Bushra Bibi, the wife of Pakistan’s new Prime Minister Imran Khan, stole the spotlight with her white niqab during the swearing-in-ceremony last week.
Photos of Bushra Bibi were circulated on social media networks with many describing her as “the bringer of joy for Pakistan.”
However, her burqa stirred controversy as some criticized her for choosing to wear it because it affects the image of Pakistani women in the world.
Twitter user Azfar replied to Sameera and said: “So what? She should take off her veil and drop some inches in her cleavage like yourself just to show the western world? How is that a representation of freedom and progressive society??”
