Martin Kobler has finally locked the door to his residence in Islamabad and by now, he will be on his way back to Berlin. The German Ambassador has left with some great memories and all Pakistanis are head over heels in love with him for what he did for our country.
Last tweet! Door to residence locked, my friend and deputy Jens dropped me at airport. Last selfie with kind follower. Thank you people of #Pakistan for the wonderful 2 yrs in ur beautiful country! Happy to come back to travel. #Pakistan will always keep a firm place in my heart! pic.twitter.com/9yR74SO3F0

While questioning someone who’s doing something positive is questionable in itself, it is worse if the person doing it doesn’t have any respect. Often termed as a traitor to Pakistan, Hussain Haqqani, did just that in an attempt to malign someone just because he himself couldn’t ever earn that respect.
Pakistan’s former Ambassador to the United States took a dig at the German Ambassador for ignoring issues of human rights violations, war and peace, and economics.
Thank you @KoblerinPAK for yr devotion to Pakistani food, clothes, & pottery during your tenure as Germany’s ambassador in Islamabad. Hopefully, your successor will also pay attention to issues of war & peace, human rights violations, & economics that you ignored. @GermanyDiplo

According to Haqqani’s tweet, Martin Kobler did nothing but promote Pakistan’s pottery, food, and clothes.
The famous activist and writer, Cynthia D. Richie had a befitting response for Haqqani’s blatant comments.
Ambassador Kobler chose to explore a country & learn about its people in ways that you, HH, never did & could never appreciate, because naturally traitors aren't sympathetic to their country of origin.
Some of us are not driven by cash, trading secrets or manufacturing crises. https://t.co/bzoeTLyREQ

She said that Kobler did much more than just promoting Pakistan’s culture.
Ambassador Kobler chose to explore a country & learn about its people in ways that you, HH, never did & could never appreciate, because naturally, traitors aren’t sympathetic to their country of origin.
Cynthia further took a jab at former Ambassador for trading secrets for money.
Haqqani’s comments backfired quickly as he had to face a lot of criticism on social media.
He knows his job better than you because he is a career diplomat! he is not like you who licked feet of his political masters to get elevated and betrayed them,even, after finding the new master

How cute a desi Gora lecturing a German ambassador,
There must be a vigorous vetting process before these diplomats are appointed to different countries,not like yourself who get to these positions after becoming a Darbari of a certain clan.

Well said, your excellency.
I think it would be even better if you share instaces of all those times where you paid attention to NRA control of the US congress & highlighted the threats posed by not enforcing gun control during your time as our Amb to DC. Drive the point home plz

Even his admirers didn’t like the reply.
زندگی میں پہلی بار آپ مجھے برے لگے ہو, میں ہر جگہ آپ کو ڈیفنڈ کرتا آرہا ہوں
لیکن آپ جیسا نیگیٹیو شخص دیکھا ہی نہیں تھا
میں یہ سوال لوگوں پر چھوڑتا ہوں,کہ مسٹر کوبلر اور آپ میں سے کس نے پاکستان کا نام روشن کیا؟
Mr @KoblerinPAK I would like to apologize for this man
He is not us.
