NEWS DESK: Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif is under fire on Twitter and perhaps rightly so. In this day and age when one can easily search when a particular image was first shared, why would he use pictures of Mumtaz Qadri’s funeral or a gathering in India and project them as shots from Nawaz Sharif’s GT Road rally?

Naturally, he was called out for sharing fake pictures of PML-N’s show of power. One of the pictures was from the Chehlum rally of Mumtaz Qadri, which was taken on March 28, 2016.

Another picture was that of a PML-N rally in Peshawar that was tweeted last year by a party supporter.

What is more surprising is that the foreign minister has yet to delete the tweet.
