On it, renowned TV anchor and journalist Hamid Mir made an interesting comment while addressing the PM: “ Mr. Prime Minister you have given a statement of learning from the past on the picture of Dutch Philosopher Baruch Spinoza, ”.

The journalist asked the PM whether such liberalism could be afforded during his rule in the country.

Another Twitterati said: “@ImranKhanPTI is the intention of your tweet to describe yourself? You're doing the same thing which you're advising against. Your predecessors who betrayed Dr Aafia got trapped in court cases of their own. You promised to bring back Dr Aafia, but making no efforts in that regard,”.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has been in power for last more than three years but the promises he made before the general elections are still there to be fulfilled.
