So, we all skills adept Zartaj Gul is at producing ‘intellectual’ gems, right? Her statements about political issues often catapult her onto the middle stage and therefore the politician is usually dragged for commenting on issues without carefully researching. Well, something of this type went on again.
In a television program last night, Zartaj Gul offered congratulations to PML-N because the birthday of General Zia-Ul-Haq
In an effort to troll PML-N for its origins being within the Zia era, Zartaj tried to supply a PML-N representative “mubarakbaad” for August 17 as she said it had been the birthday of Zia-Ul-Haq. The minister mixed the dates and ended up arguing that August 17, the date on which Zia’s plane crashed, is that the birthday of the infamous military dictator.
She further tried to imply that PML-N, the party , was founded by General Zia-Ul-Haq and consistent with her since it had been Zia’s birthday therefore the members of PML-N should celebrate and that they should pay tribute to the pivotal role played by Zia within the creation of the party .
