In the past decade all the country was facing the menace of terrorism as minorities were also became the victim of extremism. As the country is eradicating the terrorist elements from all parts, it is a good gesture that political parties showing their wishes to the Hindu community on the eve of Diwali the Festival of Lights. Sindh provincial government of Pakistan Peoples Party announced public holiday for the minorities to celebrate the Diwali. On Friday Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf also organized an event in Sindh, Umerkot for the Hindu community in the celebrations of Diwali. Keeping in mind the miserable condition of religious minorities living in the country, the demand is not as off-beat as it might appear at first glance. When it comes to discrimination against our minorities, both at the social and political level, Pakistan probably high on the list as mostly minority groups has not been harassed or threatened by the prevalent extremist mindset of society. Under these miserable circumstances, it is a good act doing some positive discrimination and announcing this festival as a public holiday, if not for the whole country then at least for the Hindu community. Steps like this would enhance the image of the country in the world.
