At a time when infections are impacting the country’s health sector with astronomical uncertainties pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, decided to one-up the bar by having a birthday celebration with little to no regard for the protocols.
The federal minister’s family, including prominent figures of Pakistan’s showbiz industry, such as actresses Resham and Hira Mani, also graced the occasion with their presence.
While birthday parties and similar events these aren’t normally frowned upon if the COVID-19 SOPs are adhered to, Fawad Chaudhry’s birthday celebration apparently had no social distancing norms, and no one was seen wearing a mask.
Outraged and befuddled, netizens took to Twitter express their feelings. And mind you, some reactions are bottom-line hateful.
One individual wearing a mask amongst a horde of ‘pawri members’ was sighted, but this obviously wasn’t enough.
