Jemima Goldsmith appreciated the Pakistani cab driver in the UK for tackling the racist passenger with patience.
Yesterday, a video of a British man demeaning a Pakistani cab driver went viral on social media. The video gained the attention of social media users. Meanwhile, Pakistani cab received appreciation for exuding patience despite the racist comments of the passenger.
“Who do you think you are? You think you’re something special? Pakistan! But I’ll tell you what? No wonder the Indians are bombing you!”
Surely this drunken racist bigot has committed a crime and is liable for prosecution
If he isn’t then racism will never be cured because he has friends in very low places

The driver went on to search his bag as if looking for a change and responded calmly, “I don’t think about who I am. Have fun.”
However, the passenger continued with insulting comments in an abusive and threatening manner. “By the way, this is England! And you’re in a f****** job in England! So you should respect this country.”
But soon the driver informed the passenger that he has recorded his video and will soon upload it on Facebook. So that the world could hear what he said to him.
But the passenger continued, “You think I give a flying f***?” The driver then asked the passenger to leave his cab after returning him the change. Yet, while getting off his cab, the passenger again abused the passenger for belonging to a Muslim country.

However, another Twitter user shared the alleged comment of the cab driver. The alleged statement read that the cab driver named Abid Mustafa Satti has pardoned the racist British man. Adding that he does not want to pursue the case further against the passenger. Moreover, he thanked people for supporting him. He said the support from various communities is ‘more than enough’ for him.
Meanwhile, people appreciated Jemima Goldsmith for protesting against racism and appreciating Pakistani cab driver.
Jemima checks on her Pakistani friends
Jemima Goldsmith, the former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, checked on her Pakistani Twitter family in the latest message on Twitter.
She sent love and salam to people of Pakistan amid these troublesome times of pandemic coronavirus. She acknowledged that conditions are much harder for people in Pakistan than for people in the United Kingdom.
“I’m mindful that however hard this is for so many people here in the UK, conditions are so much harder for you in Pakistan,” she wrote. She ended her message of concern with “Sending love and salaams”.

Her Pakistani Twitter family reciprocated her loving message with warm wishes and appreciation.
Her loyalty to Pakistan
Despite her separation from Imran Khan, Jemima Goldsmith is loyal to Pakistan. She has expressed her love and concern for Pakistan on several occasions in her various social media messages.
An ex-wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Jemima, always wishes for the success of Imran Khan and the prosperity of Pakistan.
Jemima Goldsmith, the former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, extended support to Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, on her bombshell announcement to abdicate from senior royal duties.
She deduced Britain’s media scorn towards Meghan Markle and its extremely suspicious demeanor towards the female royal consort the prime reason for Meghan Markle’s debacle with the royal family. Perhaps Jemima could not forget her vilification by the Pakistani media.
Jemima said she is not sure if Britain’s media scorn towards Meghan Markle was driven by racism because she (herself) has mostly been the victim of anti-semitic and Islamophobia but duchess’ experience of vilification is relatable to her.
Perhaps, the entire episode of Meghan Markle’s rift with royal family perpetuated by British media evoked Jemima Goldsmith’s painful memories of contempt by Pakistani media and conservatives towards her for her ethnicity and religion, when she married Imran Khan- the famous cricketer of his time.
