Hamza Ali Abbasi has announced his decision to resign as Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) Culture Secretary through a Facebook status on Tuesday.
The actor, who has recently been in the news for his provocative statements regarding his co-stars, deemed himself “no more eligible” to represent Pakistani culture in a political party.
Referring to a recent film, Hamza stated that completing the film went against what he believed in, and this was what had prompted his resignation.
“Since I failed to act on my own beliefs, I deem I am no more eligible to represent Pakistani culture in a political party and hence, I am resigning as Sec. Culture PTI.”
