Suspension of Rules
On a motion moved by Mr. Khalil Tahir Sindhu in terms of Rule 234 of The Rules of Procedure of the Provincial Assembly of the Punjab 1997, the House granted leave to suspend Rule 115 and other relevant rules of the Rules ibid, for taking up the following Resolution which was unanimously passed by the House:
Mr. Khalil Tahir Sindhu moved a Resolution that 11 August 2020 was a Minorities Day (Youme Aqliyat), as observed every year on the same day because the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah delivered the following speech in the First Constituent Assembly on 11 August 1947 and demanded to make this speech part of every academic syllabus.
You are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the State. Thanks God we are starting in those days when there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another, no discrimination between one caste or creed and another. We are starting with this fundamental Principle that we are all citizens and equal citizens of one State. Now I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal and you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizen of the State.

منظور شدہ قراردادیں
قرارداد نمبر: 67
محرک کا نام: جناب خلیل طاہر سندھو (NM-368)، چیئرمین سٹینڈنگ کمیٹی برائے انسانی حقوق و اقلیتی امور
"میں یہ قرارداد پیش کرتا ہوں کہ مورخہ 11 اگست 2020 کو Minorities Day (یوم اقلیت) ہے جو ہر سال منایا جاتا ہے، اس موقع پر میں یہ قرارداد پیش کرتا ہوں کہ بانی پاکستان قائداعظم محمد علی جناح نے پہلی دستور ساز اسمبلی میں تقریر کرتے ہوئے 11 اگست 1947 کو فرمایا کہ:
“You are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the State …… Thank God …… we are starting in those days when there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another, no discrimination between one caste or creed and another. We are starting with this fundamental Principle that we are all citizens and equal citizen of one State.
Now I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal and you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizen of the State.”
لہذا اس ایوان کی رائے ہے کہ اس تقریر کو پنجاب میں ہر سطح پر نصاب کا حصہ بنانے کی سفارش کی جائے۔"
