In a first in the country’s history, a Sikh officer has been appointed public relations officer to Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar.

According to the Punjab governor’s office, Pawan Singh Arora, who was previously working as district information officer, Nankana Sahib, has assumed charge as Sarwar’s PRO.

Arora has also worked as a radio broadcaster and a content writer.

Sikhs form a small community in Pakistan, most of whom live in Punjab, and parts of Sindh and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

Capital’s lone Sikh taxi driver hails Kartarpur border opening

In November last year, Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the foundation stone of the Kartarpur corridor, which connects two Sikh holy sites — Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan and Dera Baba Nanak in India.

Pakistan’s friendly gesture is meant to facilitate the Indian Sikh community to visit the sacred place where Baba Guru Nanak, their spiritual leader, lived for 18 years until his death in 1539.

    BOTH THE COUNTRY ARE WASTING PRECIOUS RESOURCES ON ARMS AND AMMUNITION. AND PURCHASE IS HELPING THE THIRD COUNTRY IN PROVIDING EMPLOYMENT TO THEIR YOUNG ONES AND MULTIPLYING THEIR WEALTH. WE BOT THE COUNTRIES ARE WASTING THIS PURCHASE IN KILLING EACH OTHERS SOLDIERS AND INNOCENT CITIZENS.
