SAPM Zulfi Bukhari Under Fire For Insensitive Conversation With Protesting Hazaras

  • 1.2K

Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Overseas Pakistanis Zulfi Bukhari is being criticised for his insensitive comments while talking to members of the Shia-Hazara community who have been protesting in Quetta against the killing of 11 coal miners in Mach for the past four days.

Bukhari reached Quetta to negotiate with the protestors who have stated that they won’t end the sit-in until Prime Minister Imran Khan visits the protest and assures them of an end to their persecution. The mourners have refused to bury their dead until their demands are heeded.

A clip of Zulfi Bukhari’s conversation with the protestors that has gone viral on social media shows the SAPM insensitively asking the protestors as to what benefit they will give to the PM if he comes to meet them.

Twitterari have condemned Bukhari’s tone while talking to the grieving protestors and said that he has displayed insensitivity.

Earlier, Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed had gone to Quetta to meet the protestors but they refused to call off the sit-in until all their demands are met. The sit-in entered its fourth day on Wednesday (today).
