 Punjab Minister for Minority Affairs Ejaz Alam Augustine and others were also present on the occasion.

 Sarwar further said, “Minorities in Pakistan have full liberty whereas India has become the slaughterhouse for minorities as RSS terrorists are targeting all minorities including Muslims, adding that the countries where minorities are not safe cannot prosper.”

 He elaborated that in order to strengthen any country, it is necessary to provide religious freedom and protection to the minority communities. "I myself have been a minority citizen in the UK as a Muslim which is why I am aware of minorities’ problems."
