Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak is being lambasted for his insensitive statement on the Sialkot tragedy.

Speaking on the lynching of a Sri Lankan factory manager in Sialkot, defence minister Pervez Khattak said it was “youthful exuberance” and “happens all the time”.

Defence Minister of Pakistan Pervez Khattak had expressed his views that the ghastly lynching of a Sri Lankan man at the hands of a mob in Sialkot should not be linked to the government’s decision to lift the ban on the TLP, saying even “murders take place” when young people get emotional.

Priyantha Kumara, the export manager of a private factory, was killed by a mob of workers of the factory on Wazirabad road in Sialkot on Friday

His remarks have met with serious criticism leaving civil society in uproar on social media.

Friday was a shameful day for Pakistan as a mob in Sialkot brutally murdered a Sri Lankan man and set his body on fire over blasphemy allegations.
