Last week, we saw the whole drama behind Maria B and her husband crying foul of getting mistreatment. According to Maria, elites should be treated with respect and consideration. Even though they should be responsible for their actions, Maria said that the government was the one to blame for taking her husband away.
How should we put it though, typical victim mentality?
After ‘deliberately’ sending off their cook to his village when he tested positive for coronavirus, Maria B and her husband came out with two viral videos.
To sum it all up, what happened was that Maria B’s cook tested positive for COVID-19 virus a few days ago. The husband and wife duo sent him to his village, instead of keeping him in self-isolation. This of course is a life-threatening situation, as the carrier could infect a whole village of hundreds of people.
On the charges of concealment, her husband Tahir Saeed was arrested and that’s when the whole drama began.
First, Maria B shared a video on social media, requesting the Prime Minister to look into the matter.

And then, after the release of Tahir Saeed, she made another video with her husband. The two thanked the government for listening to their plea and at the same time criticized them for their negligence.
Imran Khan’s Response to This Fiasco
But it turns out that the government didn’t even know what the fuss was all about. In a recent media interaction, a journalist asked Prime Minister Khan to share his views on the whole bizarre case.
‘Why Tahir Saeed was released even though he sent his employee via public transport?’
To his dismay, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he neither had any idea about the case nor had anyone reached out to him about the matter.
Speaking about the public reaction, Imran Khan further added that the people of Pakistan will gradually understand the situation.
“This is a new thing in Pakistan. People have no idea how to deal with corona because it’s not widespread in Pakistan yet. In Italy, people know about the precautions because they’re seeing their people die every day. Here there have been eight deaths in two weeks so people aren’t serious enough yet. Although, you’re right about the negligence. It is our job and I will keep trying to inform people about this.”
