History Made in Pakistan; Hope for Christians

This is for the very first time in the history of Pakistan that there will be representation of Pakistani religious minorities in the Upper House of the Parliament.(Islamabad, Pakistan)—In an historic move, the Senate of Pakistan will now, under the 18th Constitutional Amendment Act 2010, have four seats reserved for minorities—one each from the provinces of Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The 18th amendment in the Constitution of Pakistan 1973 has been a blessing for the minorities and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). It has restored the confidence of the minorities, including Christians, by this act because it would have been in the regime of late Zulifqar Ali Bhutto, a former Prime Minister of Pakistan, and the founder of Pakistan People’s Party, who implemented the present constitution of Pakistan.
