1

Special Adviser to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs, Usman Dar, has been receiving flak on social media following his comments regarding Pathans on Mansoor Ali Khan’s show. Talking about Jamiat Ulema Islam’s march Usman Dar said, “In the end, they [the Azadi marchers] will get the same [returns] as those Pathan [vendors] who roam in streets and sell a blanket worth Rs500 for Rs50.”

Moments later, Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML N) MPA Hina Parvez Butt interrupted him and condemned Dar’s use of the word Pathan.

“I want to condemn [the usage] of the word Pathan [randomly] like this. We are all Pakistanis,” PML N MPA said.

Despite being called out, Usman Dar continued until Mansoor Ali Khan had to ask him to apologize. Special Adviser to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs took his statement back after Mansoor Ali Khan asked him to.

“Alright, I will take [my words] back,” Dar said.
