Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday passed sexist remarks against Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, calling him ‘Sahiba’ during an address in South Waziristan.

“I came into power through struggle and hard work unlike Bilawal ‘Sahiba’ (miss) who, using the will of her mother became the head of political party,” Khan said at the public gathering.

While the premier received severe backlash over an apparent ‘slip of tongue’, jumping the bandwagon is veteran singer Jawad Ahmed.

Taking to Twitter, the Bin Tere crooner pointed out, “Imran Khan and Bilawal Zardari are both graduates of Oxford University. They both are from the 1%, the elite. They are both Chairmen of their parties in government. They are both insulting each other instead of giving a solid economic plan for the 99%, for middle class, poor and the youth.”

He continued, “In a country where women are already treated as second grade human beings and are harassed and molested on a daily basis with no cover of law available for them – Imran Khan’s indecent, misogynist, sexist and derogatory remarks against Bilawal Zardari would only makes it worse for them.”

“Women supporting this indecent man Imran Khan should think about their own future now because what this Oxford graduate with no morals and scruples of any sort for others apart from his own family, is teaching the youth is not only to be ill mannered but also disrespectful to women,” Ahmed concluded.

However, responding to the PM’s comments in a media interaction, Bilawal said, “Agar Khan sahab samajhti hai ke iss kisam ka comment deke wo kisi ko insult karaha hai tou sirf apne aap ka insult karaha hai (If Khan sahab think he’s insulting someone by posing such comments, the only person he’s insulting is himself).”
