Tassaduq Mufti, the younger brother of Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, on Thursday was trolled on social media after he accidentally said he swore in the name of “dog” instead of the name of “god” during an oath-taking ceremony as a minister.
While taking the oath, delivered by Governor N N Vohra in the lawns of the Raj Bhavan in Jammu, Tassaduq pronounced god as “dog”.
However, he was quick to rectify himself by immediately following up his error with “god”.
This did not stop netizens, including Opposition National Conference (NC) leaders, from trolling him on social media.
“At a time when Kashmiris getting killed day in & out, prudence is to be with dogs. At least they are safe than human blood and this is what #TasaduqMufti did (sic),” Mir Irfan, a Facebook user wrote.
NC spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu shared the video on his Facebook page with the caption: “I Tassaduq Hussain Mufti, swear in the name of DOG”?!?!?? Befitting start! God help the departments his sister will gift to him. God help J&K! (sic).”
