Foreign minister proposes constitution of ‘Oversight Committee’ to resolve issues Pakistani’s minorities

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Thursday has proposed that a Parliamentary Oversight Committee be set up to address the issues of the country’s minorities, especially forced conversion.

 He told a Minority Convention organised by National Assembly that the constitution did not allow forced conversion to Islam, and neither did Islam.


Bhutto also said steps were being taken to improve conditions for minorities with the aim of proving that every citizen has equal status.


He further urged the National Assembly to ensure proper implementation on minority quota in government offices.


Bhutto also paid tribute to late minister Shahbaz Bhatti, saying he had given a sacrifice but did not compromise on the rights of its people.
