My Tweet Threads with Kamran Shafi

Filed under: Uncategorized — sharafs @ 1:03 pm

I had posted a response to this slanderous article in the Express Tribune but the online editor chose not to publish it. I have complains from many more you posted in my favour but had a straight No or clipping of their remarks. I has asked the editors to give me space for a rebuttal and I await.

The fact is that I was in discussion on national security and the fallout of the MEMO issue.I proposed questions of Security that needed answers in this perspective. I also linked it with my article in the Nation,written in May 2011 and a Talk show last month

That is the point when Mr. Kamran jumped in and questioned Imran Khan’s Clean laundering. Later he seemed irked by some tweets sent deliberately or through spamming with supposed abusive content. It transpired that many PTI tweeters had passwords compromised and someone else was spamming abuses on their IDs. One such gentleman is from Canada who apologized four times from Kamran Shafi. On my part, I tweeted that PTI is not a Moral Brigade and only voices the conscience of people awoken from slumber. Because I know Kamran Shafi from Army and Ex Servicemen Society, I candidly ended with the remark that “plz do not jump to score brownies. this is a cyber world with all sorts of people and Trojans”. I also apologized to him on behalf of all PTI tweeters and issued instructions on our email system. Nonetheless my sixth sense told me that he was up to something, proven later by the article ‘The Smell Test’. Part one slanders me and part 2 proceeds to depict the MEMO as a Deep State a la Military ploy. Readers can find the thread with timelines here.

I continue to respect the gentleman for whatever views he stands for but would request him to resist the slanderous temptation.

    @KamranShafi46 sorry for trespassing, from 180 million who lack in basic civil/social manners like traffic/pedestrian sense…@Samson_Sharaf

    @KamranShafi46 you expect them absolute decency in cyber world, and blaming them on just PTI is a bit unfair. @Samson_Sharaf

    adil_i_malik Adil I Malik
    @KamranShafi46 Would appreciate if you could kindly name any PTI office bearer for misbehave/abuse ?? @Samson_Sharaf

    adil_i_malik Adil I Malik
    @KamranShafi46 No justification 4 abusive conduct Sir, but …

    adil_i_malik Adil I Malik
    @KamranShafi46 name a single political party across the global that has ‘absolute’ control over their supporters (mind not officials) online

    adil_i_malik Adil I Malik
    @KamranShafi46 stereotyping/propagating JUST PTI enthusiasts as abusive is bit overplay, much bigger issue & entrenched in society as whole

    adil_i_malik Adil I Malik
    @KamranShafi46 it’s not all black, have a look of Mr. Rashid timeline you’ll find other PTI-iers condemning his conduct, that gets unnoticed
