Hindus in Pakistan excluded from RTI Act, protest


The members of the All Pakistan Hindu Rights Movements (APHRM) held the demonstration outside the Press Club building against the alleged exclusion of the minorities from the ambit of the legislation.

Activists from minority Hindu community in Pakistan have staged a protest here against the provincial government of Khyber Pakthunkhwa for allegedly not allowing minorities to access information through the recently enacted Right to Information Act.

The members of the All Pakistan Hindu Rights Movements (APHRM) held the demonstration outside the Press Club building here against the alleged exclusion of the minorities from the ambit of the legislation.

The minority group’s leaders alleged that the KPK government was not giving them their due rights and they are being subjected to “discriminatory attitude”.

“Prohibiting access to information will weaken minorities and undermine their civic and political rights,” APHRM Chairman Haroon Sarab Diyal said.

The demonstrators demanded the government to provide correct information to the members of the minority community under the law.
