Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan was embroiled in a Twitter controversy on Friday as the official handle of Pakistan’s embassy in Serbia severely criticised him and revealed the dire economic situation they are experiencing.
“With inflation breaking all previous records, how long do you expect Imran Khan that we government official(s) will remain silent and keep working for you without been paid for past 3 months and our children been forced out of school due to non-payment of fees. Is this naya (new) Pakistan?” the embassy posted in a now deleted tweet.
“I am sorry, Imran Khan, am not left with another option,” the tweet added, along with a parody music video on the Pakistani Prime Minister.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, said that the social media profiles of its Embassy in Serbia were hacked.
“The Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts of the Embassy of Pakistan in Serbia have been hacked. Messages being posted on these accounts are not from the Embassy of Pakistan in Serbia,” it stated on Twitter.
Dr Khalid, the man who handles Khan’s social media, claimed that the account was hacked.
The Twitter account of Pakistan's embassy in Serbia is hacked as per information from foreign office and @ForeignOfficePk is conducting an enquiry into it.
