Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that minorities are safe in Pakistan and the government is also ensuring complete religious freedom for them.

There is no doubt that societies that do not ensure the protection of minorities and religious freedom are destroyed. All sectors, including the government, are working together to promote interfaith harmony in Pakistan

International human rights bodies, including the United Nations, must take note of the atrocities committed against minorities in India.

Governor Punjab was speaking to the media at the opening ceremony of a photo exhibition on “Interfaith Harmony” organized by the Switzerland Embassy at Governor House Lahore on Monday.

Benedict de Cerjat, Federal Parliamentary Secretary for Minority Affairs, MNA Shanila Ruth, Chairman IMRF, Samuel Piara, President Speedo Raza Shah, Chairman Rawayat e Hilal Committee, Khatib Badshahi Masjid Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad and others attended the ceremony.

Addressing the media on the occasion, Chaudhry Sarwar said that it’s welcoming that all minorities in Pakistan including Sikhs, Christians and Hindus are on one page for the promotion of religious harmony in the country. Everyone is working together because of which whenever anyone in Pakistan tried to conspire against religious harmony they have failed.

The government is also taking practical steps to promote religious harmony. It is our collective responsibility to make Pakistan strong and prosperous.
