This is not the first time she was slammed for her inappropriate statements. Earlier, she said that COVID-19 has improved the air quality of various cities of Pakistan.
Just days before Eid she made a hilarious statement. Zartaj Gul said only those people who were infected with the virus should wear masks to save others from getting the disease.
Coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19. COVID-19 means 2019 coronavirus. ‘CO’ means corona, ‘VI’ means a virus, ‘D’ stands for disease and the 19 referred to the year 2019.
Later she took to Twitter to clarify her statement.
روزانہ ٹی وی پر گھنٹوں بات کرتی ہوں، پرچی کے بغیر۔ 😊
کہنا چاہتی تھی کہ وباء کا اثر، شدت مختلف ممالک میں مختلف ہیں۔
چند لمحوں کی خطاء پر یوں ماتم کناں ہونے کی بجائے اپنی جماعتوں کے حشر نشر پر توجہ دیں تو شائد ان کے حق میں بہتر ہو۔ تنقید سے نہیں گھبراتی، اور مظبوط ہوتی ہوں۔ 😊
