Twitter Wars: Sara Taseer VS Fatima Bhutto

Published: August 6, 2010
Email

Sara Taseer takes on Fatima Bhutto for ruining Pakistan's public image.

For those who missed it, Sara Taseer Shoaib (daughter of Governor Punjab, Salman Taseer) let loose a string of Twitter updates slamming Fatima Bhutto for her ‘lack of loyalty’ to Pakistan following the young Bhutto’s appearance on BBC World (and a recent article slamming the current government and President Zardari in particular).

If you thought Governor Taseer had a way with words, Ms Taseer’s point-blank accusations make the Governor’s pokes at Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif look almost tame. Cited case(s) in point:

Sara Taseer’s tweets

Fatima Bhutto on bbc world, abusing Pak again

@fbhutto do you have any loyalty to Pakistan. Is there any forum on which you have not ripped Pakistan to shreds.

@tazeen She @fbhutto is so venomously eloquent. A wolf in sheeps clothing.

As a Pakistani living abroad, i’m always struggling to promote it and then a @fbhutto type traitor shows up.

While I do not like the way Sara Taseer has worded her opinion, I must add: ever since Songs of Blood and Sword came out, Fatima Bhutto just doesn’t cut it for me anymore. As a self-proclaimed journalist, I trust her even less, as her one-point agenda starts to grate on the mind. Take her tweets from this same day:

Fatima Bhutto’s tweets

Protests as Zardari rolls into London -great placards. Have you seen them?

Wow. Just when you thought the guy couldn’t get any worse he takes a French Air Force helicopter to go to his chateau as floods rage.

Really, Fatima? You know its a bad day when you have to cite The News as a source to prove your point (especially when you don’t have one). You telling me you didn’t go to Harrods this week?

    Seriously, what purpose has this blog served anyway?Recommend

  • Jalal

    Who is Sara Taseer to point fingers? Also, you left out her more abusive tweets (which she later deleted) which included her cursing Fatima Bhutto in Punjabi.

    How does criticizing the President’s vacation across Europe during a time of emergency make one a traitor? Is this not a democracy? Do we not want freedom of speech?

    Zardari has a responsibility and should have more empathy towards the people that are drowning, starving, homeless and prone to all sorts of diseases. Fatima is NOT the President of Pakistan, she can go to Harrods all she wants.

    Ps. It’s kind of tacky that the Tribune would publish a post which insults another Pakistani newspaper. Improve yourself instead of bringing others down.Recommend

  • Umair

    LOL at Harrods! B its just for fun relaxx…I want to join twitter!Recommend

  • Neeli

    Completely disagree with Sara Taseer. Blind allegiance to the PPP and the Bhutto-Zardaris does not a patriot make. While Fatima does have a personal vendetta against Zardari, lets be clear, the majority of Pakistani’s share her distrust and hatred for Zardari. We all feel sick to our stomachs seeing our President visiting his mansion in France while nearly 3 million people are affected. If Fatima Bhutto is a traitor, then so are the rest of us.Recommend

    I think all Pakistani’s have the right to attack our President whose least concerned with the floods and killings taking place in Karachi. I think Sara Tasser should read SOBAS and then make a judgment on Fatima Bhutto. Recommend

  • Larkana

    Fatima definately took the high road in this battle on twitter (by ignoring Sara Taseer). I’d like to point out that Fatima never “ripped Pakistan to shreds” she only mentioned the truth about Zardari. Guess Sara Taseer has reason to be loyal while her family enjoys the perks of the Governor house she keeps mentioning in her tweets.Recommend

  • Salman M

    Is it now considered unpatriotic to question the President’s tours abroad while the country drowns and burns? It is the blinded allegiance to the party in power that Sara Taseer displays which is much more dangerous. Given the country’s current state, most Pakistani’s continue to ask where the leaders that are suppose to be governing the country are? Sara Taseer’s comments remind me of the time the republicans in the US used to call anyone criticizing their war policies as “unpatriotic”. We need more Fatima Bhutto’s in the country, making more noise. Recommend

  • Tippu

    Hahahahhaha. Sara Taseer sees nothing wrong with zardari’s pleasure trip to paris and london while the country drowns??? I bet next she will defend Nero for playing the fiddle and entertaining rome! What a loser. GO jump in a lake sara taseer!!Recommend

    I don’t see any problem with Fatima Bhutto’s tweets or interviews. You can’t go around and fool the world on International forums about the reality of Pakistan. It is way better to understand and realize your own shortcomings before the others point them out for you.

    If Fatima writes against Zardari – for certain personal reasons – then so does several other journalists write against him for impersonal reasons.

    This blog looks more like a half-baked tabloid story!Recommend

  • Karishma

    And this bit is supposed to actually be worthy of finding space in the etribune? Fatima in no way ripped Pakistan apart, she was only highlighting the ugly truth of Zardari, which everyone is aware of.

