Actor Mehwish Hayat has stated that Pakistanis should not be provoked because they are “cornered tigers”.
The Tamgha-i-Imtiaz awardee said this in a tweet after Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address to the United Nations General Assembly.
“Cornered Tigers” — a term coined by PM Khan during his cricket days — refers to Pakistan’s resilience and ability fight back when it is tucked away in the corner.
Our PM’s address to the UNGA was awe inspiring. So glad that we have a leader who so eloquently put our case to the world. The UN has to take heed & end the oppression in Kashmir. Remember the Pakistani nation are like cornered tigers don’t provoke us! 🇵🇰#ImranKhanVoiceOfKashmir
