Govt taking steps to better lives of minorities: PM Nawaz


CHAKWAL: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said the day is not far when Pakistan will be recognised as a “minorities-friendly country” due to steps being undertaken to better the lives of minority groups.
“We have promoted the vision with our actions that ‘to each his own faith, as humanity is our common asset,’ the premier said while speaking at the Katas Raj Temples Complex in Chakwal.
The PM said he has advised government officials to spare no efforts in hosting pilgrims and the protection and expansion of minorities’ places of worship.
The premier earlier inaugurated a water filtration plant at Katas Raj temple.
The filtration plant set up at the temple’s holy Amrat Jal pond will provide clean drinking water to the Hindu pilgrims visiting the place. Sharif also planted a sapling on temple premises.
He also visited different sections of the temple where he was briefed about its historic significance.
Minister for Religious Affairs Sardar Yusuf and Chairman Evacuee Trust Property Board Siddiq-ul-Farooq accompanied the prime minister.
