Islamabad (August 3, 2017): Former Information Minister Maryam Aurangzeb has demanded to launch probe into the allegations leveled by Member of National Assembly (MNA) Ayesha Gulalai.
In her statement she said that Ayesha Gulalai’s statement is extremely sorrowful and painful.
Maryam said that no society could even imagine of such a collective moral low, where politics is being done over mothers, sisters, and daughters.
Marriyum Aurangzeb said that it’s shameful to harass women and vowed to end this culture.
Being a woman I request to stop this behavior in the society, she continued.
She said that no woman will think to join politics after seeing the character assassination of Ayesha Gulalai on national television channels and social media. She further said the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) is silent on this issue.“The messages contained words that nobody’s honour would tolerate. They can be retrieved by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA)”, she said.
The PEMRA too is silently watching the show like a spectator.
As a woman I appeal with a heavy heart to everyone to stop this game, as mother, sister, and daughter I request all the political parties to keep respect to woman in view, Maryam added.
Society is incomplete without women but their vilification is a proof of moral abyss. Could a woman ever even think of venturing into politics after such talk shows and discussions. The foul smelling culture of throwing mud on each others’ mothers, sisters, and daughter must has to be buried forever, she added.
Earlier on Tuesday, Ayesha Gulalai alleged that the honour of PTI female members is not safe from PTI chairman Imran Khan and his gang. She said that Imran Khan sent ‘indecent’ text messages to female members of the party.She revealed that the first message she received from Imran Khan was in October 2013 and many other female members also received those messages. She said that Imran Khan keeps Blackberry phone and asks the female members of the party to also carry Blackberry so that messages couldn’t be traced.
Ayesha Gulalai said that she had no intentions of joining the ruling party but at least PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif could be trusted for honouring women.
