Social media users have been calling out Prime Minister Imran Khan for his silence on the Noor Mukadam murder and launching a tree plantation drive in Islamabad on Monday instead as the country cries out for justice for Noor and other victims of violence against women.

The prime minister has not tweeted about the murder of the 27-year-old woman.

One user said the entire nation wants the premier to comment on the situation.

Others were more harsh in their approach.

Some users felt he was ignoring people's issues.

Others went straight to the point.

One user just wanted a single comment from the premier.

Another felt there was something amiss.

Pass bills, urged one user, who thought tree plantation could wait.

Some users felt angered by his plantation campaign.

Others felt that the premier had sown the seeds of violence with his earlier comments linking vulgarity and women's clothing.

One user created a plan of action for him and his government.

People across the country are crying out for change after Mukadam's brutal murder. Women have been talking about how they feel unsafe and let down by the people who are supposed to protect them. Amidst all this, PM Imran's silence on the matter has angered many people who are looking to him for support and action.

O man! Why do people mix-up issues that are so distinct.
Nasir Jul 27, 2021 10:59am
Amazed the case will be pursued by court .
ST Jul 27, 2021 11:01am
Why the people are so merciless and there is a lot of hue and cry over plantation? .He already ordered for a strict action against the culprit. So why we not spare him to deal with other problems as well?
Nk Jul 27, 2021 11:03am
Everyone on SM is talking about Late Ms. Noor. Who will raise voice for the couple who were hanged because of court marriage? Hypocrites at there best. Those who just keep aside the case of free mingling between the sexes should think a lot. Murder for Money, Woman. or Property is as old as humanity but to control it there are norms defined in almost all the holy books so please abide by them. Being critical to the PM will not resolve this case.

These twitteratis need to calm down. Hundreds of people are murdered around the world on a daily basis. Without plants and trees, even more people will die due to global warming, thirst and drought.
Hasaan Jul 27, 2021 11:10am
Suspect arrested. What else do you want from him. When he says that I would hang such person in public, you would say such a cruel thing.
Justice Jul 27, 2021 11:17am
IK is very "sneaky". He conveniently avoids talking important matter of the day...
Shagufta Aziz Jul 27, 2021 11:23am
Once I was walking as usual in F9 park with my mother in the evening. Suddenly we heard men voices coming from opposite side. We tensed, but then I saw that few Chinese men (7-8) were walking. I relaxed. See if it were Pakistani men, I would have feared, but for foreigners I am okay. I know all are not bad, but I have had personal incidents in the park. I know all are not bad. There are educated people as well but still..... We stopped going to park after Maghreb.. Moral: jis tarhan Pakistan mein apni gari ki khud fikar Kar Kay chalatay, isi tarhan why go to meet men/ boys at their homes or other places.

