PM says ‘injection made nurses look like hoors’

Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that nurses at Shaukat Khanum Hospital, who looked after him after he fell from the stage in 2013 during an election rally, looked like hoors (virgins) following painkillers.

“I was in deep pain due to injuries after I fell from the stage. The injection by Shaukat Khanum Hospital not only removed the pain but enabled me to make a speech as well. The nurses who made my pain go away looked like hoors at that time,” Imran can be heard as saying in a video making rounds on the internet.

It merits mention here that such painkillers often induce hallucinations.

Imran also said he repeatedly asked the doctor to give him more of that painkiller injection but he the doctor refused. At one point the premier recalled threatening the doctor to do his bidding but he did not allow another injection.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan had in May 2013 sustained serious injuries on his head and back after falling from a lifter while climbing up the stage installed for an election rally in Lahore.

The remarks did not go down well with Twitter.

In a tweet, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) lawmaker Nafisa Shah said: “It is offensive and unbecoming of a prime minister of a country to refer to nurses who were treating him as objects of heavenly desire. His statement is highly controversial and mocks the dignified profession of nursing generally.”

A journalist, Arshad Sharif, shared the video of these remarks and said: “Which injection makes nurses look like “Hoors” to ? Is PM sending a message that Nurses are objects of sexual desire? The noble profession of “Sisters” who follow the tradition of to treat sick & wounded rebranded as “Hoors” by ‘s PM?”
