This is how media gets triggered on political tweet from Ramiz Raja
- Ramiz Raja tweeted about the political situation of Pakistan
- In his tweet on April 26th, he pointed out the problems with media.
- The electronic media gets triggered and doesn’t allow Ramiz Raja to have an opinion.
One tweet of Ramiz Raja on politics and the whole media gets triggered.
Here is what he said in his first tweet:
What’s gone wrong with our tv political shows and anchors? They have lost it-showcasing opposition’s morbid views who on their watch had fucked up Pakistan. If public is feeling the “price pang”it bloody well deserves it for voting them in power for 10 yrs.#horchuppo

After this tweet, he was heavily criticized by the journalists of Pakistan. The same journalists who preach freedom of speech but couldn’t tolerate when someone else expresses their opinion.
Here is the answer from Ramiz Raja after the journalists of Pakistan were triggered:
As a citizen think I can have an opinion on anything &verything including politics. Also with 22 yrs of international tv experience I can comment on the state of TV channels & shows. Political shows are mostly negative, agenda driven, lacking solid editorial & political intellect

Here is what the media personnel were saying, after which Ramiz Raja had to come up with the tweet above.
Is this a job saving tweet? We have too much cricket in our politics already. https://t.co/jhy3lDmr6s

Our generations of 70’s& 80’s were huge fan of your brother Wasim Raja. Fond memories of Wasim; highly talented, highly educated& a politically correct man. Sadly you lack all those qualities, poking nose in a field of politics which you know nothing about is unfortunate. https://t.co/RLAegPfQrI

Another young Imranist whose foul language we must excuse because he has not had opportunities in life (because of corruption) and who is more of an expert on everything than any expert is on anything. https://t.co/fAKihLyJRr

خوبصورت الفاظ کا چناؤ: رمیز ساری زندگی شائستگی سے کمینٹری کرنے کے بعد بھی پاکستانی عوام کا زکر گالیوں سے کرتے ہیں۔ اس سے زیادہ تمیز سے تو انڈیا کے کرکٹ سٹارز کا زکر کرتے ہیں۔ https://t.co/BlXGhbz9fw

رمیز بھائی آپ اینکرز اور عوام جتنی بھی گالیاں نکلیں اس سے پاکستان نہیں بدلنے والا، پاکستان بدلے گا صرف اور صرف پرفارمنس سے جو اگر بہتر ہوتی تو آپ کو حکومت کے دفاع کے لیے ایسی زبان اور دلائل نہ استعمال کرنے پڑتے جو عمومی طور پر بندہ اپنے گھر میں استعمال نہ کر سکے۔ https://t.co/VhdUlg0apl

In 1992, when Raja caught Illingworth of that last ball, he not only helped us win the world cup but he also ruined us all. https://t.co/gJIPRIikYB

Public deserves it? Right. Here’s a guy who was born in privilege and doesn’t know what means to be poor and short changed in the name of revolution https://t.co/TSFOHroP5V

Ramiz Raja had a simple point that he has the right to express himself. All of these journalists are always preaching about the freedom of expressions. But their ego is badly hurt when someone else expresses their opinion.
They are trying to behave like no one out of journalistic groups can have an opinion. The term ‘freedom of expression’ can only be used by us journalists.
