Pakistanis Are Furious After A Racist Ad Approved By The Punjab Government Was Aired On TV

By Maliha Khan | 16 Sep, 2018

While the premise of a new Pakistan is being tested thoroughly, a recently aired ad that portrays Pashtuns as enemies of the state did not sit well with numerous Pakistanis. To top it all off, it was paid content by the Punjab Government.

 

Pakistanis were furious and took to social media to protest against the ad that they said portrayed negative sentiments against the Pashtun community

Most people were not impressed with Punjab Government.

They considered it to be a shameful act.

It was also deemed hurtful.

Pakistanis were outraged and consider this to be racial profiling against certain groups of people in Pakistan.

Many spoke out for their Pashtun brothers and sisters.

Many believe this issue needs to be brought up in the next session of National Assembly to raise awareness as well.

Evidently, this shocking advertisement had caused an outcry in Pakistan, and the government was quick to take notice. The ad was retracted from being aired, but it remains on the internet through the power of sharing.

 

Fawad Chaudhry, the Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, also made a statement about the government taking down the ad after considering people’s sentiments

Even though the advertisement was taken down, it remains in the hearts of the people it impacted. 

Once it was taken down, Pakistanis were relieved the government took some form of action.

However, some people still want answers and justice.

As horrifying the ad was, it’s heartwarming to see Pakistanis come together and unite to defend a particular group. What do you think about this entire debacle?
