Fayyazul Hassan Chohan again made Punjab minister for information
LAHORE (92 News) – Fayyazul Hassan Chohan was again assigned the portfolio of provincial minister for information.
A notification in this regard has been issued. Minister for Industries Mian Aslam Iqbal had excused from holding the additional charge of information.
Then information minister Chohan was sacked in March this year for making derogatory remarks against the Hindu community.
“PTI Punjab government had removed Fayyaz Chohan from the post of Punjab Information Minister following derogatory remarks about the Hindu community. Bashing someone’s faith should not b a part of any narrative. Tolerance is the first & foremost pillar on which #Pakistan was built,” a tweet posted from PTI’s official account read at the time.”
Chohan had, subsequently, apologized for his remarks. In a clarification note issued later, Chohan had said: “I was only addressing Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and their armed forces and not the Hindu community residing in Pakistan.”
He had said he did not mean to target the [Pakistani] Hindu community and that his remarks were no way directed at them.
Later in July, he was re-inducted into the cabinet and given forestry, fisheries and wildlife portfolio.
