PESHAWAR: Religious leaders from all over the country stressed for implementation of the Supreme Court’s order to ensure protection to the non-Muslims all over Pakistan, according to a local news outlet.
Speaking at a news conference at Peshawar Press Club on Tuesday, Pakistan Council of World Religions (Faith Friends) Vice Chairman Bishop Peter Sarfraz Humphrey said that the Supreme Court (SC) had ordered to ensure protection of non-Muslims across the country. He lamented, however, that due to the fact that the court order was not yet implemented, minorities’ lives and properties, as well as religious places were not safe.
Humphrey said minorities were feeling insecure in the country and it is a concerning fact, and that the recent killing of Charanjeet Singh was a huge example of this. He called upon the government to implement AC’s verdict to prevent such an incident from happening in future.
He also said that killing of innocent people belonging to religious minorities was a conspiracy hatched to sabotage peace process in the country. He said that certain forces were out to create disharmony among people belonging to different religions. He stressed the need for taking steps at gross root level to establish religious harmony and tranquillity in the country.
