Indefensible & v disappointing. New Pak gov asks renowned & respected Prof of economics to stand down because of his Ahmadi faith. NB: The founder of Pakistan, “Quaid-I-Azam” appointed an Ahmadi as his Foreign Minister. https://t.co/qBubETGwOg

He said that the Pak government government decided to withdraw the renowned economist named from the Economic Advisory Council, because of being his Ahmadi, although Pakistan leader Mohammad Ali Jinnah appointed a Ahmadin as minister.
It is clear that after severe criticism from religious parties and other constituencies, the government has announced to remove Atif Mian from the membership of the Economic Advisory Council.
PTI Senator Faisal Javed said in a statement that Atif Mian has taken the membership of the Economic Advisory Council.
