Twitter Outraged As Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Reinstated As Punjab Info Minister

Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan has been reinstated as the information minister of Punjab months after he had resigned following his derogatory comments about the Hindu community, with the move causing outrage on social media.

In March, Chohan had resigned following severe criticism regarding his bigoted remarks against he Hindu community. In a television programme, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s member of provincial assembly (MPA) of Punjab had said that Hindus were ‘cow-urine drinking people’.

Following the news, people took to Twitter to express their resentment over the fact that someone who had made derogatory remarks against the Hindu minority had been given an important portfolio again.

Journalist Murtaza Ali Shah took to Twitter to state that Chohan’s reinstatement was a moment of silence for those media personnel who had hailed his sacking as the coming of a ‘Naya Pakistan’.

Another user stated on Twitter that Chohan’s reappointment was no surprise, and what he said in the past was in sync with the ideology of PTI, adding that it would not be surprising if PTI promoted him to an even better rank.

Journalist Naila Inayat also expressed criticism for Chohan’s reinstatement as information minister. She took to Twitter and asked people who they had found ‘tabdeeli’ (change), a frequent slogan of the ruling party.

Another user, while sharing the news, stated that Imran Khan was similar to the right-wing Islamic party, Jamaat-e-Islami.

Moreover, writer Nuzhat Siddiqui said that instead of the recent demand for restoration of student unions made at the Students Solidarity March, Fayyaz ul Hassan Chauhan had been reinstated.

People also pointed out that the decision to remove him from his post was a good decision by the ruling party and it had now taken a u-turn on the matter.
