Pakistan Hindu Council (PHC) chairman and member of the National Assembly, Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani is confident that the effort of around three dozen volunteers belonging to the Hindu community would make it to the Guinness Book of World Records.
Dr Vankwani said the community stands with the rest of the country when it comes to Pakistan’s defence. “We want to give a clear message to the world that we stand united for the defence our motherland,” he added while commenting on the deteriorating situation of the Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK).
“The flames of war between the two nuclear powers can engulf the entire world,” the MNA remarked.
He said the United States must convince India that the Afghan peace cannot be achieved without the help and support of Pakistan.
