Governor Sindh Imran Ismail deletes his Tweet after he misquoted national poet and philosopher Allama Iqbal on his 143rd birthday on Monday.
His post featured a verse embeded on an image however, it was not Allama Iqbal’s. Those were the lines of Syed Sadiq Hussain’s poetry.
The governor deleted the photo from his account after a number of people pointed out the mistake.
However, the screenshots of the post are still available over the internet:
But someone’s mistake in this digital age can not get a pardon that easily, speciay if the person is holding a high profile post.
Earlier in June, PM Imran Khan has commited a similar mistake but he apologised on social media after he was criticised by a number of people.
I stand corrected – this is not Allama Iqbal's poem but the message conveyed is what I have stood by and tried to follow and if our youth absorbs this message it will release their great God- given potential that all of us possess as His greatest creation Ashraf ul Mukhluqat. https://t.co/SvDVrakc5d— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) June 6, 2020
