Ensure Constitutional Rights for Minorities
Imran Khan and his team from PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) promised us:
PTI will protect the civil, social and religious rights of minorities; their places of worship, property and institutions as laid down in the Constitution.
Minorities in Pakistan have consistently been denied their constitutional rights in contradiction to the objective of Quaid-e-Azam’s vision. The result of prevalent and unaccounted for discrimination against minorities (from all walks of life) has led to violence and their poor socioeconomic and human development.
We will enact structural reform to establish a legally empowered, well resourced and independent National Commission on Minorities, followed by provincial Commissions/Departments.
We will ensure equal access to justice and protection from discrimination in matters of law and order to minorities.
We will act against hate speech and violence towards minorities under the National Action Plan.
We will ensure that the minority quota in all government departments shall be implemented in letter and spirit.
We will organise inter-faith dialogue, especially among young people to promote tolerance and harmony.
