Fesl Reza-Khan, the husband of actress Armeena Khan, has come out against the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for posting a picture of his wife and daughter on one of the party’s Twitter accounts. He has demanded that the party apologise to him for doing so daughter Armeena Khan.
Numerous social media users, including Pakistani actor Osman Khalid Butt, have also requested that the PML-N delete the image of the actress.
“You are accountable for this account, PMLN leadership. You have violated every standard of decency by posting a picture of my infant to troll my wife. I and my daughter have no interest in politics in Pakistan. However, as a father, I will safeguard my child. “Sincerely apologize,” he wrote.
While posting a picture of the actress, the PML-N wrote: How might the debilitated leaning youthia’s train the approaching age and the fifth era youthia will be at the most minimal level.”
People who requested the removal of Armeena’s picture strongly criticized the action taken by the PML-N’s social media team.

The debate began when a supportive of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) dissident Shayan Ali posted PML-N Senior VP Maryam Nawaz’s video.
The woman conning the PML-N leader into taking a selfie is shown in the video that has gone viral. However, Maryam was asked to say, “My family are thieves,” as the woman was recording the conversation instead.
People have criticized the woman for her actions, calling them “cheap acts,” while others have supported her actions since the video went viral. Maryam, on the other hand, was seen managing the situation calmly.
PMLN leadership, you are responsible for this account. You have posted a photo of my infant, just to troll my wife, thus crossing all bounds of decency. My daughter & I have no interest in PK politics. But as a Father I will protect my child. Apologise immediately. https://t.co/hf499mKNgP

Armeena retweeted the video and said that people in the UK have freedom of speech. She also said that the woman would have “disappeared” if this had happened in Pakistan.
“Had this occurred in Pakistan, the selfie woman would’ve ‘vanished.’ 😉 I’m glad we have such freedoms to hold our politicians accountable in the UK. Our rules apply if you intend to live in Britain. The actress wrote, “We are free to express ourselves.”
The actress was criticized, and it was argued that this was not free speech but rather an act of cynicism and disrespect.
