KARACHI: Special Assistant to Chief Minister Sindh, Ms Sharmila Faruqui said on Tuesday that federal government should devise a proper policy and strategy to ensure protection of minority’s rights.
“Their souls and properties are to be protected on priority basis. We strongly condemn the Lahore church blast as we did in past after every incident, but this is not enough. Now we need actions and implementations, not words. We should learn from our mistakes,” she said in a statement.
She added that federal government need to follow the directions of apex court for the constitution of National Council of Minorities Rights and Special Task Force to protect minorities’ worship places. These rulings were made a year back in detail decision on sou-moto case pertaining to the suicide bomb attack on a Church in Peshawar.
Sharmila also said that such incidents are causing huge defamation of Pakistan worldwide. “Our all efforts are in vain to export softer image of Pakistan internationally.”
She urged that racial, social and religious harmony and tolerance are highly needed to be taught in madressah, schools and college levels. No country or mind would survive in isolation in this global village, Sharmila concluded.
