The former wife of the Prime Minister Imran Khan, Jemima Goldsmith has criticized the government's decision of withdrawing Atif Mian 's name from Economic Advisory Council (EAC).

In her official Twitter account, Jemima wrote that it is very disappointing to see that new govt asked an honourable and respected Prof of Economics to stand down just because of his religious beliefs.

The founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah appointed an Ahmadi as his foreign minister, she further added.

Earlier today, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government has asked Dr Atif Mian, who had been appointed to the Economic Advisory Council (EAC), to step down.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Twitter, "The government has decided to withdraw Dr Mian's EAC appointment."

It is not favourable if one appointment causes differences, he further said.

The government was facing a backlash from the different segments of the society over the appointment of Dr Atif Mian in the Economic Advisory Council.
