The Pakistan Culture Minister Fayyazul Hassan Chohan has been sacked for his anti-Hindu comments.Even though later he removed the comment,it went viral and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, tweeted, “bashing someone’s faith should not be a part of any narrative.”
“PTI Punjab government has removed Fayyaz Chohan from the post of Punjab Information Minister following derogatory remarks about the Hindu community. Bashing someone’s faith should not b a part of any narrative.Tolerance is the first & foremost pillar on which #Pakistan was built (sic)” the party tweeted.
Chohan, known to be a firebrand Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader, had made his remarks on February 24 in Lahore in response to India’s statements against the Pulwama bombing of February 14 in which 40 CRPF jawans had died.
Soon after that, a video of his derisive remarks had gone viral on Monday with the hashtag #SackFayazchohan trending.
Before his removal, the Pakistan prime minister’s special assistant on political affairs Naeemul Haque had also tweeted saying that the PTI party would not “tolerate this nonsense”.
