Taking exception to malicious campaign on social media ridiculing the sacrifices of country’s Shuhda, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has termed it horrifying while lamenting that the self-righteous political narratives are poisoning the minds of the youth and weaponising the hate speech. PML-Q President Ch Shujaat Hussain also condemned the vilification campaign against the Army, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Taking to his Twitter handle, Prime Minister Shehbaz wrote on Sunday: “The social media campaign belittling & ridiculing the sacrifices of our martyrs was horrifying. This is what self-righteous political narratives do: they poison the minds of the youth & weaponise hate speech. Which way are we headed? 

The moment calls for a deep reflection.”

Meanwhile, eulogizing the efforts of Pakistan Army in every hour of trial, PML-Q President Ch Shujaat Hussain has said that the entire nation mourns the loss of Army men’s lives in the Lasbela tragedy while urging politicians to put their political interests on the back burner and support Army.

In his statement on Sunday, Ch Shujaat said that the Army had served the nation in every calamity and hour of trial. It has played a significant role in the restoration of peace and security and the elimination of terrorism from the country, he added. 

The PML-Q leader stated that the entire nation was grieved over the martyrdom of the Shuhda of Lasbela tragedy. He called upon the politicians to leave their political expediencies behind and foiled the propaganda campaign against the Armed Forces. He asked them to fully support the Army

He was of the view that everything could be tolerated but propaganda against Army could not be allowed.
