Mahinder Pal Singh reportedly said that an increasing number of representatives from different minority groups were being given key responsibilities, referring to appointment of a Sikh youth as Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Punjab governor in the recent past.

A Hindu woman has also been appointed as a civil judge in Sindh, which is a clear sign of Pakistan’s trust on its minorities, he reportedly added.
