ICC Note:

Forty years ago, Pakistan nationalized many of the Christian missionary institutions across the country including many of the missionary schools. During a meeting held by a minority political party in Lahore, leaders of the party called on the Pakistani government to return the institutions back to the Church. Claiming to be among the only political parties willing to take a public stand for Christians in Pakistan, the party claims it has already taken similar action in states where the party holds power.

4/24/2014 Pakistan (DAWN) – The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has demanded the PML-N government return 25 missionary institutions to Christians as the PTI has already returned Edward College in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to the church.

This was demanded by PTI Punjab Secretary-General Dr Yasmin Rashid and PTI minority MPA Shanila Rooth at the PTI Foundation Day and Easter celebrations here on Wednesday.

A large number of Christian and minority workers from the PTI were present on the occasion.

Dr Yasmin said the PTI believed in rights of the minorities and claimed it was the only party that formulated a minority policy and presented it in the media. She said party Chairman Imran Khan wanted the Quaid-i-Azam’s vision to become a reality and practically worked to ensure minorities in Pakistan got equal rights.

She said the PTI in KP had returned the Edward College to the church after 40 years.
