Govt approves inclusion of Qadianis in National Commission for Minorities

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Under instructions from Prime Minister Imran Khan, the federal government approved the inclusion of Qadianis in the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) on Wednesday. Moreover, the Ministry of Religious Affairs has been directed to reorganize the National Commission for Minorities. Reacting to the move, PML president Ch Shujaat expressed his concern over the inclusion of Qadianis in the NMC. “The opening of Pandora’s box of Qadianis is beyond understanding. Neither the Qadianis accept themselves non-Muslim minority nor do they accept the constitution of Pakistan. Under these circumstances, the favouring of Qadianis is a joke with Pakistan which is unacceptable,” he maintained. He said that there was need of broad-based consultations with Ulema before such move. “But the government did not bother to take its allies into confidence over the matter. The discussion of a sensitive matter is raising several questions,” he said. The PML president demanded immediate withdrawal of the decision. “We and our party dissociate ourselves from such proposal which is in clash with the constitution,” he concluded. Meanwhile, MPA Hafiz Ammar Yasir termed the decision to include the Qadianis in the National Commission for Minorities as unwise.
