Twitterati Slam PTI Government for Giving in to Bigotry Against Atif Mian’s Removal from EAC

The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government has asked Princeton University economist Atif R. Mian to step down from the Prime Minister Imran Khan-led Economic Advisory Council (EAC). The decision, in turn, has stirred a storm on social media.

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry also confirmed that Mian had been asked to step down.

“The government wants to ensure religious scholars and social groups are on board and it is not appropriate if one single nomination prevents that from happening,” he added.

Social media users have risen their voice against bigotry against the Ahmedi community in Pakistan and for succumbing to it so easily.
