The PPP chairperson stressed that Imran Khan and Shah Mehmood Qureshi should review their remarks about Osama bin Laden.
He came down hard on Imran Khan for his remarks on women's wears, saying a premier should be careful while going for selection of words.
He insisted on standing by the victims at all costs and laid stress on shunning siding with the criminals on any pretext.
Lame excuses are no solution, he said stressing that costumes have no connection with the crimes like rape and other such offences.
PM Imran Khan's remarks on women’s dress also drew ire among women parliamentarians who termed the statement irresponsible and condemnable.
In a tweet, PPP Senior Leader Senator Sherry Rehman condemned the PM statement, saying:
"Whether it’s our laws or even our religion, which is very clear that respect for women is the responsibility of the beholder, no man has the right to blame women or how they dress, for violence, rape and crimes against women. Shocked that our PM is doing this. Does IK not know that by saying women should dress a certain way, he is giving oppressors and criminals against women a new narrative to justify their behaviour. There is NO justification for a prime minister to talk this way. Highly irresponsible and condemnable."
Sindh Minister for Women Development Shehla Raza said Imran Khan should think about the issues facing by the country and he should not have said this while sitting on the seat of the state premier.
