PM Abbasi disowned statement of Capt. (r) Safdar in NA about Ahmadi

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday disowned the statements made on the floor of the National Assembly by Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law retired Captain Muhammad Safdar when he launched into a virulent tirade against Pakistan’s persecuted Ahmadi community.

“Neither I nor Mian sahib or the party is responsible for his views”, Abbasi said while talking to DawnNews, adding that “He [Safdar] should not have said what he said. No one in the party would agree with him.”

“Being a parliamentary leader I will take up this issue with him,” he maintained.

Abbasi, however, rejected the notion that Capt Safdar’s remarks fell into the category of hate speech. “What he [Safdar] said was apparently in the flow of emotions.”

“We should stay away from such statements which create unrest in the society,” said Abbasi, while agreeing that being a son-in-law of Nawaz Sharif he should have behaved more responsibly.
