Later, talking to the media men, the Punjab governor said that Pakistan was an Islamic welfare state and everyone was free to practice their religion as per their liking. “It is because of a small minority that we are facing criticism of the west and we must bring in harmony and patience in our behaviours to defeat the enemies,” he emphasised.
