ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Tuesday that minorities in Pakistan will be treated as equal citizens according to Jinnah’s vision.

“Naya Pakistan is Quaid’s Pakistan & we will ensure that our minorities are treated as equal citizens, unlike what is happening in India,” tweeted the prime minister on the occasion of Jinnah’s birthday.

“Quaid envisaged Pakistan as a democratic, just and compassionate nation. Most importantly he wanted our minorities to be equal citizens,” he tweeted.

The prime minister said that Jinnah had been an agent for Hindu-Muslim unity but only when he realized that Muslims would not get their due rights in a Hindu-majority country did he envisage Pakistan.
