Pakistan police fine Trump fan over illegal number plate
PESHAWAR: Donald Trump may have created controversies with his no-hold-barred speeches and his remarks against Muslims in the run up to the US presidential election, but it emerged on Friday that the man has got at least one staunch supporter in Pakistan’s northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa if not many.
Police in Peshawar fined a motorist for carrying a number plate with the name of US President-elect Donald Trump embossed on it, reported Geo News. The police issued a ticket of Rs200 to the driver before removing the illegal number plate.
Name of the driver was not immediately known.
Most of the Pakistanis along with many other Muslim nations were skeptical of the New York billionaire as he went on to pass remarks against the community during the race for White House. In his speeches after Paris attacks last year, Trump called for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States until he could “figure out what is going on.”
However, he softened the tone later saying during the second presidential debate that “the Muslim ban is something that in some form has morphed into extreme vetting from certain areas of the world.”
