PESHAWAR: The Interfaith Harmony Conference organised by Auqaf, Hajj, Religious and Minority Affairs Khyber Pakhtunkhwa concluded on Friday.

The three-day conference preceded final round of singing competition.

On this occasion, Advisor to the chief minister on Information Technology Kamran Bangash stated that people of different faiths are a part of Pakistan, they shouldn’t be termed as minorities.

He further extended his support and said that the government representatives are already working on the empowerment and uplift of them however they’ll continue to work for them even in future.

Zia Ullah Bangash, Deputy Speaker of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government enlightened the youth on the status of education and answered their queries.

He stated that the government of Pakistan is currently working to uniform the education system and for that purpose they have formulated a committee that has representatives from Madrassah and Minorities.

He further said that there is a need of tolerance and acceptance.

Secretary of Auqaf Hassan Mehmood said that the most difficult task is to connect people from different faiths under one roof  “but we did it. I would like to request the participants to not just keep the interfaith harmony limited to this place but take it with you to your cities.”
