Provincial Minister for Human Rights and Minorities Affairs Ijaz Alam and Youdhister Chohan MPA called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office.

The CM said Rs.2.5 billion is being spent for the welfare of minorities adding that a two percent quota for minority communities’ students will open the doors of higher education in the best institutions to excel in life. Meantime, no practical step was taken for the welfare of the minorities in the past, he deplored.

The CM said minorities’ cells have been set up in 40 provincial government departments along with the nomination of focal persons. Similarly, focal persons have also been nominated in 9 divisions, 36 districts and 144 tehsils after setting up minorities’ cells to help resolve their issues, he mentioned. Alongside, he said special funds have been provided for the repair and maintenance of gurdawaras, hindu temples and churches as minorities enjoy complete freedom in the constitution of Pakistan. It is sanguine that practical steps have been taken by PM Imran Khan to protect the rights of minorities in Pakistan, he remarked.

On the other side, the CM strongly condemned the ill-treatment of minorities in India which is the so-called claimant of being the largest democracy in the world. The hindu supremacist Modi regime has turned India into a hindu state where minorities are languishing.
