Former bishop asks Pakistan to treat religious minorities equally

On Sunday, talking to the media at Jilal Baba Auditorium, former bishop maintained the “untouchables” of  the Hindu caste system of the subcontinent accepted Christianity centuries ago but have still not been considered as equal citizens and human beings.

 

“Having a broom in hand does not degrade a person as a human being. It is the mindset we need to change,” said the former bishop.

All humans are born equal and have the right to be treated that way without any religious or professional discrimination, said Shah.

 

Supporting his statement, Shah said the United Kingdom had only one mosque till 1930. “Muslims used to learn Quranic teachings in the churches of London which motivated Christian children, who started leaning the Bible by heart,” he said, adding it set a commendable example for interfaith harmony.
