Pakistan minister Fawad Hussain has let his tongue loose again. His statement in relation to suicide bombers has not gone down well with many.
Bengaluru: Some people are hard to forget because of their phenomenal achievements. While some others are also hard to forget, not because of their phenomenal achievements, but because of their crass statements.
Well, Pakistan minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain surely falls into the second classification.
He said, “It is not true that all students studying in Madrasas are involved in suicide bombing incidents but the bitter truth is that all suicide bombers are Madrasa students.”
@AainaFirdos all Madressa students r nt suicide bombers true bt all suicide bombers r Madressa students this is bitter reality..— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) January 11, 2014
Fawad has a history of making such needless comments. A few days, when India was waiting with bated breath to watch lander, a part of Chandrayaan2, to land on lunar surface, but lost communication, he had mocked India.
He had said, “Modi g is giving Bhashan on Satellite communication as he is actually an astronaut and not politician. Lok Sabha should ask him question on wasting Rs 900 crore of a poor nation.”
The moment he said this, people on twitter slammed him saying he is not of sound mind.
He was in the news again for his statement on 10 Sri Lankan cricketers withdrawing themselves from touring Pakistan for a cricket series.
He had said, “Informed sports commentators told me that India threatened SL players that they ll be ousted from IPL if they don't refuse Pak visit, this is really cheap tactic, jingoism from sports to space is something we must condemn, really cheap on the part of Indian sports authorities (sic)".
In 2009, a terrorist attack targeted a Sri Lankan cricket team bus in Lahore, in which several players were left injured. Since then, Pakistan has remained isolated as a destination for international cricket.
Following Sri Lankan players pulling out, an official source in the Pakistan Cricket Board had told news agency PTI that Pakistan would accept whatever team the Sri Lankan board sends.
