Pakistani celebrities have criticised the CNN journalist who called Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi for his anti-semitic remark.

Qureshi, while speaking om an interview with Bianna Golodryga about the Palestine-Israel conflict, said that Israel is “losing” the media despite their contacts.

When asked about their connections, the foreign minister said Israel has “deep pockets” and it “controls the media”. The CNN anchorperson replied that she found his statements to be anti-semitic.

Golodryga came under criticism by social media users in Pakistan, for which she said that it was depressing to see the negative comments directed towards her.

The showbiz industry came into action with the likes of Osman Khalid Butt, Yashma Gill, Sheheryar Munawwar, and Omair Rana calling out the anchorperson.

The relentless airstrikes and ground operations in Gaza have left more than 200 people dead and thousands homeless.

The foreign minister, while addressing a United Nations session, had called for the deployment of an international police force in Palestine to protect people from the heavy bombardment of Israeli forces.

He had also blamed the UN Security Council for being unable to exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.