    As for Sara Taseer we all know what her claim to fame has been! Apart from being the daughter to the governor of Punjab (and getting perks because of it)copying designs of an Indian artist in no way qualifies her as the good brand ambassador of Pakistan. At least Fatima did not stoop to Sara’s level of name calling. Actually Sara Taseer has none, point proven by her recent outbursts on Twitter against @fbhutto.Recommend

    This is blogging at its worst & I am shocked that Tribune published it. For one thing it is high time that people stop writing complete articles based just on tweets, I am sure any serious writer can find enough issues other than these to write about. We have more than our share of things going around.

    Sara Taseer wants to promote Pakistan, why not ask the powers to be with whom she is in close contact to stop ruining it, then she won’t have to create a fake image of our country we’ll be able to settle the things in a much better way. And I mean seriously, is Ms Taseer even in a remote position to point fingers?

    When Altaf Hussain said that the President should not be visiting London people defended him against his critics saying that Altaf is not holding any public office hence he can live where ever he wants, so how come the write compare Fatima’s visit to London with that of the President’s?Recommend

Recommend

  • Nada

    Seriously, I can’t believe somebody even bothered to write this blog post or worse-agree with Sara Taseer! I don’t get how writing the truth or actually coming out with it makes one a traitor..I assume Ms.Sara Taseer believes its better to sweep things under the rug, after all it’s convenient for her that way isn’t it? I’m enraged by her casual use of words like ‘loyalty’..seriously? Because you apparently ‘promote’ Pakistan by really not talking about any of what’s going on, you’re loyal? Ahan..It’s about time we stopped thinking that the people of this nation are idiots-we’re smarter than the government (ehem, you listening Mr.Taseer?) thinks we are..so stop.seriously.Stop. Acknowledgement of issues is the first step towards any change but of course we all know trying to change the wonderfully convenient ‘status-quo’ will make us unpatriotic in Ms. Sara Taseer’s eyes.Recommend

  • Ahmed

    Ms. Taseer is trying to defend her father’s ruthless attitude towards poor people of Punjab.

    Zardari is just counting days before he is thrown out either by people (a bloody revolution i believe) or the Army (yes, General Kyani, because every time the political government gives a favour to army officer, the same officer throws that govt out, sadly).

    Zardari went to chateau just to make sure that his exile days will be peaceful. Recommend

  • http://publicmb.wordpress.com MB

    Two typical burgers of PAK wasting everyone’s time in WHO-ARE-YOU vs WHO-AM-I nonsense. None of them are any good to PAK. While SALMAN’s role as “Establishment”s man is well known, we all know F.Bhutto is nothing better than just few english words in print.

    The typical of PAK elites, with useless ambitions and directions less hopes, with no track record of any real practical work for the masses. Look at the way Zardari is “MARKETING” his son and daughters in his meeting with WESTERN powers.

    These elites keep marketing their sons and daughters for some future prospects and these two ladies have no better work to do then twitting from centrally AC rooms. Recommend

    I really don’t see the relevance of this blog. Slamming the government doesn’t necessarily mean that one isn’t patriotic to the country and we don’t accept it with its warts and all. Try paying your taxes and then watch your country perish when there is minimal action being taken. Recommend

    I Think Taseer’s family has the obsession to prove themsleves loyal of Zardari. Like her father, Sara also talks non-sense and wants to prove that she is some one in the political elites which is not the case. Fatima’s family and personal credentials mare uch more high than the Taseers.

    Sara accused Fatima of being anti-Pakistan but she looks anti-Zardari and not anti-Pakistani. She talks and writes about the bad governance of the present government and not gainst the State. She had travelled around the country and had visited farflung areas of Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa and Sindh and had written about the pathetic condition of the victims of natural calamities. Sara and her father cannot even get out of their airconditioned rooms to visit the current flood affected areas even in Punjab.Recommend

    Its so heartening to see so many Pakistanis rise to the occasion when it came to criticizing someone who tried to defend the country or the President. So wonderful to see patriots who can’t wait to blog and exercise their “freedom of speech”. because that is what will fix this country. Lets just keep changing governments and leaders because that is the panacea to all our problems. Why dont we GET it?? Why do we feel that we have done our patriotic duty by lamenting about the President being at his Paris mansion while Pakistan drowned – I bet at least half of the people waxing poetic on this blog have not loosened their purse strings to help those who have lost it all in this terrible tragedy of nature. But to bitch about Sara Taseer – lets go baby – this is what we’re real good at!! Oh, and yes, lets defend that – Fatima Bhutto – who’s on a power trip herself!!!Recommend

  • Dina

    Let me guess..”Sam” is either Sara Taseer herself or a member of her family. All she tweets/says is purely for attention purposes. Once she is done ripping apart one person who doesn’t share her deluded opinion, she is on to the next. I wonder why there is so much pent up aggression and anger? For someone with such a cushy life, you would think she would be a much happier human being.

