Yesterday, following the verdict of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Tallal Chaudhary’s name was added to the growing list of PML-N members who have been disqualified from holding public offices in recent months. He has been barred for five years from contesting elections and slapped with a fine of five hundred thousand rupees on account of contempt of court.
The verdict was not in the least surprising and many had expected the fiery politician to be disqualified long, long before the proclamation was made.
However, for whatever reason, former Minister for Information and Chaudhary’s fellow party member, Maryam Aurangzeb was perhaps the only Pakistani who was expecting a verdict diametrically opposite to the one that was announced.
The shock on her face upon hearing about Chaudhary’s disqualification by the Supreme Court was so earnest that for the last 24 hours Pakistan cannot get over her priceless reaction!
Aurangzeb’s reaction has since captured the imagination of meme makers who are offering their own interpretations to her bewildered expression.

Twitterati had a common theme going when deciphering the former Minister’s thoughts during those fateful moments captured on camera.

The last seven days saw a flood of memes featuring Jahangir Tareen and his infamous chase of the independents and it seems, Maryam Aurangzeb and her hilarious expression will dominate our mini-feeds for at least the next few days.

That said, while we are thoroughly enjoying the hilarious take on Maryam Aurangzeb (and Jahangir Tareen before her), here’s a reminder to be respectful in your humour and political disagreements.
So, whether you’re a PTI voter or your loyalties lie with PML-N, please make sure that your jibes do not step into the territory of sexism and profanity.
Other than that, you have our blessings! Let the one-liners roll!
