ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA-elected Aamir Liaquat Hussain has apologised over his sexist remarks.
He took to twitter on Wednesday and apologized to Senator Sherry Rehman over his sexist tweet.
Aamir Liaquat, in his tweet, said, “I have respect for you (Sherry Rehman) because of the issues you raised in NA when I was there too. It is just a misunderstanding; I was targeting MMA Owais Norani, not you.”
He further said, “Twitter didn’t delete my tweet, I deleted it myself, because I later realized it might look bad for you.”
Earlier, Sherry Rehman, the position leader in the Senate in response to Aamir Liaquat’s abusive had said, “For all tastelesstweeters who post salaciously cropped photos or make inappropriate remarks about women in politics, I feel your pain when u are asked to delete.
