The government will value of the top authority’s opinion for the purpose, the minister said, adding that a debate about the issue is going on the social media.

“Islam, Sunnah, and the Constitution of Pakistan guarantee minorities rights and Islamic history has a number of such examples,” he recalled

The government will remove hurdle in the way to let minorities perform their rituals freely, he said adding that the construction on the temple has been stopped because of some issues.

However, he said the government has been waiting for the CII opinion and the issue would be resolved. No decision would be made against Islam and Sunnah, he said.
