Ramiz Raja, the former Pakistan cricketer, recently had to face a lot of backlash on the social media platforms. The veteran uploaded a picture, claiming it to be a submerged area in Karachi. On Wednesday, July 28, he shared the photo on his official Twitter handle.

In the photo, a large area, surrounded by some tall buildings, was seen under water. Raja seemed unhappy with how things have panned out in Karachi over the time period. In the caption, he also took a dig at the Sindh government, comparing the area to ‘milk leaf tea’.

He captioned the picture and wrote, “The Sindh government has arranged milk leaf tea for the whole of Karachi.” However, soon after, the netizens pointed out that the image was a fake one.

Nevertheless, the netizens’ comments didn’t go down well with Raja by any stretch of the imagination. He dropped another tweet with the same picture, using a scathing message.

He replied and wrote. “I give a flying duck whether it’s a picture of Karachi or not. It summarises, encapsulates what’s been happening in that city, how Karachi is being royally fu#%^d. And some idiots are challenging that it’s a fake picture. Brain dead idiots!! Real traitors of the city and country.”

Here’s Raja’s second tweet

In the meantime, a Twitter user by the name of, Aliya Salahuddin, lashed out at Raja for using foul languages. As per her, Raja should have apologised for the mistake, being embarrassed.

“Traitors, idiots, flying duck, royally fu#%^d… this is the language that comes out of someone who should have humbly accepted that he made a mistake. Or just been embarrassed. I realise that this is the new normal now, but it’s so not okay,” the user wrote.

At the present point in time, Raja is one of the most popular commentators.
