ISLAMABAD – Federal Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan, after sparking controversies over remarks about overseas Pakistanis and fake pilot licences, now made headlines about wishing to become a suicide bomber for deadly mission.

Khan, 66, made the contentious remarks while addressing a gathering in Rawalpindi’s NA-59, Paryal area. 

Cropped footage from his speech has gone viral on the internet in which Khan said he wished to be a suicide bomber to eliminate the enemies of Pakistan and Islam however the act of ending life is haram in Islam.

The ruling party minister added that he wants to obliterate the enemies of the country and religion at once by blasting himself in a gathering.

Meanwhile, the controversial remarks of the PTI minister have sparked backlash on social media as many users condemned his remarks.

Earlier in 2020, the aviation minister made claims that more than 30 percent of civilian pilots in the South Asian country got fake licences and are not qualified to fly.

Later, European Union Air Safety Agency (EASA) has suspended the authorisation of Pakistan's national flag carrier to operate in EU member states expressing concerns over Khan’s statement.
