Pak MP wants booze to flow for all as easily as Pepsi or Coke

Islamabad, Wed, 21 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 21 (ANI): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MPA Saleem Khursheed Khokhar has said alcohol should be as easily available as Pepsi or Coke to stop reinforcing that it is only for minority faith members to consume.


Khokhar, who is also the chairman of the Standing Committee on Minority Affairs, brought up the idea as the Excise and Taxation Minister Mukesh Chawla was answering questions in the Sindh Assembly on Wednesday, The Express Tribune reports.


While another MPA, Anwar Khan Mahar, had clarified that alcohol was not allowed in minority faiths either, the minster told the assembly that according to the 1979 Act regarding the sale of alcohol, only non-Muslims were allowed to sell or consume alcohol.


Khokhar's point was that reinforcing that non-Muslims drink alcohol created further divisions and it should just be made open for all. (ANI)
