KATASRAJ: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that the people who had promised a â€œNaya Pakistanâ€ have done nothing. â€œEven in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa we are constructing a motorway. If they insist we will put their name on it.â€
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif addressed a ceremony on Wednesday where he inaugurated a water filtration plant at the sacred Hindu temple Katas Raj.
The filtration plant set up at the templeâ€™s holy Amrat Jal pond will provide clean drinking water to the pilgrims visiting the place. The prime minister planted a sapling in the premises of temple.
The PM expressed his joy at seeing representatives of more than five minority communities at one place. â€œThis is a place where Al-Beroni stayed,â€ he said speaking about the ancient town where it is thought the Islamic scholar stayed to learn Sanskrit.
He said that he hoped Pakistan will soon be a safe place for minorities. â€œOur Prophet (PBUH) took special care of minorities in Medina. He always remembered the Christian King of Medina fondly,â€ he said, adding that some Ulema were spreading intolerance in the name of religion.
The Prime Minister during his addresses also recited Sufi poetry.
