PCC condemns Pervez Khatak’s statement on cleaning jobs for minorities
KARACHI: Pakistan Christian Congress President Dr. Nazir S Bhatti has strongly condemned the state of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) nominated Chief Minister in KPK province that only sanitary workers’ jobs may be given to religious minorities in KPK province.
Imran Khan, who heads PTI has been claiming from years that Tehreek-e-Insaf (Movement for Justice) will provide social justice in Pakistan irrespective of cast, creed or religion to every citizen but PTI nominated Chief minister Pervez Khatak in KPK province is mocking with manifesto of PTI or showing real face of PTI after coming in power in one of the province of Pakistan with making official statement on floor of house that only Sanitary workers (Cleaning drains, streets and roads) job will be given to Christians, Hindus and Schedule casts.
Nazir Bhatti said, “Before formation of Pakistan in 1947, Pushtun were cleaning roads and streets of Peshawar and other cities of NWFP (No named of Khyber Pakhtunkha Province KPK) along with schedule caste neither Hindus nor Christians.”
The Christian were running Schools and Hospitals in KPK province before partition of Indian sub-continent and formation of Pakistan but Muslim majority turned Christians to be second-class citizens and forced them to perform cleaning or sanitary worker jobs.
Dr. Bhatt said that in every Municipal Committee or Municipal Corporation of KPK province, there are 15% Muslims who are on the payroll of sanitary workers, but Pervez Khatak failed to see it before issuing such a statement, which have hurt feelings of Christians of KPK.
Nazir Bhatti urged Christians to stay away from PTI because on next step it’s going to announce separate dress for non-Muslims in KPK where Jamat Islami (JI) an ally party of PTI in government of KPK have demanded separate assembly for women and minorities.
The PCC Chief demanded immediate clarification from Imran Khan on statement of Chief Minister KPK Pervez Khatak and to announce equal job opportunities for Muslims, Christians and Hindus in the province. -PR
