KARACHI: Tolerance is the foundation of co-existence, said chief minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Friday. He remarked he is working hard to develop interfaith harmony in the province.

“When you have a tolerant society it allows you to grow.” He said while speaking to Father Robert McCulloch, the procurator-general of the Missionary Society of St Columban. The CM said that people of different faiths live in Sindh and have contributed a lot in the social sector, particularly in education, health and development of the society.

People from different religions have established educational institutions and hospitals and served humanity. “I appreciate their services,” said Shah. Father Robert said that Sindh has a unique society which is above religious and sectarian divide. “People of Sindh follow Sufi saints and don’t promote religious and sectarian fanaticism,” he added.
