ISLAMABAD: I never said that international NGOs promote homosexuality, says Federal Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari, on Tuesday.
“Yes I gave my views on INGOs but what is being attributed to me was never said by me but some bureaucrat from Interior Ministry,” she tweeted.
This is rubbish. Yes I gave my views on INGOs but what is being attributed to me was never said by me but some bureaucrat from Interior Ministry. Unfortunate when reporters get it wrong. In fact I have no idea abt any INGO focusing on sexual preferences as an agenda item! https://t.co/B3gX4HS3qY

A couple of news websites had quoted the federal minister as saying that international NGOs in Pakistan were promoting homosexuality among the youth.
However, Mazari denied the statement came from her and said that instead a bureaucrat from the interior ministry had said it.
