ISLAMABAD: In a day and age where people in Pakistan have a choice from close to 100 public and private television channels, there are few there where one can turn to for greater interfaith harmony. To remedy this, the Minister of State for National Harmony intends to launch a television channel for that single purpose.

With the onset of Ramazan, most television channels will swap their regular programming schedules for one which is more tailored to the religious sensitivities of the majority Muslim demographic. However, the state owned and operated interfaith harmony channel has a single objective, promote peace, moderation and tolerance within the multiplicity of Pakistan’s society.

The Minister of State Akram Masih Gill Wednesday divulged details of the process to launch the television channel while addressing a “Peace Conference” organised by the National Commission for Interfaith Harmony and Human Rights Pakistan(NCIHP) at the Islamabad based National Press Club (NPC).

Minister of State stressed the need to promote moderation, tolerance and inter-faith harmony in order to eliminate the menace of terrorism from the society especially in the current national scenario.

Gill expressed his commitment to continue efforts aimed at promoting interfaith harmony and creating understanding and accommodation among different societies.

    I Advise that Like the present Prime Minister of Pakistan said in his a press statement,The said Tv also express and copy, rather practically implement the Mottos of Jammat_E-Ahmaddiya to achieve the real success.

    1- ” LOVE FOR ALL HATRED FOR NONE”

    2- “HUMANITY FIRST”
