Pakistani Senator Rehman Malik has found himself at the epicentre of a troll-fest after a major goof-up, believing that Lebanon-born former pornstar Mia Khalifa had extended her solidarity to Indian Muslims against a new citizenship law.
Responding to a fake Twitter post, Malik blessed the hijab-wearing pornstars in the picture for their support.
In another tweet, Malik also said Pakistan would succeed in making India rollback the controversial law as it is against the UN charter.
“Will get them – it is agst UN Charter also", said Malik in another tweet.
Apparently, Senator Malik thinks he will get Indian govt with the help of pornstars. Chalo, there's still hope there.. pic.twitter.com/MKlTvAzlU1— Naila Inayat नायला इनायत (@nailainayat) December 30, 2019
Later in his clarification, he said the pornstars and sex workers voted for India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and they were more than respectable because they oppose discrimination against Muslims.
These porn girls including other Indian sex workers have also voted PM Modi then will u troll Modi having been voted by porn & sex workers .— Senator Rehman Malik (@SenRehmanMalik) December 30, 2019

The screenshots of Malik's now-deleted post are going viral on social media with Twitter users hilariously trolling him for his gaffe.

Their senators bless Mia khalifa, their diplomats wishes for well being of Johnny sins
The goof-up made several remember an earlier gaffe by ex-Pakistani envoy to India Abdul Basit, who mistook pornstar Johnny Sins to be a pallet gun wounded Kashmiri man.
Ex Pak High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit twitted image of porn movie star @JohnnySins & claiming he is Yousuf from Anantnag,J&K who got blind by a pellet injury.@abasitpak1,like Pak Army Your bullets are also hitting 2 feet above the actual target.— Major Surendra Poonia (@MajorPoonia) September 2, 2019

What’s with Pakistani politicians/diplomats and pornstars? First Abdul Basit and Johnny Sins, now Rehman Malik. Shah Mehmood Qureshi will jointly address the UN with Lana Rhoades next? https://t.co/9tyw5CjZUL pic.twitter.com/pkchtxjfPL— Abhijit Majumder (@abhijitmajumder) December 30, 2019
In India, the enactment of the law has triggered widespread protests across the country, in some cases violent, resulting in the death of about 25 people during clashes with security personnel.
The new Citizenship (Amendment) Act enacted early in December grants Indian nationality to persecuted Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and Parsis from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, who entered India illegally before 2015.
The law, however, does not grant citizenship to Muslims from these three neighbouring countries, something which protesters and several opposition parties in the country see as violation of the Constitution.
