  • In the wake of controversy over his statements on minority treatment in India, Pakistan PM Imran Khan posted a series of tweets on Tuesday
  • In the tweets, Imran Khan termed Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who is revered in Pakistan as Quaid-i-Azam, as the ambassador of Hindu Muslim unity

In the wake of the recent statement made by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan wherein he claimed to show the Modi Government on 'how to treat minorities', former Indian batsman Mohammad Kaif on Tuesday lashed out at the Pak PM putting out facts on how minorities have been only growing in India since independence presenting a sharp contrast in front of him.

Hours after Kaif tweeted hitting out at the Pak PM, Imran Khan took to social media and posted a series of tweets in which he yet again tried to compare the treatment of minorities in India and Pakistan while invoking founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who is revered as Quaid-i-Azam in Pakistan and terming him as the 'ambassador of Hindu Muslim unity'. 

In his second tweet, he went on to target India stating that Muhammad Ali Jinnah started his struggle during the Partition for a separate nation for Muslims after realizing that they were not being treated as equal citizens by the Hindu majority. Imran Khan also then claimed to ensure that Muslims in Pakistan are treated as equal citizens:

Earlier on Tuesday, Mohammad Kaif took to Twitter and attacked Pakistan PM over his remarks in minority treatment in India:

"There were around 20% minorities at the time of Partition in Pakistan, less than 2% remain now. On the other hand minority population has grown significantly in India since Independence. Pakistan is the last country that should be lecturing any country on how to treat minorities," his post read.

Prior to the former Indian batsman's statement, AIMIM's chief Asaduddin Owaisi had also called out Imran Khan for wanting to "show the Indian government how to treat minorities".  Owaisi in a tweet reminded Khan that the Pakistan Constitution only allows a Muslim to be the President of the country, whereas on contrary India has seen many Presidents from various oppressed communities.
