Atif Mian Finally Breaks the Silence and Addresses the Recent Matter!

Out of the many decisions Prime Minister Imran Khan and PTI have made since winning the elections, choosing Atif Mian in a crucial seat for the economic wellbeing of the country was widely applauded, but also heavily criticized.

Atif Mian, who belongs to a religious belief system which is frowned upon by the extreme Muslims of the country, was asked to step down after the resurfacing news of his religious sect. After the entire fiasco split the country into two halves; whether Atif Mian should be on the Economic Advisory Council or not, it was finally shared that the Princeton professor was asked to remove himself.
