PIA to send Christian employees to Vatican

As the Muslim staffers at Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) are sent to pilgrimage in Makkah, the national flag carrier management has decided to also send the Hindu and Christian employees to their religious sites abroad. Sindh Assembly member and Standing Committee for Minority Affairs Chairman Saleem Khursheed Khokhar said this while addressing a press conferee on the sidelines of the assembly session on Thursday. PIA Christian Employees Welfare Society President Anwar Gul was also present on the occasion. “The PIA will send at least five Christian employees on an all-expenses paid trip to the Vatican (Italy) every year while a similar facility would also be offered to the Hindu staff for a pilgrimage to their desired destination,” Khokhar said. With the approval of the new facility, the minorities in the country would be able to perform their religious obligations from this year. The minority community employees at the PIA would also be provided services on PIA flights like their Muslim fellows, Khokhar said. STAFF REPORT
