PTI Karachi invites youth to honor Orya Maqbool & Khalil ur Rehman Qamar




Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf which notoriously engages audiences with its inventive gimmicks is currently making arrangements for an event to honor Orya Maqbool & Khalil ur Rehman Qamar at a meet-and-greet with PTI leadership, being held in Karachi.

The event is being held under the theme of ‘Youth of Today Future of Pakistan’ to influence the youth of the country, at Karachi Golf Club. It is cause for extreme disappointment that PTI considers Orya Maqbool and KRQ to be worthy ideals for the country’s youth.













Orya Maqbool, a local columnist is notorious for his pro-Taliban, anti-minority, misogynistic, violence-inciting and pro-Taliban stances. He not only praised TLP leader Khadim Rizvi during sit-ins against the government, he has even publicly announced full support. Regardless the party leader in Punjab Mehmood ur Rasheed insisted that Orya Maqbool Jan is still one of the recommendations made by his party.

Meanwhile, Pakistani Drama/Film Writer‎ Khalil ur Rehman Qamar has also been under the radar for his sexist remarks and problematic views regarding women, feminism and the Aurat March in Pakistan. The writer especially came under fire after he shocked audiences by crossing the boundaries of human dignity by hurling profanities at a fellow female panelist and making personal attacks on her appearance.

Disappointingly enough, this is not the first time we have found PTI pandering to the religious right for increased popularity, disregarding the problematic character and views of the people the party brings under its banner.
