ISLAMABAD: Describing Naya Pakistan as “Quaid's Pakistan," Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said the government would ensure that their minorities were treated as equal citizens, unlike what was happening in India.

“Quaid envisaged Pakistan as a democratic, just and compassionate nation. Most importantly he wanted our minorities to be equal citizens. It should be remembered that his early political career was as an ambassador for Hindu Muslim unity," the Prime Minister said in his tweet posted on his twitter handle on the occasion of birth anniversary of the founder of nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

“His struggle for a separate nation for Muslims only started when he realized that Muslims would not be treated as equal citizens by the Hindu majority. Naya Pakistan is Quaid's Pakistan and we will ensure that our minorities are treated as equal citizens, unlike what is happening in India," he said.
