چیئرمین پی پی پی بلاول بھٹو زرداری کی رحیم یار خان میں ہندو برادری کے مندر میں تخریب کاری کرنے والے عناصر کے عمل کی مذمت— PPP (@MediaCellPPP) August 5, 2021
مذہبی رواداری ہمارے خطے کی روایتوں کا حصہ ہے، عدم برداشت کے مظاہرے ہماری تہذیب کے منافی ہیں، چیئرمین بلاول بھٹو زرداری@BBhuttoZardari
Bilawal said,” Religious tolerance is part of our region's traditions and these ‘expressions of intolerance’ are against our civilization.
PPP leader said, “Protection of minorities is the primary responsibility of the state as the administration was nowhere to be seen when extremists were attacking the temple. Insult to Hindu community not only hurt members of Hindu community but also increases insecurity among them.’
He added, “If we can't give a sense of security to the few percent minority communities in the country, then this is a moment of concern for the majority population.”

MoHR in touch with RYK police since yesterday to ensure action against perpetrators - got a report - following up - our Parliamentary Secretary going to visit today.”
