Iffat Omar accused of lying on social media after getting ‘privileged’ vaccine shot
Netizens gave a hard time to actress Iffat Omar on Monday when she was alleged for lying regarding getting a privileged coronavirus vaccine shot that prompted her to immediately delete her clarification tweet as soon as the netizens called her out.
The actress was among the privileged few who were vaccinated against COVID-19 at the place of Federal Minister for Housing and Works, Chaudhry Tariq Bashir Cheema.
The video went viral on social media.
یہ ہے پاکستان کی اشرافیہ کا اصل چہرہ۔ ان کا تعلق کسی سیاسی جماعت سے ہو، یہ کسی بھی اہم ادارے سے ہوں، پاکستان کے عام آدمی کو یہ پاؤں کی جوتی کی نوک پر رکھتے ہیں، انہیں اپنی شان و شوکت، پروٹوکول اور مقاصد عزیز ہیں۔ عام پاکستانی اور اُس کے بچوں کی زندگیاں اِن کے لیے مذاق ہیں pic.twitter.com/SP9wUlGEjv— Iqrar ul Hassan Syed (@iqrarulhassan) March 29, 2021
In response to the video, Iffat Omer tweeted that “I would like to clarify this was a booster shot of a Cansino (trial) vaccine received from UHS who also provided the previous shot. It’s not illegal or privilege”
But she deleted her tweet as soon as netizens called her out.
Prime Minister's Spokesperson Dr Shahbaz Gill also bashed the actress and other accomplices on Twitter.
شرمناک حرکت ہے اس بی بی کی۔ یہ جعلی لنڈے کے لبرل صرف گالی گلوچ کرنے تک لبرل ہیں۔ ویسے ان کے نہ کوئی اخلاقیات ہیں نہ ہی کوئی شرم حیا ہے انکو۔ باتیں ان کی سنو تو لگتا ہے اس بڑا کوئی قانون پسند نہیں اور کرتوت انکے اس قدر اخلاق سے گرے ہوئے۔ https://t.co/x7YDtoeuHD— Dr. Shahbaz GiLL (@SHABAZGIL) March 29, 2021
American blogger Cynthia D Ritchie also jumped in and tweeted on Monday. She wrote, “If someone lied about which vaccine she took and whether or not she jumped queue, does this diminish her credibility as a witness in court cases?”

Shoiab Taimor wrote “If you have to lie, at least do some basic research. There is only one dose of the vaccine and the trials are long over. Even if they were happening, no one gets vaccinated at home.”
Sara pointed out that Iffat Omar deleted her tweet.
Hahaha she deleted it. Lol busted— Sarah (@sara_05me) March 29, 2021
Ammad Yousaf said, “This lady (Iffat) is neither a front line health worker nor above 60 years of age.”
