‘Minority students get equal opportunities’ | The Express Tribune


Punjab Minister for Human Rights and Minorities Affairs Ejaz Alam Augustine on Wednesday said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had taken numerous steps to provide higher education to students of religious minorities to excel in life.

He was addressing the ‘Minority Youth Exposure Programme Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’, organised by the Department of Auqaf, Hajj, Religion and Minority Affairs, KPK at a local hotel.

Augustine said a 2% quota had been introduced in higher education institutions in Punjab as education was the best ladder to progress in life while other provinces were also encouraged to follow suit.

The minister said the government was providing ample opportunities in every field by ensuring access to higher education for deserving and brilliant youth through various scholarship programs, adding that religious minorities were in a safer and better environment than other countries. He said students from minority communities would surely get their rightful place with their hard work and dedication. The minister paid tributes to the parents for ensuring the education of their children and assured his support to the cause of education in the country.

On the occasion, the youth belonging to different universities of KPK praised the steps taken for the welfare of religious minorities in Punjab.
