Pak Minister says Imran a 'misogynist who has no respect for women' - Islamabad News

She added that PTI Vice President Maryam Nawaz was right about Imran Khan when she called him a misogynist. Her tweet came in response to a highly derogatory doctored image depicting Maryam and Khan, that PTI leader and former human rights minister Shireen Mazari tweeted.

"It's unfortunate that we have to even mention this sorry excuse for a human being who continues to stoop to new lows of misogyny," she said, Geo News reported.

"Imran Khan has proven, time and again, that he is a misogynist who has no respect for women and that he considers them to be nothing more than objects to be abused and harassed," she wrote.

"He has encouraged and inculcated this behaviour and mindset both in his party members and his followers," the information minister continued.

"It is especially disappointing and sad to see female party members and followers of PTI not only condoning such behaviour but partaking in it and celebrating it too. This is extremely shameful and is a true reflection of how small a man IK really is."

This isn't the first time that the PTI chairman and his supporters have come under fire for propagating misogynist remarks.

Back in May, journalists, activists, and politicians had condemned Khan's derogatory remarks against Maryam when he -- referring to Maryam's Sargodha rally on May 19 in which she continually berated him -- said: "Someone had sent me the speech delivered by Maryam Nawaz in Sargodha yesterday. In that speech, she uttered my name with such passion that I would like to tell her: Maryam, please be careful, your husband may get upset because you were constantly repeating my name", Geo News reported.
