Cheese import ban in Pakistan to revive economy: Twitter reactions

New Delhi : Many Pakistani Twitter users have overruled a proposal by the Pakistani government to ban import of cheese with a motive to revive Pakistan's economy.

Last week, the Pakistan government had removed Atif Mian, a brilliant economist, from the EAC because he's a minority Ahmadi.

As per government proposal, ban on cheese import will help the nation to recover spike in cheese imports and refill the shortage of dollars in Pakistan's economy. The explanation made no sense to most of the Pakistanis.

The EAC's rationale was it is considering "out-of-the-box'' ideas that would help curb imports. One of those ideas was stopping cheese imports.

"You see how much cheese is coming in this country from abroad. Market is full of imported cheese. Does this country, which doesn't have dollars, deserve this, that it is importing cheese?" said Ashfaque Hasan Khan, a university professor who's one of more than a dozen EAC members.
