Pakistanis condemn Chohan for calling differently-abled children ‘punishment from God’

Punjab information minister Fayyaz Chohan ignited another controversy leaving  Pakistanis furious with his insensitive comments, however, it was not the first time.

The Punjab information minister was speaking at a press conference on Tuesday along with provincial health minister Dr. Yasmeen Rashid on the coronavirus outbreak when he made the controversial statement.

“God hands out punishment to people in the form of paralyzed, disabled children […] which forces that person to repent,” he said.

His comments were totally unacceptable and many took to social media condemning his remarks. Calling physically challenged children an act of divine justice for the sins of parents is deplorable and shameful!
