In light of news that a Hindu woman was purportedly beheaded in Pakistan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA) stated on Thursday that Pakistan must protect its minorities and fulfil its responsibilities to ensure their safety and security.
In response to an inquiry on the alleged murder, MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi stated that he lacked a full report.
“…We have stated in the past that Pakistan must ensure the protection, security, and well-being of its minorities. I want to reaffirm that,” he added, adding that he could not comment on a specific case.