@ST Excellent comment. Well said
Kamran Jul 27, 2021 11:31am
It was reprehensible crime and he already order strict action. The due course is being followed up. Very disappointing how things are being manipulated to portray negatively a very positive step. Hundred of thousand of people are effected by environment change, including women, children, if initiatives not taken on time, millions of lives and livelihood will be at stake.
Don Keraja Jul 27, 2021 11:47am
Bit harsh on poor PMIK. He is human after all, not a robot!
Shahbaz Ahmed Tarar Jul 27, 2021 11:54am
He is P.M of Pakistan, he has to think and do alot for the future of all Pakistanis. There are institutions who r working on it. And we hope justice for Noor.
Tariq Jul 27, 2021 12:07pm
This is the job of local administration! What's wrong with Pakistani people? In US every minute a woman get raped so should Biden comes out to do something! This is not how government works
Shezi Jul 27, 2021 12:20pm
All of you can see how much time Paks have to waste on social media linking unrelated subjects. Moreover, its good the PM didn't comment on the case. If he did then it would have been taken as rhetoric against women. So a wise PM.
Rubina Jul 27, 2021 12:37pm
PM has much important issues to address to, instead of butting-in murder cases. there are relevant agencies to deal with such cases and they are doing so. just because the murderer and murdered belong to the elite class, does not provide ground for people to demand such foolishness.
Irfan Huq Jul 27, 2021 12:40pm
The country's leader is also known as comfort in chief. People are waiting from the PM to hear some words of comfort and Assure them that it won't be business as usual but he will monitor the case and give women a feel of safety.
AH Jul 27, 2021 12:46pm
This murder is no different to the other murders that occur. He hasn't the time to comment on every single crime committed in Pakistan.
Toni Jul 27, 2021 12:46pm
Shame on Twitter users' ignorance, its not Prime Minister job to run a commentary on a matters in front of police and the courts; stop making yourself look stupid.
M. Saeed Jul 27, 2021 01:32pm
Let us give the police and investigative agencies time to finish their started work before pressing the issue for urgent results. Our reaction should be only on anything lacking the due attention.
Chrís Dăn Jul 27, 2021 02:09pm
Noorś murder is very appropriately being handled by police. Even the second heinous murder of an unknown begger woman is ignored fully because of this VIP murder. What else do you wish?
HS Jul 27, 2021 02:15pm
This is so nuts! So he shouldn’t plant trees because a nut case killed a poor woman? Get a grip!
Jo Jul 27, 2021 02:38pm
A leader who doesn't understand misogyny. Happy to promote it sadly.
Talha Jul 27, 2021 02:49pm
@Justice Global warming doesn't just impact current but future generations of all living beings. While women rights is an important topic, it is condemnable that the educated lot of this country are downplaying the issue of global warming. He is Prime Minister of Pakistan and should address all issues within his constitutional powers and human capacity. One man cannot fix all problems. I appreciate and support the women who are raising their voices for their rights and urge them to continue their efforts and fight until they are empowered but please don't downplay global warming. The masses already don't care about cleanliness and importance of tree plantation and rebuking PM IK's efforts will only have a negative impact. Pakistan is one of the most affected countries from climate change! My suggestion would be to approach women MNAs of ruling party and holding them accountable for what they've done in terms of legislation to protect and empower the rural and urban women of Pakistan.
Zahid Jul 27, 2021 02:54pm
@Chrís Dăn yes and why the other murders in the country aren’t getting publicity of the same level? Why these so called liberals don’t unite and use SM to highlight every single crime in pakistan?
ZAK Jul 27, 2021 03:07pm
This shows how sick and depressed Pakistani society is. They are not happy at any cost always politicize each and everything. Who says all women are in danger? People are safe as ever. This is a propaganda campaign of opposition against IK.
ZAK Jul 27, 2021 03:08pm
Pakistanis are enemies of nature plus animal cruelty. This shows the real sickness of society as a whole.
ZAK Jul 27, 2021 03:09pm
It's because of IK the culprits are still in Pakistan and getting punished. Not every matter needs his statements.
M. Asghar Jul 27, 2021 03:11pm
Every citizen has the basic right of protection, but, at present, this game is being overplayed.
Toronto Raptors Jul 27, 2021 03:13pm
Stop overreacting. The case is being dealt with as per law.
EQ8Rhomes Jul 27, 2021 03:37pm
Did PM IK HAVE to be SEEN planting a TREE in an already launched programme instead of lending support to the emerging ,blatant murder ot NOOR Mukadam? The public's point is: Does Imran Khan care so little fore women that a TREE needed MORE attention, and his EGO needed even MORE caressing? Couldn't a deputy ;publicize the TREE planting ? I guess Ms NOOR Mukadam DID NOT wear the RIGHJT clothes at her slaughter? PM IK is HIDING!
EQ8Rhomes Jul 27, 2021 03:51pm
@Nasir Dawn, PLEASE update Pakistanis on the motorway RAPE of a mother and brutalization of her children! We are only interested in finding out how the LAW is working on her THEIR behalf! Or, is it?
Zafar Jul 27, 2021 04:04pm
He’s been told to not comment on matters concerning sexual harassment of women because when ever he has opened his mouth his revelations and point of view has back fired, you see for him all men are predators and for that reason women should cover them selves stay at home and not go out, like many who are asking the question why she go there, why she mingling with men, bla bla bla, why don’t you all ask each other when women will be given their due respect and safety when will we guarantee their safety, respect and dignity they deserve with out judging them for who they are, caste, class, religion, profession they are our Pakistani women….When will we protect them/our women?
Gold_Leaf Jul 27, 2021 04:28pm
When PM passes remarks on clothes, netizens advises him better to stay silent. When he stays silent, same group lose their mind.
Ibrahim S Jul 27, 2021 05:03pm
PM IK a great magician fooling people .
Taimoor khan Jul 27, 2021 05:08pm
Seriously? Grow up. He is going to comment on every issue happening in Pakistan? He would be on Twitter 24*7 otherwise. Tree plantation is major issue facing Pakistani nation which effect our future survival. For murder, his government on it and police is dealing with it.
Shahid Jul 27, 2021 07:25pm
That's the sad part PM Imran khan. He needs to prioritize the important issues. PM Imran khan should seriously reduce basic food prices, electricity prices,petrol and gas prices. He is unable to get the country's looted money back from Nawaz Sherif and Zardari Shahbaz Sherif. Nor millions of gas and electricity theft from the rich ruling corrupt Mafia and politicians. He promised to provide jobs , improve education and hospitals but the poor masses continue to suffer.
Ibrahim S Jul 27, 2021 07:40pm
Why PM IK is continue to seek cheap popularity . We are appreciate his initiative and support to plant tree but making head lives news non stop is little too much . We have more pressing issue to Address than planting trees . Please give chance to others to complete the task .
Laila Jul 28, 2021 03:18pm
He has become a true politician. Womens life, safety and rights are not on his list of priorities. But im sure when he gets the time, he will be happy to blame Noor or her family. After all she is responsible for her death by meeting a man in his home. Just like his previous rape apologist and patriarchal views. Systematic violence on women is everyday occurrence across Pakistan. Plants are more important for our survival. It's not like women are needed to ensure human races survival... wait...
Ayan Jul 28, 2021 07:25pm
@Anonymouseee No one will die if the world gets 3 degrees warmer. Global warming ranks 15th as the list of priority concerns for Pakistanis. They would rather have food and medicine than concern themselves with a natural phenomenon which can't be reversed.
Dija Jul 30, 2021 12:20pm
Convinced; IK is very short sighted - rather than being a PM he should have opted to become a Gardener. Please ask him about his so called version of Madina ke Riyasat when justice cannot be served to even those who are most deserving!
