Many celebrities including Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari, author Fatima Bhutto and artist Zulfikar Ali Bhutto voiced their disgust, calling the rhetoric “repulsive” and “sick”.

Actress and model Rabia Butt also questioned if the politician would be held accountable for his words.

Human rights activist and lawyer Nighat Dad also called out the ‘dangerous attitudes towards sexual violence.’

Bakhtawar Bhutto wrote, “His (repulsive) rhetoric belongs to his individual only and is in no way a representation of our party. In case it wasn’t already abundantly obvious — we absolutely and unequivocally stand for the rights and protection of women.”
