In the final hearing of the contempt of court case, the Supreme Court of Pakistan convicted Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and sentenced him till the rising of court, which lasted only a little while.
Considering the verdict ‘a joke’ was the general reaction of the twitterati who felt that the court’s decision did little to change their lives.

What AKON and Gilani have in common? "Convict". Makes the PM such a badass.

Yes the punishment was just 30 seconds. But it was 30 seconds of standing close to Iftikhar Chaudhary. And he has halitosis.
My life is desperately trying but miserably failing to be affected even a little bit by the Supreme Court's PM contempt case

Favourite moment outside court today: photographers shouting, 'Yousuf, Yousuf' to catch PM's attention.

My revenge from the system. I didn't go to the Supreme Court. I went to an event of KG branch of a school & spoke there as guest speaker.

Why is #Gilani being hailed as a hero? He has been convicted. How low and warped is our national benchmark for pride? #Pakistan
