Prime Minister Imran Khan met on Thursday the production team of Turkish drama series Dirilis: Ertugrul in Islamabad.

The Turkish delegation was led by producer Kemal Tekden. Information Minister Shibli Faraz and Kashmir Committee Chairman Shehryar Afridi were present in the meeting too.

While the prime minister met the Ertugrul team in Islamabad, the Hazara community awaited him for the fifth consecutive day in Quetta on Thursday.

People from the Hazara ethnic minority have been staging a sit-in on a highway near Quetta against the killing of 10 Hazara coal miners in Balochistan’s Machh area.

On Wednesday, PM Khan promised to travel to Quetta but didn’t specify a date for his visit.

Maryam Nawaz, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and other opposition leaders visited the families of slain coal miners in Quetta on Thursday.

This has irked many Pakistanis who took to social media to decry the premier’s priorities. Below are some reactions:

This is the second time that the PTI government has come under fire for its handling of the situation. Yesterday, PM’s aide Zulfi Bukhari visited Quetta and received much criticism after a video clip of his conversation with the Hazara protestors went viral.

Bukhari tweeted in his defense, saying the video did not depict a conversation with the victims’ families. It was taken out of context, according to the PM’s aide.

    thousands of innocent karachi residents have been killed and murdered
    no one cared
    this hazara incident is as painful as karachi resident murders and no different.
    no PM came to console karachi resident killings.
    bury your dead and seek forgiveness from Almighty
