Miftah Ismail Slams Maria B On Transphobic Remarks During Twitter Q&A
Miftah Ismail, the former Federal Minister for Finance and Revenue, took to twitter to ask the people of Pakistan to send in their questions regarding the economy and reimagining Pakistan. And he had some valuable bits to share. Miftah Ismail's dig at Maria B is being talked about on Twitter.


Miftah Ismail addressed some questions such as what would the consequences be if Pakistan did not go to the IMF.


When it came to the question of Pakistan going to default, Miftah seemed hopeful... if things worked out.


But he didn't just answer questions about the economy. He also spoke on the issue of intolerance and hatred. In response to a question by Farhat Shirin, Miftah Ismail slammed Maria B, saying there clearly was a need to self-reflect 'when fashion designers hate on transgender people and people destroy minority places of worship.'

Miftah Ismail is one of the key figures of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), a leading politician and an economic wizard of the country who knows his job and has never shied away from calling a spade a spade. He is a true democrat and patriot for whom the national interest comes first. He served as Federal Minister of Finance from April 19, 2022 to September 27 last year when the country’s economy was in shambles. Miftah burned the midnight oil and left no stone unturned in fixing the economy and did a good job by putting the economy on the right track.

He was interviewed by Hassan Naqvi for The Friday Times recently and seemed hopeful about the conclusion of IMF deal.

"The quick response of the IMF means that they absolutely want to work with us and that the IMF will protect us. The IMF is the best insurance we have against default. So I think that if the IMF agreement is made, then God willing, it will be good."

He confirmed that the 'IMF was not willing to come to the table unless we let go of the currency, meaning we let market forces decide the rate. Now that we have done that, they are here to talk as well.'
