ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistani ambassador to the United States (US) Husain Haqqani who has become active against Pakistan has got a right snub from Chinese Envoy in Pakistan.
Hussian Haqqani recently shared an online article titled “China demands that Uighur Muslims eat Pork”. The tweet was noticed by Lijian Zhao, deputy chief of the Chinese Embassy in Islamabad, who responded to the allegations.
“Joke of the day. A person without soul and nationality is joining a groundless attack against China. What a pity!” he said in reply to Haqqani who then called it a “pitiful act of the day”.
Haqqani referred to Zhao as “a Chinese diplomat who attacks me for tweeting an article rather than denying the article from @thetimes.”
Reacting to the veracity of the claims made in the article, the Chinese envoy called it a “groundless anti-China propaganda”. He said that the Chinese government protects its citizens’ right to freedom of religious belief and people of all ethnic groups enjoy freedom of religious belief in accordance with law.
