I, however, mention that before the adoption of Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN, our religion Islam has exhorted human beings to follow tenets of human values, according top priority to human rights.
I have always urged the nation to join hands to fight against discrimination and fanaticism.
Our Government has been endeavouring to promote national unity in order to build Pakistan as a great nation according to the vision of Quaid-i-Azam. We are steadfastly working towards establishing equality for all human beings besides creating an environment of peaceful co-existence and non-discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, colour, sex, race and religion
Through this, we are creating conducive environment for youth to become a part of nation building process.
The present Government is also undertaking a number of legislative measures to ensure protection and promotion of Human Rights.
I am sure that the commemoration of International Human Rights Day will inculcate profound adherence of its underlying spirit.
