Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday attended an event to celebrate the Hindu festival of ‘Diwali’ in Karachi. The function was organised by Pakistani Hindus residing in the port city of Karachi.
Addressing the event, Sharif paid rich tributes to the services of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Parsis for Pakistan, and said the government would provide human rights to each and every citizen of the state, regardless of their religion and beliefs.
“You are residents of Pakistan. Every resident of Pakistan, no matter who it is, Hindu, Muslim ,Sikh, Christian and Parsi, no matter who it is, belongs to me, and I belong to them. All of you belong to me, and I am yours. And I meet everyone with that sentiment. I am the Prime Minister of all of you. I am Prime Minister of all people sitting here, whichever religion they belong to. And it is my duty to help everyone. If anyone is a victim of brutality, no matter what religion what sect he belongs to, my duty is to help him. And God willing I will help him,” Sharif said to loud applause from the guests.
Sharif said in order to make Allah happy, Muslims must distribute happiness among Hindus and other minorities in the country.
