After a spate of violent protests that gripped the country for an entire three days, federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Sunday that the state will not ignore the rebellion which took place and caused damage to public property.
The federal minister’s addressed media here, a day after he said in an interview to international media that the state’s behaviour wasn’t a cure but an act of ‘firefighting’ against the riots.
“This is not a religious issue, it is an act of rebellion. No state can ignore rebellion,” said Fawad Chaudhry.
“No one should have this wrong impression that the state will let this behaviour slide,” he said, adding that they will not ignore the incendiary speeches as well.
Fawad Chaudhry also heavily criticised the Pakistan Peoples Party, saying some of the lawmakers have alleged that the party takes out political vengeance.
“Due to Imran Khan, Sindh came out of ethnic politics,” said the information minister.
