The top government officials on Tuesday hit out at the Punjab Information Minister Fayazul Hasan Chohan for his statement mocking the Hindu community and ridiculing them as ‘cow urine drinking people’.
The minister’s video of disrespecting the Hindu people went viral on the social media on Monday and several people strongly condemned the minister for his outrageous remarks.
However, the minister, according to latest reports, has apologized for his derogatory remarks.
“I was addressing the Indian army and Indian media,” Chohan claimed.
He added, “I am sorry if my statement has hurt the sentiments of Hindus residing in Pakistan.”
Chohan also said that he will ‘give a befitting response to anyone who casts an evil eye on my country.’ However, I was not referring to the Hindu community of the country, he stressed.
Several quarters on the social media had demanded the government to take action against the minister.
