Moonis Elahi, Imran Riaz throw shade at each other on Twitter

The Twitter spat between Moonis Elahi and Imran Riaz Khan began after an interview of Moonis in which he claimed that his party had been advised by former COAS to support PTI.

It seems like there is no end to the Twitter feud between PML-Q leader Moonis Elahi and renowned TV anchor Imran Riaz Khan as both took shots at each other earlier.

Taking to Twitter, Moonis Elahi said he heard that someone’s visa got canceled due to that person having criminal ties. Moonis Elahi however, did not name anyone in his tweet.

Senior anchorperson Imran Riaz Khan responded by saying that asked Chaudhary Moonis Elahi to name him in his tweet after his visa was canceled. He also challenged Moonis Elahi to take the name of the people who canceled his visa.

“Take the name Moonis Elahi. My visa has been canceled and yes, develop the courage to take the name of those who caused it. Happy to stay in Pakistan,” Imran Riaz Khan said.

To this, Moonis Elahi responded by saying that the tweet was not meant for the journalist.

“Imran Sahab it wasn’t meant for you. Classic example of hawa main urta hua teer” Moonis Elahi said.

Later Imran Riaz Khan came down hard on Moonis Elahi and accused him of changing his statement by claiming that he was loyal all along.

To clarify, the Twitter spat between Moonis Elahi and Imran Riaz Khan began after an interview of Moonis in which he claimed that his party had been advised by former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa to support PTI in the no-confidence motion that ultimately led to former premier Imran Khan’s ouster.

“This is my point of contention with PTI and anyone who calls him [Gen Bajwa] a traitor,” Moonis had said, “he was seen as perfectly fine when he was going in their support and now he is called a turncoat”.
