A recent tweet sent out by Pakistan Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir showed a distorted picture of Imran Khan apparently flirting with the wife of General Sir Nicholas Carter, who happens to be chief of the British Armed Forces.
The distorted picture tweet captioned “Worth a thousand words (or Blackberry messages)” sent out a wave of resentment in the PTI leadership based in the UK.
Outraged by the viral tweet, Sahibzada Jahangir who is a senior adviser to Imran Khan on foreign trade and investment from Europe conducted a press conference which was aired on a TV channel in the UK.
During the press conference, Sahibzada clarified that the picture that had gone viral was distorted. He also tweeted the original photo of the table where Sahibzada himself was seated between Imran Khan and General Sir Nicholas Carter. Standing behind were Sahibzada’s son and his two daughters-in-law.
Khurram Dastagir is the true picture. At back is my son & daughter in laws. Lady is General Sir Carter wife. Shame. pic.twitter.com/DK0vSA1oC7

He also revealed Sir Carter’s plan of visiting Pakistan along with a powerful military delegation to hold talks over the Afghanistan issue.
Sahibzada questioned Khurram Dastgir as to how he will face the British army general after bringing his wife into this fabricated episode.
The tweet was later deleted by Khurram Dastgir.
