“Judging by some leading feminists and actresses, Afghanistan was a paradise until last week,” said Fatima Bhutto. In another tweet, she said, “Thanks so much. Do Palestine next.”

“(Has anyone told her about Kashmir?),” asked Fatima Bhutto in a tweet. The bold and courageous Fatima Bhutto was born in Kabul. She is the daughter of politician Murtaza Bhutto and niece of former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto. She is the granddaughter of former president Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

she is saying right. I think Imran should call her and include her in PTI. She could help capture Sindh with her ponkas

Personally I think its a nonsense line of argument and nothing but whataboutery. Why Palestine? Why not Kashmir also, and why not Somalia, why not Rohingyas why not this why not that. If this keeps up, very soon no one will speak up for anyone, because there will always be a why not this also.

I believe she was pointing out hypocrisy of the west so it did not warrant every country to be counted. Palestine should be included because Angelina is from Hollywood controlled by small caps

You can believe whatever you want to but I see this kind of whataboutery all the time. Like I said in post not to long ago, for some, some issues are more close, near and dear to them, than others. She's visited Afghanistan a couple of times so probably is more closer to this issue that Palestine.

I find it as ridiculous as when westerners say every muslim across the world has to publicly speak out against any act done by a Muslim otherwise Muslims condone it.

Not a big fan of any Bhutto...

However, it's not about whataboutism and more about calling her a coward.

It is easy to criticize "Bad Talibans" and earn all the accolades and social endorsements.

However, there is a social and financial cost associated with criticizing "Good Talibans" who are butchering Palestinians and Kashmiris with impunity!!!
