Karachi, Nov 13(ANI): The Pakistan Government is considering to translate the Hindus Marriage Bill into local languages and widely circulate it through the media to obtain the public input, a Pakistani lawmaker has said.
Speaking at a Human Rights Commission of Pakistan(HRCP) meeting, Kishin Chand Parwani said he had submitted the bill in parliament after organising consultations with the community, and stressed on the need of incorporating the public's input in the bill.
Parwani also suggested that minority communities be given the dual voting right, the Dawn reports.
They should be able to cast one vote each for both minority and majority community representatives.
Two HRCP members, I. A. Rehman and Zohra Yusuf said the tolerance level in Pakistan society was declining, which was rendering minority communities' survival difficult.
They said the HRCP was organising such meetings to get input from the minority community and liberal groups to formulate broad guidelines on the issue. (ANI)
