Intro
Ahmadi’s have been harassing people since 1879, as MGA published the first volume of his Braheen series.  Kashif Chaudhry is the number 1 Ahmadi troll for the past 4-5 years.

The story

Cynthia D Ritchie is popular on social media for portraying Pakistan’s soft image. While many admire the fact that a foreigner—a woman at that too– cycles freely in an otherwise conservative society, there are others who have taken exception to her hard-hitting tweets at ‘pseudo-liberals’ and those who mock her.

Cynthia took to Twitter and slammed Yasir Latif Hamdani, a lawyer who wrote an opinion piece in The Daily Times against her. In his piece, Hamdani referred to Cynthia as a ‘shady operative’ who arrived in Pakistan and declared herself as resident expert on Islam by making a negative statement against Ahmadis.

The piece got Cynthia’s attention (not in a good way) and she took to task Hamdani (understandably) but also Raza Rumi, editor of The Daily Times.

I am now looking to hire an attorney for a defamation suit against @theRealYLH.

Hamdani, your lies will be your undoing. If you think I’m going to sit by while you & Daily Times et alia, spit venom, you’ve got another thing coming. CC: @StateDept @shehryar_taseer @Razarumi

There were some who took her threat lightly, prompting her to tweet this.

The controversy grabbed eyeballs on micro-blogging site Twitter with many siding with Cynthia and spawning the hashtag #ISupportCynthia. Cynthia’s name was subsequently removed from the opinion piece but she was still infuriated.

She ended up abusing Raza Rumi as well in a tweet (which she has now deleted).

“F**k you Raza Rumi, you t**t,” she wrote in a tweet and all bets were off.

Here’s why she did it though.

Yes, part of the irony is that I’d apologized to Rumi a day or two before, for sharing a picture of him with @theRealYLH & KashifMD (YLH & Kashif both cyber bullies). And then I find out he edits the heinous article about me, written by YLH who is no Pakistani Patriot. Upsetting. https://t.co/IsT87fVCh1

2/ me and others for months. I apologized to Raza, because I did not intend to show him (I don’t know him) as a cyberbully. My intent was to show YLH and Kashif are friends; & they both gang up on people to try and push their narratives. Both YLH & Kashif have shown themselves…

3/ to be vile creatures who write libelous materials, attempting to defame character, with lies.

So it hurt me, when I learned @Razarumi edited the write-up from YLH, defaming me. I received the original copy, with my name “shady operative” in it. And it was impression Raza…

The apology

A couple of hours later, Cynthia realized she had made a mistake by abusing Raza Rumi and in a mature way, apologized to him in a tweet.

Cynthia D. Ritchie

@CynthiaDRitchie

Agreed. Thank you. Sometimes my patience runs out. No excuse however, and apologies to @Razarumi for the abuse.

We should each do our best to set the example of civil discourse and respect for differences of opinion.

Peace. https://twitter.com/AtifMatinansari/status/1080154391313829888

Raza Rumi, who had demonstrated maturity by being silent all the time, finally responded to calm the Twitter storm. He appreciated Cynthia’s offer to reconcile over a cup of coffee sometime and in turn, informed Twitterati about his first day of the new year.

Raza Ahmad Rumi

@Razarumi

Dear @CynthiaDRitchie: thanks. V gracious. I didn’t respond earlier because when we are angry we tend to say things which we might regret. I appreciate your concerns and have asked colleagues to be more vigilant. Yes, coffee is appreciated. On me.

My first day of 2019 was not that joyful. Full of online abuse and hate. But I thank all the friends and well-wishers who defended me & gave me strength. I don’t wish to prolong Twitter duels. Just want a peaceful evening in real time with friends I haven’t seen in years.

Enters the idiot

Farhan Virk, a social media celebrity (of sorts) in Pakistan known for operating various fake accounts, trolling the PTI’s opponents and harbouring jingoistic opinions, saw fit to involve himself in the dispute. He claimed that Cynthia had no right to abuse Raza Rumi as he had gotten shot for his views against the Taliban.

Not only that, he recorded a ridiculous video in which he urged Pakistanis to dissociate themselves from Cynthia as ‘We (Pakistanis) despite our difference of opinion with each other, should not allow a foreigner to abuse one of us.”

Hain? Why, Virk, why?

Cynthia responds to the troll by telling him to make a sandwich

Cynthia D. Ritchie

@CynthiaDRitchie

Virk beta, my apology to Raza came for using language I normally don’t and shouldn’t use.

You and your ‘buddy’ had nothing to do with it, so please, go make a sandwich. Your blood sugar is low.

She proceeded to say she didn’t even know who Virk was. Ouch.

Cynthia D. Ritchie

@CynthiaDRitchie

Frankly, I don’t know who Virk is. I didn’t know there was a ‘spat’. I just told him to “make a sandwich”, since he was poking his nose into my affairs (which stemmed from bad editing & YLH slandering me in @Dailytimes).

Just realized I am sounding more Pakistani every day. 😃

The troll apologizes

It was then that Farhan Virk came across ‘thousands of documentaries’ that Cynthia had done to highlight and promote the positive side of Pakistan and apologized to her in a tweet. He took his words back and deleted all his tweets against her. Sigh.

Dr Farhan K Virk@FarhanKVirk

I have made quite a research on your work inside Pak @CynthiaDRitchie I have noticed that you have made thousands of documentaries and millions of UK and US citizens have watched them. I am sorry. I will explain my apology in a vlog today 🙏🙏 I never knew you contributed so much

So, that was all. And Cynthia went back to celebrating the new year.

Cynthia D. Ritchie

@CynthiaDRitchie

Yes, – let’s start this new year right.

No one likes to be falsely/wrongly accused of anything, be it individual or state level, by intent or mistake. Prefer conversation over conflict any day.

Peace to you and yours.

The only good thing to come out of the Twitter spat—hilarious tweets

Stray observations—why does Cynthia love to tag the State Department in her every tweet? Why did she say ‘You all are fuc***g with the wrong b**ch?

Well, as usual, Twitter doesn’t let such things slide. And it didn’t.
