Pakistan Hindu Council reacts on hate speech by Ali Mohammad Khan

KARACHI / Islamabad (May 4, 2019): Pakistan Hindu Council has shown serious concern over the hate speech delivered in the National Assembly by State Minister Ali Mohammad Khan. In a joint statement issued on Saturday by President Gopal Khamuani and Secretary General Parshotam Ramani, the Council also expressed solidarity with the Patron-in-chief Dr. Ramesh Kumar Vankwani for his social contributions.
Pakistani Non-Muslim community has played pivotal role for the success of Pakistan Movement, the statement said, adding that many Non-Muslim leaders like Jogandnath Mandal were close companions of Quaid-e-Azam.
Even today, Pakistani minorities have countless contributions for the prosperity of country and Nation. Pakistani Hindu citizens are also sacrificing their lives to defend our beloved motherland. Pakistan Hindu Council emphasized in its statement.
Pakistan was came in to being as a result of democratic struggle, and it is right of every parliamentarian, including Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani, to do legislation for the betterment of society. “However, nobody should be allowed to criticize someone on the basis of his/her religious affiliation,” Pakistan Hindu Council said.
“You belongs to Non-Muslim minority, and you have no right to present the anti-Islam bill on such issues.” Pakistan Hindu Council quoted the controversial statement of State Minister Ali Mohammad Khan, while demanding to withdraw his words immediately.
The hate speech delivered by Ali Mohammad Khan results in hurting religious sentiments of entire Non-Muslim minority community, to insult the parliamentary values and damaging the repute of Pakistan in the eyes of international community. Pakistan Hindu Council concluded.
Pakistan Hindu Council also endorsed the viewpoint of Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani seeking ban of child marriages under the age of 18 years old.
