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.
The Twitterati were quick to take to the keyboards to speak their mind on the issue:
@CMShehbaz Malala's speech written for global consumption you say? She was on a world stage in case you didn't notice.— Fifi Haroon (@fifiharoon) July 13, 2013
Lahore Rotary Club felt left out. MT @CMShehbaz: Good speech by Malala! Could have been better--seemed to be written for global consumption.— Sadanand Dhume (@dhume) July 13, 2013
