Twitter reacted to Senator Dr. Affan Ullah Khan’s odd and improbable exchange, in which he insulted and used awful language against Anwar Maqsood and Mahira Khan.
“Mahira Khan has a mental health problem and Anwar Maqsood is drunk in this part of life. Both these shameless characters are cursed by the public. Books can be written on Mahira Khan’s character, she also flatters Indian actors for money. And Anwar Maqsood is a cursed character full of prejudice.”
ماہرہ خان کو مینٹل ہیلتھ پروبلم ہیں اور انور مقصود عمر کےاس حصہ میں شراب کےنشہ میں دھت رہتا ہے۔ان دونوں بےشرم کیریکٹر پر عوام کی لعنت ہو۔ماہرہ خان کےکردار پر تو کتابیں لکھی جا سکتی ہیں،یہ پیسہ کےلیےانڈین اداکاروں کی خوشامد بھی کرتی ہےاور انور مقصود تعصب سے بھرا ہوا لعنتی کردار ہے

Actor and musician Farhan Saeed was offended by the PML-N senator’s attack and expressed his views on his own Twitter account.
This is the mentality that doesn’t let #Pakistan grow , this is what they do when someone just gives an opinion or has a political preference . They get personal so people stop giving their opinion .
Senator ? Zuban jahilon wali. #anwarmaqsood #mahirakhan https://t.co/jioZ3QU88C

Iffat Omar tagged PML-N vice chairman Maryam Nawaz and said, “This is highly condemnable, and that too from PMLN who claims to be led by a woman.”
This is highly condemnable, and that too from PMLN who claims to be led by a woman.@MaryamNSharif, you must take immediate action against your senator.
Political criticism must not lead to character assassination.
Act Now Ma'am. https://t.co/V9XE4t6hpG

Calls himself a senator and Dr and shows extreme grace and class while addressing artists of his nation that have done so much more for Pakistan than he ever will. Not my senator, not my party.
