MPA Syed Ejaz Hussain Bukhari has said that the government regards the protection of rights of the minorities as it is constitutional duty and is committed to their welfare.

He was addressing the participants of a seminar held in connection with “Minority Rights” which was organised by “Save the Youth” in collaboration with “Faizyab Foundation” at Fatima Jinnah Hall here the other day.

The MPA said that after the death of Quaid-e-Azam, the political leaders could not ensure equal rights to the minorities that created a sense of insecurity, disappointment, anxiety and deprivation among them.

He urged better coordination between state institutions and minority community with vibrant participation of local population to foil the evil designs distrust between different communities living in the country.

He said that the government must act upon the vision of Quaid-e-Azam and constitution of the country and ensure equal rights to the minorities.  He added that the nation was united against terrorism and was determined to make the country as dreamed by Quaid-iAzam and Allama Iqbal.

Shireen Aslam, Muhammad Azam Azmi, Kashif Nawab, Tahir Awan, Arshad Taj, Asifa Shahwar also addressed the seminar and said that minorities of Pakistan were playing vital role in the development of the country and certainly deserve respect and equal rights.
