US Consulate deletes tweet pointing out Pakistan’s religious intolerance – Rabwah Times


The U.S. Consulate in Karachi, Pakistan has removed a tweet which pointed out Pakistan’s religious intolerance against its Ahmadiyya community.

The embassy had issued a tweet on Tuesday afternoon urging the public to watch Salam, a documentary film on Abdus Salam, a Nobel prize winning physicist. Salam was shunned by Pakistan due to his Ahmadiyya Muslim faith.

“If you want to figure out what’s wrong with Pakistan, watch #SalamOnNetflix”

The tweet was quickly deleted soon after, but not before it was saved tech savvy Pakistani twitter users.

The documentary film which follows Abdus Salam’s journey from a small village in rural Pakistan to worldwide scientific acclaim has won six awards for best documentary film and was released on Netflix this month.
