ISLAMABAD—A taunting tweet by journalist and actor Sanaa Bucha (pictured) addressing the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations, Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor received a telling response from him.
It all started after Bucha copied one of the general’s tweets on the military’s voluntary budget cut and said: “Your feelings for the country apart, please do not reduce the wages of your social media team which were enhanced some months ago.”
I hope all your dues have been cleared by ISPR? If any balance payment pending on our side you have a right to claim. Thanks for your services you have done while you were associated with ISPR.— Asif Ghafoor (@peaceforchange) June 6, 2019
The general responded in the same coin: “I hope all your dues have been cleared by ISPR? If any balance payment pending on our side you have a right to claim. Thanks for your services you have done while you were associated with ISPR.”
Gen. Ghafoor’s surprisingly sharp response mainly drew praise from twitterati: “Nailed it,” “Great reply,” “Well done”, and “What a shut up call” were some of the responses. One even suggested that ISPR extend Bucha’s contract or give her a new one.
Some wanted to know what role did she play during her association with ISPR while a few others thought that the general’s response was “indecent” and “below the belt.”
If my call is so important to them, why don’t they answer it for 22 minutes?
How come when I want to, but something specific online is the only item out of stock.
