‘Hindus are our enemy’ says Pakistani politician in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly

Ali Muhammad Khan, a minister in Imran Khan's government, had recently called ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’, while another minister Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan had addressed Hindus recently as "Cow urine drinkers".

Pakistan People’s Party leader Sher Azam Wazir made a highly controversial and anti-Hindu remark while speaking at a provincial assembly in Pakistan. Addressing the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly in the wake of Pulwama terror attack, Wazir said,” Hindus are our enemy”.

Wazir’s anti-Hindu remarks were criticised by two Hindu members of the Assembly Ravi Kumar and Ranjeet Singh who walked out of the Assembly in protest.

Wazir’s remarks were expunged by Speaker of the Assembly Mushtaq Ghani from the Assembly proceedings. Wazir later apologised for his remarks and said that he should have used the word ‘Hindustan’ instead. The two protesting Hindu members of the Assembly were taken into confidence by the rest of the members and were brought back to the session.

Ravi Kumar said that the Hindu community in Pakistan is not hostile towards the country. There are a total of three minority members in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly.

This is not the first time that the Pakistani leaders’ abhorrence for Hindus found an expression. Several times Pakistani leaders have targeted Hindus by addressing them with derogatory remarks like cow urine drinker. Ali Muhammad Khan, a minister in Imran Khan’s government, had recently called ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’, while another minister Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan had addressed Hindus recently as “Cow urine drinkers”.

Recently Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan’s former wife Reham Khan had alleged that Imran Khan himself routinely uses derogatory words for Hindus. She said that Ministers like Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan who had called Hindus cow urine drinkers after the air strikes in Balakot, enjoy the patronage of Imran Khan and therefore this is not an isolated phenomenon.
