Pakistan Army Removes ‘Christians-only’ Condition For Sanitation Jobs And We’re Loving This Decision!

Minorities in Pakistan have been denied their rights at large since the very beginning. The hate and religious discrimination have adulterated our societal values so much that the ‘differences’ have taken a toll on the country as a whole.

We’ve often seen that in Pakistan, either Christians or non-Muslims are hired and have been associated with janitorial jobs. Just recently, a Pakistan army advertisement offering sanitation jobs for Christians and non-Muslims has triggered a heated debate between the minority community.

The advertisement announced several vacancies for the posts of drivers, tradesmen and sanitation workers in the army’s Mujahid Force. People took this to Twitter and requested DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor to remove the ‘Christians only’ condition and republish the advertisement!

The minority rights activists were on fire!

According to Samaa News,

“6,000 out of 7,894 sanitation workers in the Lahore Waste Management Company are Christian and 768 of 978 workers in the Quetta Municipal Corporation are Christian.

More than 95% of Pakistan’s 220 million people are Muslims. Less than 2% are Christians, Hindus or belong to other religions.”

Kapil Dev even posted a similar newspaper advertisement last year as well!

But then, the issue was plea was heard right away and taken care of! Thanks to the Pakistan Army!

Now that the issue has been taken care of, we really don’t think the sentiments of our minorities will be hurt in the future. We appreciate the Pak Army’s effort and all that they’ve done until now!
