HYDERABAD: Defence Minister Syed Naveed Qamar has said that the government would take all measures to address the concerns of the Hindu community who are Pakistani citizens and enjoy equal rights.

“President Asif Ali Zardari has ordered to solve all their problems and to ensure that nothing like the reported exodus of the community ever takes place,” the minister said while talking to the media in Tando Muhammad Khan on Sunday.

Qamar said that the minorities were not discriminated in any way in the country. “We are doing our best to give maximum protection to them,” he said adding that the rights of minorities were enshrined by Quaid-e-Azam who declared that all citizens of the country were equal.

The minister was accompanied by PPP's district president Haji Ameen Lakho and other leaders of the party.
