Pakistani minorities demand equal rights
Pakistan’s minorities have protested to demand equal rights for citizens regardless of their religious or ethnic backgrounds.
They have asked for electoral reforms and said the law stating a minority member cannot become Prime Minister or President should be scrapped.
The group, which gathered at the press club, also asked to be given the right of dual voting so they can elect their representatives.
