Equal citizenship

Sir: Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah said that anyone living within the geographical borders of this country is a Pakistani, who deserves equal rights, liberty and freedom guaranteed by the constitution.

Every society must learn to respect and understand ‘others’. Instead of perceiving each other as a separate ‘religious’ or ‘political’ entity, and magnifying differences, we should focus more on the similarities and commonalities that all of us share.

The humanistic approach is the need of the 21st century. Let’s forget what happened in the barbaric past.
