Fake news and power outages – this week in Pakistan’s business and economics twitterverse

The nation is fast headed towards Eid, and that means there is nothing else being done at breakneck speed. As we go towards the peak of the bi-yearly “ab toh Eid ke baad ho ga” season, load shedding and continued political turmoil is front and center. Asad Ullah Kamran brings you all this and more in this week’s social media roundup. 


Look at the bright side of things, at least they’ll know what to do since they’ve been here before.

Has anyone else noticed that Muzammil Aslam really hates the current government ? So much so he might be peddling fake news as per a recent tweet from the Finance ministry.

A big oopsie on the part of Insafians led by Muzammil Aslam. 

Why isn’t this surprising anyone? It’s obvious isn’t it, work is for chumps essentially. Not you though, keep grinding. 

That’s all fair and good, what about the electricity outages prior to the vote of no confidence that was termed as maintenance ? 

That’s nice the valiant efforts of keyboard warriors being recognised for their contribution. Lest we forget the military casualties and sacrifices. 

Nobody in Pakistan would be surprised if the independence of the country was earmarked as a conspiracy designed by the west at this point. 

Everyone can figure out this one on their own.  

Keeps getting better and better. 

After doling out Eidhi to family and friends, keep a little something in your wallets for the government too after Eid.
