BANGALORE, INDIA: Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar wouldn't have expected a better reception, before she visited India.

But mostly thanks to her attractive appearance, fine dressing style and fashion sense rather than her statements and official visits, she continues to catch the attention of the nation.

As soon as she arrived here, she did create a stir by opting to meet Kashmiri separatist leaders Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Ali Geelani in New Delhi on Tuesday evening. It being a day before she met Indian Foreign Ministry officials surprised many.

Then, of course, there was the Roberto Cavalli shades and a Birkin bag, which made the South Sea Pearls around Khar's neck an understatement.

If what is going on in Twitter is any indication, she seems to have attracted enough eyeballs, which are ready to follow her each and every move.

Right from plain, ridiculous ones to funny expressions to history to downright outrageous, there are countless tweets from thousands of Khar's followers and others.

If one was, “HinaRabbaniKhar is Pak's foreign minister. We need to respond to tht in a strong way. I say we appoint Emraan Hashmi as ours.” (sic), another one took a dig at Rahul Gandhi, stating that he wanted a Cabinet reshuffle to become the new Foreign Minister of the country.

One tweet even stated that it was good that she didn't land in Mumbai first, as Mahesh Bhatt would have taken her for a screen test!

On a serious note, Rupa Subramanya wrote, “So far impressed with #hinarabbanikhar. A pity our country doesn't give this kind of prominence to one of our own young politicians.”

There were also some funny one-liners, such as, “Divided by Jinnah, united by Hina,” and “To counter #HinaRabbaniKhar India shouldmake #NDTiwari foreign minister asap.” (sic)

There were also a few supporting her affinity towards high-end fashion. “What's with HRK's Birkin making headlines? Our very own praful patel lists Hermes as his fav brand (sic),” justified Samidha Sharma.

At the same time, some tweets were in good humour, like this one: “In the spirit of Indo-Pak relations, Fevicol has decided to use the Krishna-Khar handshake as their brand ad!!!” (sic)

However, what took the cake was a tweet, stating, “A new weapon of mass distraction has arrived in India.”
