As PM Nawaz Sharif said, “Pakistan was not made so one religion can dominate over others. Religion does not force anyone to do anything, let alone forcing anyone to adopt a certain religion. Forced conversions are considered a criminal practice according to our religious teachings.”
Under the flag of Pakistan, the minorities deserve their right to celebrate their festivities in full swing. It was lovely seeing how Pakistanis gathered and celebrated this joyful occasion with their fellow citizens.
