It is noteworthy that it has yet to be decided if Shabnam will be removed from the post or not. the prime minister took the notice of matter when the controversy arose on the social media debate and the people were alleging the PTI government for nepotism.
On Saturday, the social media users started to comment Gul’s sister, Shabnam Gul, was appointed director of the NACTA for three years. this debate was become the controversial.
She was working as an assistant professor at the Lahore College for Women University and was sent to NACTA as a Grade-19 officer on deputation. It was reported that Zartaj Gul used her post to get her sister the appointment.
Defending the appointment, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry took his Twitter and said, “She is a PhD in terrorism and FATA and [was] selected after interviews”.
