Shafqat Mahmood breaks the hearts of students
Following the announcement, Twitteratis responded with what they do best: hilarious memes. Students are saying that Shafqat Mahmood has ‘broken their hearts’.
For those unaware, the Federal Minister has a strong fan base among the students. Earlier in November 2020, they deemed him as their hero when he announced closing down educational institutes.
The minister said that the health and safety of young students is the first priority for the government, and thus, they had decided to close educational institutes. All examinations were postponed, except for a few specialized exams which took place as usual.
However now, students are a little disappointed with this ‘betrayal’. Check out some hilarious reactions here:
