‘Its Pakistan’s internal issue’: Fawad responds to Sushma Swaraj’s remarks
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Fawad Chaudhry, on Sunday said that the issue relating to missing Hindu girls was the ‘Pakistan’s internal issue’ while responding a tweet published by Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj.
Fawad Chaudhry, in his latest Twitter message, warned Swaraj to refrain from making intervention into internal matters of Pakistan as the Indian minister had asked Indian high commissioner to ‘send a report’ over missing Hindu girls in Sindh province.
Chaudhry slammed her, saying that it was not [Indian Prime Minister] Narendra ‘Modi’s India where minorities are subjugated.
He clarified that minorities, here in Pakistan, equal rights like other nationals belong to different religions. He said, ” its Imran Khan’s Naya Pak where white color of our flag is equally dearer to us.”
Swaraj and the Indian government have been asked to better focus on countering miseries and trouble of minorities by providing their rights in India.
He said, ” I hope you ll act with same diligence when it comes to rights of Indian Minorities.”
