Ahsan condemns Capt Safdar’s anti-minorities remarks in NA


Islamabad, Oct. 12 (TNS): Federal Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, on Thursday, condemned hate speech by PML-N MNA Captain Safdar against minorities in the National Assembly.

A day after Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar pressed for a ban on hiring Ahmadis in the armed forces and other important institutions of the country, the interior minister termed the tirade ‘tragic’.

Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, who is on a visit to the US, took to Twitter to condemn the PML-N legislators statements saying it is tragic to see hate speech against minorities in the National Assembly.

“We believe in inclusive Pakistan. Pakistan respects all minorities,” the interior minister added.

Safdar came under fire after he launched an attack on the Ahmadiyya community in the NA session.
