KARACHI: The notion pertaining to lack of protection of Hindus in Sindh is baseless and certain elements were spreading such propaganda to serve their own vested interests, stated Sindh Minister for Excise and Taxation, Mukesh Kumar Chawla Tuesday.

He was talking to a representative delegation of the Hindu community at his office.

The minister informed the delegation that the present democratic government was aware of the problems of the minority community and added that a 15-member committee has been formed on the directives of President Asif Ali Zardari in this regard.

He said that the committee will prepare its recommendation for the resolution of problems faced by the community and the government will ensure strict implementation of these recommendations.

Chawla also pointed out that minorities enjoy full freedom as per the Constitution of Pakistan. The 1973 constitution guarantees protection to the minority community, he added.

The minister said that the Hindu community is playing a prominent role in the development of the province and added that the government is providing full protection to minorities.

The members of the delegation expressed satisfaction at the measures taken by the government.

    This minister should be honoured Nishan-e-Pakistan.
    I also recommend a nobel prize in literature for him.

    My simple questions for Mukesh Chawla that if Hindus are safe than why they are migrating???
    Why action was not taken against Mian MIthoo and still he is continuous torturing Non-Muslims and PPP is totally supporting him why???
    When ur Government can arrest those people who attacked rally of ur MNA than why those elements are still free and enjoy the killing of three innocent doctors at Chak???

    Respected minister,

    Kindly stick to autocrossing, that is one activity you’re really good at. Talking about minority rights seems far fetched when you yourself don’t know the cost of essential commodities.

    The fact that a minister has to clarify on this is a message in itself about the condition of the non-muslims in Pakistan. Good luck for your campaign, minister.

    This minister has had his brain cells reimplnted but they forgot to reimplant his identity by name. A really loyal Pakistani. All minorities are safe in heaven of Pakistan because there will be no discrimination over there.Recommend
