A delegation of the National Minority Commission of Pakistan led by Chairman Chela Ram Kelvani on Tuesday called on Acting Governor Balochistan Mir Jan Mohammad Jamali at Governor House Quetta here. While talking to the delegation, Acting Governor Balochistan Jan Jamali said that the Constitution of Pakistan was the guarantor of giving equal rights, religious freedom and the right to express opinion to all the minorities living in Pakistan.

“Due to the wonderful values and traditions of the nations living in Balochistan, all the minorities are being treated equally like their relatives at the social level,” he said, adding “our noble traditions do not allow any kind of discrimination on the basis of religion or gender”.

Stressing the need for religious harmony, he noted that in order to make the country and province a cradle of peace and harmony, it has become indispensable to promote brotherhood, mutual respect, religious tolerance and harmony.

Acknowledging the services of the minorities in Pakistan, the acting governor said the minorities living in Pakistan had produced many eminent personalities who have rendered valuable services in various fields of life and have also been involved in the struggle for the development.
