The National Commission for Minority Rights Act, 2015 (Private Members’ Bill)

Proposed and Moved by: Mr. Lal Chand Malhi (Member, National Assembly)

Status: Pending

Summary: The goal of this bill is to suggest establishing The National Commission for Minority Rights in order to ensure that the rights of minorities in Pakistan are protected and reinforced, as is mentioned in the Constitution of Pakistan, 1973.
The bill suggests that since the Islamic State of Pakistan is party to several international instruments on human rights, including the Declaration on the Rights of Persons belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities of the United Nations, the state is responsible for fulfilling its duty to protect, empower and develop underdeveloped communities, including religious minorities, so they can participate in economic, political and public life through various means, which entails a policy of preferential representation where necessary.
