Don’t Tar­get Hin­dus, says Pak Daily

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

A Pak­istani com­men­ta­tor has hit out at a pri­vate TV chan­nel for us­ing “ex­tremely of­fen­sive and deroga­tory re­marks” tar­get­ing the Hindu mi­nor­ity. A com­men­tary pub­lished in ‘The Na­tion’ pointed out that the au­di­ence roared with laugh­ter when the per­former, while ap­par­ently try­ing to be funny, used the word “dog” to de­scribe Hin­dus. “I am sur­prised how this was al­lowed to go on air keep­ing in mind there are mil­lions of Hin­dus liv­ing in Pak­istan,” the com­men­ta­tor said. “Un­for­tu­nately, from text books to talk shows to com­mon peo­ple, this cul­ture of con­sid­er­ing Hin­dus “im­pure” or “in­fe­rior” con­tin­ues, thanks to the likes of such peo­ple who in dis­guise of their “funny con­tent keep this ha­tred alive”.
