LONDON: Imran Khan’s former wife, Jemima Goldsmith on Sunday shut down Ghinwa Bhutto for her ignorant comments on her family’s vacation.

Sharing a picture of Imran’s family on a holiday, Ghinwa wrote on Twitter, “Imran Khan’s family on a visit to the apartheid state of Israel. What does this mean to Pakistan?”


Reacting to this Jemima wrote, “This tweet is staggeringly ignorant and would be funny if it weren’t dangerous. The photo is taken on a family holiday in Mexico (not Israel) and we are wearing ponchos (not Jewish religious dress) Ghinwa Bhutto – shame on you.”

Soon after Jemima’s tweet, the widow of Mir Murtaza Bhutto (late) apologised to her writing, “Oh my god! that was Mexico? My apologies. How perceptions can easily blind people, even me. But please, please do not lecture me about shame.”

Ghinwa also received a lot of backlash from Twitter users for her comments.

Ghinwa Bhutto is the widow of Mir Murtaza Bhutto (late), son of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)’s founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.
