The resolution by the EP came yesterday. The EP has asked Pakistan to review the process of inclusion of religion of its citizens in passports.
Other positive measures taken by the Pakistani government, however, have been appreciated by the EP. In November 2008, the Pakistani government reserved five percent seats for minorities in the sectors of federal jobs. Minorities inPakistan comprise of the Hindus, Sikhs, Shias, Ahmadis, Buddhists, and Parsis.
The government has also started recognizing non Muslim public holidays. Also a “National Minorities Day” is celebrated in the country. All these measures have been welcomed by the EP.
