ISLAMABAD: Pakistan proudly owns the white in its flag, said Dr Muhammad Faisal, spokesperson of the Foreign Office, on Tuesday.

“Pakistan proudly owns the white in the flag as much as the green, values contributions of the Hindu community & honours them as our own,” tweeted Dr Mohammad Faisal.

His statement comes a few hours after Punjab Information and Culture Minister Fayyaz ul Hasan Chohan made offensive remarks about Hindus while speaking to media.

Chohan’s remarks on the Hindu community evoked anger on social media as Pakistanis asked for the provincial minister to be sacked.

#SackFayazChohan started trending on Twitter, with various Pakistani Hindus venting their anger at Chohan.
