Outrage amongst minorities over Rehman Malik's 'non-Muslims are terrorists' remarks

Karachi, Feb. 7 (ANI): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) minority MPA Saleem Khurshid Khokhar has moved an adjournment motion in the Sindh Assembly against Interior Minister Rehman Malik, who reportedly said that "non-Muslims are terrorists".

Khokhar said that Malik had told the National Assembly that terrorists have been asked to lay down their arms or declare themselves as "non-Muslims". Khokhar said that Malik's speech was "completely biased and against religious minorities", reports The Express Tribune.

He demanded that the government get Malik "mentally examined".

Khokhar said minorities have equal rights in the constitution and the white colour in the national flag, which is an icon of peace, also represents the religious minorities in the country.

He said minority communities in Pakistan fear that Malik will order police and law enforcement agencies to kill minorities.

Khokhar further claimed that it was not the first time such statements have been issued by Malik and other conservative lawmakers of the PPP. (ANI)
