Baaghi TV: Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari has said that the US embassy is interfering in Pakistan’s domestic politics. She said that it seems that the embassy is still in Trump’s mode. The US embassy should follow the principles of diplomacy.
She said this in response to a tweet in which it was said that Trump’s defeat has shocked dictators and corrupt people, to which Ahsan Iqbal, while replying to the tweet, said that there is a similar one in Pakistan which is going to happen soon.
US Embassy still working in Trumpian mode in support of convicted absconder & intervening brazenly in our internal politics! Monroe Doctrine also died centuries ago! US Embassy must observe norms of diplomacy – so if fake then clarify thru tweet; if not then apology tweet needed pic.twitter.com/YI66Ykqqli

Shireen Mazari said that if the tweet is fake then it should be explained through a tweet otherwise an apology should be issued. Meanwhile Sindh Governor Imran Ismail also said in response to the tweet that retweeting against our Prime Minister is against diplomatic protocol. If Twitter is fake or hacked then immediately need to apologize with explanation.
Following Mazari’s demand for an apology, #ApologizeUSEmbassy became a top trend on social media. According to reports, the US Embassy in Islamabad has tweeted in response to the claims that the United States is interfering in domestic Pakistani politics.
