Punjab Information and Culture Minister Fayyazul Hassan Chohan has drawn the flak of Imran Khan's party PTI for his anti-Hindu remarks.
became a target of intense criticism by senior members of his party, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf following his castigating remarks on the Hindus. During a press conference last month, the minister Fayyazul Hassan Chohan was allegedly called Hindus as "cow urine-drinking people".
"We are Muslims and we have a flag, the flag of Maula Alia's bravery, and flag of Hazrat Umara's valour. You don't have that flag; it isn't in your hands," the Minister was quoted as saying by Samaa News agency.
"Don't operate under the delusion that you are seven times better than us. What we have, you can't have, you idol-worshippers," Mr Chohan said in a video that went viral on the social media.
The remarks by Mr Chohan came amid reports of escalating tension between India and Pakistan following the Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir that claimed lives of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans.

Reiterating the same, Prime Minister Imran Khan's Special Assistant on Political Affairs Naeemul Haque said that the PTI government will not tolerate this nonsense from a senior member of the government or from anyone.
