“PTI Punjab government has removed Fayyaz Chohan from the post of Punjab Information Minister following derogatory remarks about the Hindu community,” the account tweeted. “Bashing someone’s faith should not be a part of any narrative. Tolerance is the first and foremost pillar on which Pakistan was built.”

Meanwhile, sources said, party leader Samsam Bukhari is set to replace Chohan as the new provincial information minister. The former Punjab minister had used foul language against the Hindu community while criticising India.

“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 said in a media talk on Monday. “Idol-worshippers” shouldn’t operate under the delusion that they are better than Pakistan.” Leaders of the different political parties slammed Punjab’s information minister for the derogatory remarks.
