ISLAMABAD: Minorities Day provides us an opportunity to reassure that despite belonging to different faiths we are one nation which continues to march for a united and prosperous Pakistan, said Minister Incharge for National Harmony Dr Paul Bhatti in his message on Minorities Day, which is to be celebrated on August 11 (today).

He said the services rendered by religious minorities alongside our Muslim brothers constitute a glorious chapter in the history of independence. He added that religious minorities have given a considerable contribution to different fields, including health, education, defense, and social welfare.
