Albert David, President of Pakistan United Christian Movement (PUCM) lays emphasis on fact that the government of Pakistan needs to take direct and solemn steps to rebuild confidence and trust amongst the non-Muslim citizens of Pakistan. He highlights the urgent need to take such steps keeping prime focus on the promotion of unity and harmony so as to get the minorities into the mainstream of the national and political sphere irrespective of their political associations and creeds.

 
Talking to newsmen Albert David expressed grave concerns over the topical in-house alleged proclamation by the Chief Minister of KPK Pervez Khattak; allegedly insulting the minorities.

 

“These were highly insensitive, discriminatory and biased remarks delivered by Khattak on the floor of the KPK Assembly”, the Pakistan United Christian Movement premier said. Moreover, Albert David stressed that the non Muslim Pakistanis consider alienated as a consequence of the present electoral system, which is based on “selection and not election.”

 

Albert David- Chairman of the Pakistan United Christian Movement, (PUCM) aims to create wakefulness in Christians of Pakistan through his political party. He animates the need for Christians to claim “Elections” not “Selection” all over the country. He emphasizes on the issue that Christians in Pakistan should keenly take part in National politics, to make certain their visibility on the political scenario.

 

Mr. Albert continues to spotlight the necessity for Christians in Pakistan to unite under one political platform so the other major parties of the country may be on familiar terms with the Non-Muslim parties. Expounding about the Constitutional amendments, he complained that during past 65 years, the 207 seats for parliamentarians were increased to 335 even as, the seats for women increased from 15 to 60 but on the contrary the seats reserved for minorities increased from 10 to 14- which is not in proportion; as the Non-Muslim population has increased notably.
