Pakistan asks India to protect Muslims’ rights


ISLAMABAD: Commenting on the eruption of violence in India over the slaughter of cows, the Foreign Office of Pakistan on Thursday said the country which claimed to be a secular state should guarantee the basic rights of minorities, particularly Muslims.

“Attacks on Muslims on the issue of cow slaughter are beyond comprehension and a cause of concern for the Muslim Ummah,” said the Foreign Office Spokesman Qazi Khalilullah.
