Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan rejoins Punjab cabinet
LAHORE - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's outspoken leader, Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan took oath as provincial minister on Friday.
Chohan has been appointed as the forestry, fisheries and wildlife minister - a portfolio earlier held by Sibtain Khan who was arrested by National Accountability Bureau and subsequently resigned from the post on June 15.
Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan was sacked from his post as Punjab Minister for Information and Culture following his controversial statement against the Hindu community in March; he was replaced by Samsam Hussain Bokhari.
“We are Muslims and we have a flag, the flag of Maula Ali’s bravery, and flag of Hazrat Umar’s valour. You don’t have that flag; it isn’t in your hands,” Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan had said.
Fayyaz Chohan had apologized for statement against the Hindu community, however, his remarks were condemned by the political commentators as well as his fellows.
Prime Minister Imran Khan had also expressed his displeasure with Chohan over his remarks, however, the leader is being made part of the cabinet for one more time.
