Provincial Minister Fayyaz Chohan lashed with hard words on social media after he compared special children as Torment, appeared to be as shameful, indecent and deplorable.
As per details, Provincial Minister Fayyaz Chohan during press conference along Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid on coronavirus, said that disabled and handicapped children are an AZAAB to the parents as a punishment from Allah.
Soon after the comments, Federal Minister for Human Rights, Dr Shireen Mehrunnisa Mazari criticized Fayyaz Chohan on his comments,
Special children are not an “azaab” but are special human beings to be cared for and loved and allowed to develop their own potential.
In fact no child can ever be an “azaab” and for anyone to make such a cruel, inhumane statement is absolutely unforgivable and condemnable.

Thank you! Disabled people and children have a hard enough time living here as is, to view them as some sort of ‘azaab’ is downright ignorant and cruel.

We strongly condemn the words of Mr Chohan. Having kids with disabilities is not an 'azaab' of Allah. Using derogatory words for the already marginalized segment of society is careless and very unbecoming of an office holder. https://t.co/LmosHkKOKV
