Minorities in any state play a vital role. Our flag has the white part, which shows that we have minorities who are free to live. If we wish to live in peace & harmony, we should treat every citizen with equal status irrespective of his personal belief & color. As Quaid said, “you are free; you are free to go to your temples; free to go to your mosques or any other places of worship in the state of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed that has nothing to do with the business of the state.” Rajender Meghwar became the first Hindu ever to qualify for the CSS exams setting new trends. We are proud of him.

This indeed is a message to the young generations that determination and hard work pay off. So don’t stop and think that you have failed.
