ISLAMABAD: Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday supported the stance of the PML-N leader Khawaja Asif on the construction of a temple in Islamabad.

In a tweet, the federal minister said, “Political differences have their own place, Khawaja Asif said that Pakistan’s Constitution guarantees equal freedom to allthe religions, he is absolutely right.”

He added, “Those who are issuing Fatwas on Khawaja Asif’s statement are projecting the thinking of Indian extremists and [Indian prime minister] Modi which needs to be rejected outright.”
