PM Imran Khan during an address in South Waziristan passed sexist remarks against People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, calling him a ‘Sahiba’.
“I came into power through struggle and hard work unlike Bilawal Sahiba who, using the will of her mother became the head of the political party.” – Imran Khan.
Sahiba which means miss or madam in Urdu made everyone furious and the clip of him saying this was spread like fire all across social media where people criticized him for not maintaining his grace. A lot of people thought it was a slip of tongue yet many others took this all as an insult to the women gender.
Women all across the country got offended and deeply disappointed saying Imran khan thinks being a women is an insult and can easily call someone a ‘sahiba’ to disrespect him, further on for which he owes an apology to all the women out there.
Have a look at some of these tweets.
This is beyond words. It's Shameful. Unbecoming. Reprehensible. The selected PM is clearly unfit for the job. Sad day for Pakistan! https://t.co/9PdY9d8KrK

Very, very small. Calling Bilawal Bhutto Sahiba (madam) doesn’t belittle him at all. It just demonstrates Imran Khan’s lowness, indecency, and sexism. An insult to the office of the PM.

A twitter user:
Women legislators in PTI, how are you okay calling Imran Khan your leader when he thinks being a woman is an insult? #PrimeMinisterImranKhan

Soon after the video went viral Bilawal took over twitter and responded as:
What was that about small men in big offices? #PMSelect

Nonetheless PM Imran Khan was under fire for another comment he made during his official visit to Iran where he said that Japan and Germany share a border to which Bilawal again responded as:
😳 our Prime Minister thinks that Germany & Japan share a border. How embarrassing, this is what happenes when you @UniofOxford let people in just because they can play cricket. https://t.co/XJoycRsLG9
