Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif is not one to stay back on trend, and his latest tweet touches what is trending both on twitter and in the real world.

After teenage activist Malala Yousafzai addressed the UN General Assembly on her 16th birthday, Shahbaz Sharif tweeted:

Wearing a pink head scarf, Malala told UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and nearly 1,000 students from around the world attending a Youth Assembly at UN headquarters in New York that education was the only way to improve lives.

“I am not against anyone, neither am I here to speak in terms of personal revenge against the Taliban or any other terrorist group. I’m here to speak up for the right of education for every child,” she said.

Reactions pour

The Twitterati were quick to take to the keyboards to speak their mind on the issue:

@Ali Tanoli: For sane, rational and sensible people to pay heed to what you have to say, you first have to learn how to think and critically analyse. Not taught what to think and regurgitate whatever you have been indoctrinated with.

hate to admit it, but agree with Shahbaz. Separately, why is he always involved in matters that have nothing to do with Punjab, for which he is the CM (and based in the PROVINCIAL assembly).

i also saw a picture of Nawaz' trip to China, where Shahbaz was beaming along in all the pictures. Why do we need the CM of a province on a trip like this? Even most of the investment agreements are centered around Gwadar, so still don't see the need to have Punjab CM along with you. but then again i'm a daft citizen, not one of our well educated political leaders. Mujhey kya behtar pata :)
