It’s that time of the year again! Just 2 days left until Christmas, while minorities in Karachi are already celebrating it.
We are delighted to report that the Christian community in Karachi, which comes under minority population of Pakistan is having to practice their rights as citizens.
Christmas preparations in Karachi are in full swing. Where revelers are decorating Christmas trees, we have churches lit all across the city for the upcoming festival on Sunday the 25th of December.
Pakistan is a country with a large proportion of Muslim population. We celebrate our festivals in full enthusiasm every year. Minorities celebrating their festival is surely a delightful sight.
Minorities in Pakistan have been denied their rights at large. Hate and religious discrimination have adulterated our societal values and disregard the basis on which our country stands as a whole.
There have been many incidents in the past where we witnessed brutality subjected to minority communities in Pakistan. It’s a round of abysmal shame to see these people suffer.
But for now, Pakistan is somehow on the rise. At least these pictures prove so.
We take on Karachi as adults and children both feature in a rally brought on Shahra-e-Faisal on 21st December in a lead up to Christmas.
All smiles as children taken on the roadway in full enthusiasm.
People riding camels wearing Christmas hats. It has been a warm show by now.
Of course, the children. Children a delight of every celebration and every festival. Children are a hallmark of happiness. How can we forget children?
Here we have our minority women, celebrating their hearts out. A very pleasant sight indeed.
How creative, innovative and how Karachi-like this is? They are able to make something big out of something so little.
It is a moment of immense pride that our minorities are finally celebrating their rights wholeheartedly. They are free and no one objects to them. These pictures certainly reflect our values.
Our past leaders and icons have struggled and toiled for their rights and bring freedom to all and this is a sight of success and of things finally working out.
This is a sight of Pakistan finally moving forward and realizing what matters.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and best of the occasion.
