President Alvi Deletes Tweet After Social Media Backlash on Playing a ‘Silly Game’

President Dr. Arif Alvi seems to be a fan of Wordle – a new free online word puzzle that has taken social media by storm.

The Head of the State posted his Wordle score on Twitter on Thursday morning. However, he took it down after severe backlash on social media.

The tweet came hours after terrorists attacked two Frontier Corps (FC) camps in Naushki and Panjgur late on Wednesday.

“Terrorists had attempted to attack security forces’ camps in Balochistan’s Panjgur and Naushki in two separate attacks late on Wednesday evening. The attacks have been successfully repulsed while dealing heavy damage to the terrorists. However, one soldier was martyred in the Panjgur incident,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.

People questioned the timing of President Alvi’s tweet and criticized him for spending his time on an online game instead of attending to the country’s pressing matters.

Journalist Talat Hussain criticized the President for playing a “silly game” while the country faced security and economic threats.

“He has nothing to say even on the ongoing Balochistan terrorism events,” he tweeted.

Another user commented, “When Rome was burning, Nero was playing the flute. When Balaouchistan [Balochistan] was burning, Alvi was playing Wordle.”

A user asked if the President had any idea about the situation in Balochistan.
