After the American secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, hinted that Al-Qaeda leader, Amyn-al-Zawahiri might be hiding somewhere in Pakistan. Twitter, in an unexpected rage, was flooded with tweets opposing Hillary Clinton’s statements followed by the hashtag #ShutupClinton.

The trend reached number one in Pakistan and at the end of the day, many other countries including USA.

The American Secretary of state made these allegations during her visit to India, it is speculated that these statements are only made to please their ally India for the time being. According to some twitter users US wants to influence India’s relationship with Iran and persuade them to significantly cut their oil imports from Iran.

Others, however, defended her statements recalling the Osama Bin Laden incident and debating on Pakistan’s Intelligence failures.

All kinds of mixed emotions are being witnessed on Twitter for the past two days now.  Some saw the funny side of it, while others revealed some hardcore facts and realities.

Here are some of the top tweets on hashtag #ShutupClinton.
