After certain administrative alterations in Punjab amid much criticism from the opposition parties, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has reappointed Fayazul Hasan Chohan as the provincial information minister, Dunya News reported.
According to the details, Chohan has been granted the additional charge besides that of provincial minister for colonies. The development comes after the previous information minister, Aslam Iqbal, excused himself from the additional charge.
Fayaz was earlier removed as Punjab’s information minister amid intense criticism over his derogatory remarks against the Hindu community.
Chohan, during a press conference had said, “You cow urine-drinking people, listen to me. We are Muslims and we have the flag of Hazrat Ali (RA) and Hazrat Umar (RA)’s bravery. You don’t have that flag.”
He had further said that “idol-worshippers” shouldn’t operate under the delusion that “they are better than Pakistanis”.
