The Sindh Minister for Information, Local Government, Housing, Town Planning, Religious Affairs, Forest and Wildlife, Syed Nasir Hussain Shah, vowed to protect the rights of the minorities.

Having participated in the ongoing religious festival in Swami Narayan temple in Karachi, the provincial minister expressed his solidarity with the religious minorities and categorically acknowledged that the role and contribution of the members of the minorities in the development and progress of the country was commendable. 

“Following the teachings of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government has always remained committed towards protecting the rights of the minorities,” he remarked on the occasion. 

“The Sindh government would continue to do so under the guidance and leadership of the PPP Chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. It was the government of the PPP which always reserved seats for the members of the minorities more than any other political party in the country,” Nasir Hussain Shah added. 

He recalled that the PPP, through plenty of legislations, had protected the rights of the minorities in the province with the Sindh Child Marriage Restraint Act being another example. The Minister vowed that the Sindh government would continue to introduce whatever legislation needed for the protection of the members of the minorities. 

Nasir Hussain Shah announced that the Sindh government would make available 10,000 copies of Bhagavad Gita for the members of Hindu community soon. 

A Hindu delegation led by Pandit Shayam Nand and Ram Yoga Das, who came from Australia to attend the festival, also met with Syed Nasir Hussain Shah and his delegation that included special coordinator to Sindh Chief Minister, Shahzad Memon, Dr Lal Chand Ukrani and Chairman DMC South Malik Fayaz.

The Caravan-e-Bhutto train march led by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, reached Nawabshah on its way to its destination of Larkana. 

He was warmly welcomed by party workers at the Nawabshah Railway Station as he was showered rose petals while the station was profusely decorated with colorful banners. 

The Caravan-e-Bhutto had kicked off from Karachi's Cantt Station on March 26 saw many senior PPP leaders joined Bilawal Bhutto in his journey to Larkana to attend the 40th death anniversary of the party founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, a former Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Addressing party workers from the compartment of his train, the PPP chairman said the late former premier and the party founder had sacrificed his life but did not take a U-turn. 

Bilawal Bhutto remarked that practical steps were necessary for bringing stability to Pakistan's economy instead of collecting charity. 

He was of the view that the accountability should be for everyone but instead a series of revenge process has been started in the name of accountability. He questioned about the accountability of Aleema Khan and asked whether the wealth was taken back from her.
