Pakistan: Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad says gas cylinders burst after the ‘eggs exploded’ in Lahore train

The train named Tezgam Express was travelling from Karachi to Rawalpindi when the incident happened. The blast was so powerful that 16 bodies were charred beyond recognition.

Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad, the Railway Minister of parody country of Pakistan has finally found the reason for the recent train disaster in Liaquatpur, Pakistan in which 73 people were killed and several others were injured when a train caught fire.

According to Rasheed Ahmad, the gas cylinders in the train burst after the eggs which were being cooked inside the train exploded, leading to severe deaths inside the train. A video of Ahmad has been doing rounds in the social media, where he blamed breakfast made of eggs as the reason for the train disaster in Lahore.

Speaking to the reporters, Rasheed Ahmad said, “When eggs (breakfast) came into contact with fire, it exploded. Then, it resulted in an explosion of gas cylinders and the stove.”

At least 73 persons, mostly evangelical Islamic preachers, had died and several others were injured when a train caught fire near Liaquatpur in Pakistan. According to reports, three coaches caught fire when a gas cylinder used by passengers in a coach to boil eggs exploded. All three coaches were destroyed in the fire.

The train named Tezgam Express was travelling from Karachi to Rawalpindi when the incident happened. The blast was so powerful that 16 bodies were charred beyond recognition.

Earlier, Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad had blamed the passengers for the tragedy, saying Railways was not at fault. He said that an enquiry will be conducted to find out how Taleeghi Jamaat members carried gas cylinders and stoves and used them in the coach.

This is not the first time that Sheikh Rasheed has become part of the gaffe. In a hilarious incident after India abrogated Article 370 in Kashmir, Pakistan Railway minister while addressing a public rally during Kashmir hour had suffered an electric shock just after he mentioned PM Modi in his speech.

In August, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad had suffered an embarrassing situation in London after he was welcomed with eggs during an award ceremony. Incidentally, the man, alleged to be a Kashmiri activist, threw on the Pakistan minister in London. The man had allegedly waited outside the venue to throw the eggs on the Pakistani minister.
