  • Without minorities, no country can flourish and progress.
  •  Pakistan is beautiful because of minorities but each year, we end up carrying the dead on our shoulders.
  • Pakistan receives funding from several countries to protect minorities.
  • Govt. fails to offer protection to them.
  • Today, I am here to carry by my dead brother’s body today.
  •  I won’t rest until the Pakistani government books the murderers of my brother.

  • Pakistan should stop “prevaricating” and take immediate action to apprehend and give exemplary punishment to the perpetrators of the crime.
  • We strongly condemns the targeted killing of minority Sikh community member in Peshawar that follows the recent despicable vandalism and desecration of the holy Gurdwara Sri Nankana Sahib.
  • The members of the minority Sikh community in Pakistan have been subjected to acts of violence at the holy city of Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of Guru Nanak Dev.
