KARACHI: On Sunday, PTI aide “This is not a religious issue, it is an act of rebellion. No state can ignore rebellion,” said information minister, Fawad Chaudhry.
“No one should have this wrong impression that the state will let this behaviour slide,” he said, adding that they will not ignore the incendiary speeches as well.
The federal minister said that those involved will be taken to task and earlier the government only sought to resolve the issue under a strategy.
“The Constitution and law of the state were insulted, this act is hard to forgive,” said the federal minister.
Chaudhry also heavily criticised the Pakistan Peoples Party, saying some of the lawmakers have alleged that the party takes out political vengeance.
“Due to Imran Khan, Sindh came out of ethnic politics,” said the information minister.
In an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on Saturday, Chaudhry said that using force against protesters was not the preferred method for the government to deal with the demonstrations.
