The induction of Samsam Bukhari in the Punjab Cabinet comes a day after Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan tendered his resignation as the Punjab Information and Culture Minister following a severe backlash against his derogatory remarks for the Hindu Community.
The demand of Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan’s resignation had overwhelming been raised, and even leaders of his own party – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) – didn’t stand by him and openly denounced his statement.
Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan also had to seek an apology to the Hindu Community; however, that didn’t work and eventually he had to relinquish his responsibilities as the Punjab Information Minister.
