Imran Khan’s Viral Photo As Lord Shiva Causes Outrage In Pakistan Social Media

  • Imran Khan’s Viral Photo As Lord Shiva Causes Outrage In Pakistan Social Media

A photo of Pakistani former cricketer and politician Imran Khan as Lord Shiva that has gone viral on social media has caused quite a bit of an uproar.

 

This is not only from Khan’s supporters but also from Hindus and Muslims in both India and Pakistan. The Pakistan Tehrek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief is known to court controversy, and with the country’s general elections just a couple of months away, targeting rivals is not new.

 

According to reports, the edited photo was posted on social media by a Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), PML-N, supporter on April 8, 2018, and since then, it has gone viral on several online platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

 

Screenshots of the picture shows it being posted on a Facebook page called ‘We Love Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif and PML(N)’, although, after a search through Facebook, the post is no longer available.

 

“If we are equal citizen in pakistan so what is this ? This is not in islam that. We want to take action against this. We are Pakistanis but first we are hindu. I requested to @AsimBajwaISPR @MaryamNSharif @ImranKhanPTI to take action ageist this facebook page,” posted a certain Kaidar Nath on Twitter.

This was then subsequently shared by others on social media, with many commenting on how the Pakistani Hindu community has been offended by the depiction.
