Mahira Khan & Mehwish Hayat fight against Abusive Language and Slurs

Mehwish Hayat and Mahira Khan were recently slammed for allegedly supporting former General Pervez Musharraf. But the actresses ferociously hit back at detractors who maligned them with libelous comments.

Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan, dissed a Twitter follower who vilified her yesterday in response to her tweet. Though the context of her tweet was obscure the actress seems to have purportedly expressed remorse on the inflammatory para 66 in the detailed judgment of Supreme Court in former General Pervez Musharraf’s treason case.

Mahira Khan had tweeted she wish Allah’s justice should be visible to the world. But a disgruntled Twitter user meddled her Twitter post with a scornful comment, maligned her with objectionable slurs.

Khan did not hold back and ferociously shot back at her.

Khan censured the troll, asserted that her comments exude her murky mindset. Adding that she might have funded her education but she does not want to squander her hard-earned money on her.

Mahira Khan is the latest Pakistani celebrity to be slammed following Mehwish Hayat after the court’s verdict in Pervez Musharraf’s treason case.

Meanwhile, para 66 of the detailed judgment strictly instructed law enforcement agencies to bring back ‘fugitive’ Pervez Musharraf, and, if found dead his corpse be dragged to D-Chowk and hanged for three days. The explosive statements have fired up Pakistan’s social media since yesterday.

Cyril Almeida’s spat with Mehwish Hayat

Earlier, Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat gave a savage response on Dawn’s formal columnist, Cyril Almeida’s tweet denigrating her following the Supreme Court’s verdict in General Pervez Musharraf’s treason case.

Almeida took a dig at actress Mehwish Hayat on the day when SC announced a death penalty for Pervez Musharraf in the treason case. Almeida wrote in his tweet about Mehwish Hayat’s possible perturbation and response to the verdict. Since a few days before the verdict, she had vouched for a fair trial for General Pervez Musharraf in one of her Twitter posts.


Hayat’s tweet had come in response to General Musharraf’s video message stating that he is asked for an exclusive commission to visit him in Dubai to record his statements in the treason case since he is severely ill and cannot travel to Pakistan to defend his case.

Hence, when the verdict was out, Cyril Almeida wrote: Right. Now to the important business, what does Mehwish Hayat think of the verdict?


A female Twitter defended Mehwish Hayat and hit back at Cyril Almeida for an unwarranted trolling.

The Twitter user wrote: “At least she had the balls to give an unpopular opinion; your silence on the other hand after Hameed Haroon’s name was linked to the Jami sexual assault case was defeating!”. Another Twitter user made a sharp comment against her that prompted the actress to intervene with a ferocious response to her detractors including, former columnist Cyril Almeida.

Hayat had protested against the judgment. She tweeted Irish solider, Thomas Francis Meagher’s quotations. “A very famous Irish Soldier, Thomas Francis Meagher said… “The treason of which I stand convicted loses all its guilt, has been sanctified as a duty, and will be ennobled as a sacrifice,” wrote Mehwish Hayat in a Twitter post the day SC released the verdict on 17th December.

This is not the first time, Cyril Almedia has been dissed by a Pakistani actress. Earlier, he goaded Mahira Khan, with a useless question on Pakistani politics, during her interactive session with her fans on Twitter. Perhaps Mahira ignored the former journalist.
