Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf led federal government has come under fire for appointing singer and actor Ali Zafar as the ambassador to the Namal Knowledge City. The groundbreaking of Namal Knowledge City phase 1 was performed by PM Imran Khan last week.
Singe and actor Ali Zafar took to Twitter to announce his appointment as ambassador to the Namal Knowledge City .
“Honoured to be nominated ambassador to the first & biggest knowledge city in Pakistan “Namal Knowledge City” envisioned by the honorable Prime Minister Imran Khan designed by Tony Ashai,” Ali Zafar said in a tweet.
Ali Zafar further added that Knowledge is key for the development of a country and its people. Following his announcement, social media users expressed their anger over his appointment citing the ongoing sexual harassment case against the Teefa in Trouble actor.
Renowned journalist, Benazir Shah, wrote that this is clear message to the women in Pakistan.

Moreover, people are also not happy with this decision and are wondering how come Ali Zafar was preferred over Shehzad Roy.
