Muniba Mazari Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan
In recent days, Pakistan and basically the entire world, are taking up strategic measures to fight the novel Corona. The entire public is looking towards the government at this point in time. And when a press conference happened, Fayaz Chohan showed up with his derogatory comments.
In a press conference regarding briefing on the Coronavirus pandemic, Fayyaz Chohan made some insensitive remarks about people with disabilities
He said that having children with a disability is a punishment by God and an azaab for parents. The press conference included all the provincial ministers and focused on information dissemination for Corona. Targeting the retailers who stock essential supplies, Fayaz said that they’ll get punishments from God in the form of children with disabilities.
@Fayazchohanpti, keep the reference to #disabled children in a negative manner out of your political statements. It is disgusting and deplorable. Hoarding is a crime but a child born with physical, sensory or cognitive disabilities has nothing to do with it. @Dr_YasminRashid pic.twitter.com/CDHPs6KSGv

Fayaz Chohan should keep his mouth shut. Saying disabled children is a punishment of God due to parents sins is the most pathetic and ridiculous thing to say. Shame on him

Muniba Mazari, wheelchair-bound artist and activist also slammed the terrible remarks by Fayyaz Chohan
She called on Prime Minister Imran Khan to ask his team to show empathy, wisdom, decency and grace, calling the remarks by Mr. Chohan as “shameful”. She also said that she herself was a differently abled person and her mother is proud of her, instead of as Mr. Chohan had said, considering her an azaab.
Is this for real? I’m appalled & disgusted! @ImranKhanPTI Sir, I hope you watch this & ask your team to have some empathy, wisdom, decency and grace! This is Shameful!
PS: I am a person who’s differently abled & my mother takes pride in what I’ve done for my country so far! https://t.co/uGrQWDgap6

Sharing with sentiments of Muniba Mazari regarding Fayyaz Chohan, Minsiter for Human Rights Shireen Mazari also called out the offensive statement
Special children are not an "azaab" but are special human beings to be cared for and loved and allowed to develop their own potential. In fact no child can ever be an "azaab" and for anyone to make such a cruel, inhumane statement is absolutely unforgivable and condemnable.

People came out defending people with disabilities against the remarks of the PTI minister
Differently abled children are a bigger and more precious gift from God. They teach us more then we teach them. Disgusted!

Special children are just fine. Fayaz Chohan stop worrying about them. Allah has his own ways of creations and goofs like you can't understand that.

People like him are the azaab or corrupt politicians not harmless and innocent kids who are closer to Allah than you and I will ever be!

They were enraged at the Government for giving him a provincial position again after he was once removed for a similarly insensitive statement
Remember when Fayaz Chohan embarrassed us with his racist remarks for Hindus?

Disgusting to say the least. Fayaz ul Haq Chohan doesn't qualify to remain a public representative. https://t.co/grgd9BBThh

This is on @ImranKhanPTI now. We’ve had people say a lot of bad things over the years but nothing of this level. I hope we put self respect and human dignity before politics. Kick Chohan out of the party pic.twitter.com/qcEuwpIdyo

Muniba Mazari and other people are rightfully calling out Fayyaz Chohan for his verbal diarrhea. Ministers should look out for their language when they’re addressing masses. Such problematic views would only make the people question their credibility for such a position. And it’s about time that Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan realizes better than to be an ignorant fool.
People Are Asking For Fayaz Chohan To Be Fired After His Disgusting Remarks About Hindus Have Embarassed PTI
