Pakistan SC slams Imran Khan govt over 30,000 jobs allocated to minorities still remaining vacant – indiablooms

Islamabad: The Pakistani Supreme Court, during the hearing of a suo motu case on the attack on Rahim Yar Khan’s Bhong temple, recently questioned the Imran Khan government over the issue of job quota for minorities.
The government questioned the reason behind 30,000 jobs allocated to minorities remaining vacant.
“Nearly 30,000 jobs allocated for minorities are vacant. Why?” Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed asked at a hearing Tuesday in Karachi as quoted by Samaa TV.
Shoaib Suddle, chairman of the Minority Commission, replied that Pakistan has set a 5% job quota for minorities.
“It doesn’t specify whether Hindus, Sikhs, or Christians should be hired,” he was quoted as saying by Samaa TV.
Consequently, the chief justice summoned a report on government jobs for minorities and instructed the federal government and chief secretaries to cooperate with the commission, the Pakistani TV reported.
