society which is destroying the peaceful environment. Sectarianism, discriminatory laws & policies, killings in the name of religion, intolerance and hate towards different faith believers has made Pakistan an unsecure state for every citizen especially for the religious minorities and other marginalized communities

The speakers expressed that the state of Pakistan has its own identity and has a constitution but an extremist group Taliban and their allies are not ready to accept Constitution and want to impose their own governing system which is not acceptable for the citizens of Pakistan. Taliban is an armed group which is killing citizens of Pakistan every day and our government is not taking concrete measure to counter this situation. Government should show its power and eliminate all those elements.
