Aseefa urges Maryam to take note of Khawaja Asif’s re­marks

Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY - OUR RE­PORTER

KARACHI—Aseefa Bhutto Zar­dari, younger daugh­ter of ex- prime min­is­ter and PPP leader Be­nazir Bhutto, has picked up the cause of women folks and asked Maryam Nawaz to take no­tice of the “deroga­tory re­marks” from her party’s fed­eral min­is­ter Khawaja Asif.

She tweeted a mes­sage to the daugh­ter of the present prime min­is­ter re­mind­ing her that the hon­our of ladies, in­clud­ing those in the par- lia­ment must be safe­guarded.

Un­for­tu­nately, one of the se­nior min­is­ters of Nawaz League had made deroga­tory re­marks against a lady mem­ber of the Na­tional Assem­bly,(Shireen Mazari of PTI) which was a cause of con­cern. Maryam should take no­tice of re­marks from her party’s mem­bers, es­pe­cially when they are hold­ings po­si­tions in the gov­ern­ment.

Khawaj Asf, min­is­ter for de­fence, and power, has been widely crit­i­cised for his re­marks against PTI lady mem­ber in the lower house.
