Germany’s ambassador to Pakistan Martin Kobler is heart-throb of Pakistanis. The way he embraces Pakistani culture and gels with locals is just amazing. The diplomat’s Twitter account seems a representation of beautiful Pakistan, its people, and their lifestyle. But, it seems that activist Gul Bukhari famous for her bold stance in politics is not happy with Kobler’s liking for Pakistan. She asked the German ambassador to behave as a tourist and just called the wrath of Pakistanis
Gul Bukhari’s Objection On Martin Kobler
In one of his recent tweets, German ambassador shared the picture of his foxy that he got painted with Pakistan’s unique truck art. While many of the Pakistanis applauded the ambassador’s taste and his interest in indigenous culture, Gul Bukhari came up with an unpleasant comment.
I think you’re behaving like a tourist, not an ambassador. https://t.co/vX8pXuC7Wl

Here is how people criticised Bukhari
What do you want him to do? Comment on the politics of the host country?

They think she doesn’t like westerners praising Pakistan, its people, and the culture.
Gul is one of those people who are irritated by any westerner who accept Pakistan and Pakistanis instead of lobbying for turning the country and culture upside down to be remade in a different image

Those Applauding Kobler for His Ability to Think Out of the Box
He thinks outside the box @KoblerinPAK I think he’s doing what all Ambassadors should do. Embrace the country, find positive things & connect with the people. Hope he stays in Pakistan for a v long time

Ambassadors Connect the Cultures of Two Countries
Ambassadors in the past had embraced other countries cultures. So Mam you should think twice before tweeting something like that for it can hurt another persons sentiments. Have a nice day

German Ambassador’s Love for Pakistan
Martin Kobler seems to have a great affinity for Pakistan. The diplomat also gave his tips to bring the country out of water crisis and prompted people to save water. He has also visited the Northern areas of Pakistan and shared the pictures from his tour. The man is really doing a great job at spreading a positive image of Pakistan. In fact, he is doing his job by not limiting himself in the offices rather than mixing up with people and establishing a connection with them.
