پنجاب کے وزیر اطلاعات فیاض چوہان کا تقریب سے خطاب فیملیز کی موجودگی میں ایسی گفتگو کہ خواتین پریشان نرگس کو حاجن بنانے اور میگھا کو تین ماہ کے روزے رکھوانے کا عزم باقی گفتگو آپ خود سن لیں میری طرف سے پیشگی معذرت pic.twitter.com/DInpQhXInH

The event was organized in the honor of Musician Mujahid Hussain, however, at one point the minister took a swipe at the ‘immorality’ of film industry and advised people that they could watch porn films if they were so frustrated.
The lawmaker also criticised the advertisers for displaying posters showing ‘half-naked woman’, warning that the cinemas which would not comply with the directions would be shut down after a formal notice.
‘I would have transformed Nargis to Haji Nargis,’ said the minister in a boastful tone to assert his capabilities. He also insinuated that actor Megha would have fasted for 300, instead of 30 days in a year, under his supervision.
The minister also lost his temper on a TV show last night after he was asked tough questions over his earlier remarks.
