Malik Omaid

On the eve of 24th March Saudi Arabia started an operation against the Housthi rebels in Yemen. There were already speculations of the presence of Paksitani forces in Saudi Arabia which later were claimed to be there for joint military exercise. But after an Arab channel claimed that Pakistan will join the operation being conducted in Yemen twitter went abuzz and Pakistanis were concerned on possible Pakistani entry in the operation. Foreign office gave a diplomatic response that they were considering and PM said they will give response if Saudi Arabia is under threat. Major Pakistani twitterati responded to these events and some of the selected tweets are collected here. There were trends of #StopWarsInMuslimWorld, #BeUnitedMuslims and #Yemen on twitter. Along with #AlwaysInOurHeartsZaynMalik and #AUSvIND. You know the entertainment goes on!

Urdu Tweeters also took part in the debate.


Syed asked if Pakistan joins the joint forces in Yemen against rebels will they also join in the operation against Pakistani rebels?

Mubashar Akram criticized the behaviour of Pakistani analysts. His view was since it is not confirmed that Pakistan is joining the war we should avoid criticism.

    The Pakistani response is a personal/familial response of Nawaz:

    Nawaz took refuge there.
    He will take refuge there again or in UK – it is on the cards.
    He has business interests there.
    To me it is moronic. We as we speak are essentially equivalent to stark naked. We should not try to clothe somebody.
    I know it from personal experience – how much respect Saudis and the Arabs at large have for us.
    The name “Rafiq” is for a Pakistani – shit loader.
    For Pakistan – this is not the first – we were in Saudi before in the eighties, Zia-ul-Haque in Jordan against Palestinians and in Syria in favor of Asad.
    Pakistan has been playing “prostitutes” for too long.
    Lekin that Indian movie quote – “humare zamane main tawayefooN k bHee kuch osool hua karte the?”.
    Our leaders are worse than Tawayef.
    Al-Quida now will have more reason to come at us tighter.
    Raheel Shareef going with the take – I shall have no respect for him.
    Well ———— YOU GUYS ELECTED HIM – I DID NOT VOTE – BESIDES IT WOULD NOT HAVE MATTERED IF I DID!!!!!
