Recently, in a talk show To the Point on Express with guests Hina Parvez Butt from PML-N, Naeema Kishwar form JUI-F and Usman Dar from PTI along side host Mansoor Ali Khan were having a political discussion when PTI member Usman Dar throws in a joke about Pakhtoon saying
Often Pathan sells blanket of Rs. 50 worth in Rs. 500 and you’ll see, at the end, the same thing will happen to them (Pathan)
Ridiculing the Pakhtoon he kept carrying on but Hina Parvez Butt from PML-N stopped him by saying
I will have to condemn you about saying such words about our fellow Pakhtoon, we are all Pakistani. PM Imran Khan shouldn’t use patriotic and national card only to himself. Such words aren’t just right to use
Anchor Mansoor Ali Khan also condemned Usman Dar saying
Please don’t talk that way about a particular nation.
But Usman Dar kept repeating what he said as if its nothing to be ashamed of and kept cutting off anchor, Hina Parvez Butt from PML-N and Naeema Kishwar form JUI-F by saying
Now be quite and listen to the truth about you.
Anchor Mansoor Ali Khan had to step in again to stop Usman Dar by saying
Both other guests are not appreciating your words, you should take them back
Finally Usman Dar casually said
Alright, I’ll take it back
leaving us with the feeling as if it was nothing to be so agitated on to begin with. But he kept talking about his point nonetheless. All this incident infuriated the nation and specially Pakhtoon, they took it to twitter to rant about such unprofessional behavior of a government personnel.
As the Usman Dar slammed Pukhtoon on national TV, I strongly condemn it.Neither does their leader think before speaking and their cabinet.We are proud as a Pukhtoon, if they earn working hard, then Usman Dar has no right to humiliate them۔@PTIofficial #ShameOnUsmanDar pic.twitter.com/6bIFEtMMmj— Rehman Chand (@RehmanChand2) November 6, 2019
What #ShameOnUsmanDar uttered about Pashtuns is a reason of introspection for many in PTI, including IK, who has been claimed many times as a Pashtun by PTI. He obviously is Not. It has always been a ploy to befool sincere Pashtun youth & Pashtun voters in general.— Pak Pashtun (@PakPashtun) November 5, 2019
But PTI supporters are at it again by taking PTI side no matter what they do and honestly this is just sad.

It was only slip of tongue I can surely say that Usman intention was not to hurt any Pathan Brother.
