Just a few months after the assassination of Pakistani journalist Arshad Sharif in Kenya, a vicious campaign has been launched against his wife, Javeria Siddique.
As some social media users made personal attacks on Javeria, who is a journalist by profession, Pakistani Twitter users came out in support of the slain journalist's wife and #StayStrongJaveriaBhabhi became the top trend on the micro blogging network.
Javeria herself shared an emotional tweet in response to the vicious campaign against her, saying her husband was killed with a bullet and she will be killed through character assassination.
میرے شوہر کو گولی سے مار دیا مجھے کردار کشی سے ماریں گے ۔— Javeria Siddique (@javerias) February 8, 2023
یا اللہ انصاف کر
ارشد تم تو کہتے تھے یہ مردوں کی جنگیں ہیں بات عورتوں تک نہیں آئے گی بیٹیاں بہنیں سانجھی ہوتی۔ ارشد اس ملک میں ایسا نہیں ہوتا دیکھو بیوگی میں بھی میرے سر سے چادر کھینچ رہے ہیں کیا یہ اسلامی ملک ہے ؟— Javeria Siddique (@javerias) February 8, 2023
Reacting to the vicious campaign against Javeria, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) called it "sad and condemnable" and "against the principles of Islam and humanity".
The HRCP tweeted on its official handle, "The negative campaign on Twitter about Miss @javerias is sad and condemnable. Such actions are against the principles of Islam and humanity. Miss Javeria & her family are already experiencing pain and suffering. We need to appease them. We pray for patience for them. JazakAllah!"

PTI leader Imran Ismail too condemned the propaganda against Arshad Sharif's family and blamed the PML-N social media cell for this dirty campaign. He said he would take legal action against those behind this malicious campaign.