    There may be another ‘lass’ other than Fatima Bhutto who needs a ‘leash and a muzzle,’ per Sara’s own recommendation. Recommend

  • Ghausia

    This blog is much better than your previous attempts, but again, your subjectivity kind of ruined it a little bit. Fatima Bhutto can go to Harrod’s as much as she wants because she isn’t the president. Not to mention, are you aware of the state of Pakistan at the moment? Have you been keeping up with the news at all? And thirdly, you really need to lose this habit you have of slamming people in your articles, its extremely unethical. First is OBA, now The News, come on, that’s not a very professional approach is it? Blogs can be subjective, but you kind of push the limit. Criticism aside, this article didn’t make me cringe, so kudos to you. Still lacks relevancy though.Recommend

  • Umair Hassan

    I don’t get it. What exactly Miss Nadya is trying to say here? Miss Nadya has clearly lost her sanity. Oh and giving freedom of speech is one thing but allowing someone to write an article that makes no sense is ridiculous.

    If our beloved President takes a French Air Force helicopter to go to his chateau, then we really should start to think about what we’ve done instead of pointing fingers at those who are working hard to make us realize how stupid we are to have an international thief as our President.Recommend

Bhutto’s always straight forward no matter if they are in danger but they always represent the people of Pkistan but Zardari’s oh my God just ask to a single common person of Pkistan about him shame and recently Birmingham incident is enough for him shoes threw on him by an old Pakistani.

    Who in Pakistan or in the world knows anything about Sara Taseer? Hardly any.
    Trying to compare Sara Taseer & Fatima Bhutto is like comparing a road-side tramp with a Astro Martin driving CEO of a company. Honestly, what in the world did you ever think when you tried to blog about this amazingly impossible comparison? Bet, you were paid!
    Fatima Bhutto didn’t even respond to a single tweet of the ranting Taseer. She maintained her standards and didn’t get low to the wanna-be expat!

    I am not at all interested in watching two women fight and then be further pitted against each other by media. Every one of these women has been significantly hurt by politics, they lost their parents, and I have no doubt that they both care for Pakistan. They are each allowed to have their opinion and we need to create a free Pakistan where we can have such open debates to improve the country. No one is all bad or all good, we are all a bit of both, everyone is allowed to make mistakes, and I can tell you that I for one am impressed at these women, for their courage and for being who they are, both very brave, despite the posionous and poverty culture in Pakistan. I support anyone who steps up and stands up coming from the filth that Pakistan is producing. Ours is not a culture to produce great minds, thinkers, leaders, etc. So when a few do rise above, especially when they are women in such a patriarchal culture, we should back them up, we should have faith, we should encourage them, we should have open (but respectful) debates with them so we can all be better. We should know that no leader in the world has ever been perfect, so why do we expect a perfect leader will come out of poor, uneducated, corrupt and confused Pakistani culture?Recommend

  • Mila

    We really need to back our leaders. We really need to support all women who are making an attempt to be leaders and help the country. No one is or ever will be perfect. I support anyone trying to make a positive contribution, no matter how small or how big.

Never saw them active out in streets of Pakistan, helping people out or even stood up for them. Keep your cat fight to yourself as Pakistan has nothing to do with it. You may say our families sacrifices for Pakistan and I say they lost it in the line of selfishness and their personal agendas because when they were rulers as a common citizen of Pakistan I never had no benefit neither had Right to Practice my rights. So take your dirty little politics to else where and DO NOT involve Pakistan within. Follow whatever white man says and stay in white man land coz that is where coconuts belongs.

Remind me, which one is the most read newspaper in Pakistan? Hey Nadya! I think there’s a fashion show for cats going on that would suit your level of “journalistic skills” a bit better…Recommend

    Fatima Bhutto is not important; why even bother talking about her. She does not matter here in Pakistan. And yes, if you do look at her interviews to foreign channels, she does exactly what she is not supposed to and that is defame Pakistan. But then again you can’t blame her, she’s still confused about who martyred her father, her mother tells her it was Zardari, but history tells us it was the establishment without any doubt.Recommend

    This article/posting is apparently very suspicious and tended in nature.

    Although I have not studied journalism or mass communication , I also personally believe that it lacks the fundamental objectivity and NEUTRAL journalistic content.

    As a result I have been inclined to believe that the intentions or opinions of Nadya V. ( the one who wrote it ) are biased.

    And it is very surprising how THE EXPRESS TRIBUNE expects to have a maintained news reputation while allowing such postings.Recommend

    Then I will appreciate I Ms. Taseer closes her expensive jewellery shop and open a NGO for Pakistani children who have no access to food and health! Recommend

    What an utterly useless blog. Sara Taseer? And you really think that if Fatima Bhutto hadn’t given that speech that people would have some other opinion about Pakistan? The entire world sees us as an utterly corrupt nation regardless of her speech. Recommend

    Since when did illiteracy and pointlessness become the criteria for publication? Oh wait, since ages. Nadya V, try doing something else, anything else.Recommend
