LAHORE: The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader has apologized for his action after criticizing social media for using inflammatory words against the Hindu community.
A banner was organized by PTI Lahore General Secretary Mian Akram Usman to unite with Kashmiris on the occasion of the day celebrated on February 5, along with Prime Minister Imran Khan and founder Pakistan Prime Minister Muhammad Ali Jinnah'S picture was affixed.
This poster was written using provocative words against the Hindu community that 'Hindu Baat say nahi, Laat say Manta hai.'
After criticizing social media, Mian Akram Usman apologized to the Hindu community living peacefully on both sides of the border.
When the PTI leader was approached, he told Dawn News in a special conversation that he had asked the printer to produce a poster for the Kashmir Day proper, criticizing Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He claimed that the printer was misunderstood and wrote 'Hindu' instead of Modi on the banner.

Responding to a user in this regard on Twitter, Akram Usman said that as soon as the matter came to notice, the banners were taken down immediately and I am not one of those people who made a mistake.
Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari said in a message on Twitter on Thursday that the move was shameful, saying that the PTI's general secretary was warned and posters were immediately dismissed.
