Sanitary posts for Non-Muslims?
As a citizen, I wish to protest against a recent newspaper ad by the Sindh Institute of Ophthalmology Hyderabad that specifies that only Non-Muslims can apply against the post of sanitary workers. This ad is not just derogatory, discriminatory and divisive but also a violation of the constitution of Pakistan. The appearance of such mindless and insensitive ads has been an on-going practice by various state institutions and there is not a single individual in the Parliament, Senate or government who has stood up and taken a position on this issue.
May I request the government to please issue immediate orders to withdraw all such demeaning ads that reserve janitorial assignments to non-Muslims. Where there is an inescapable need to allocate a quota for a special category of individuals, this must be applied to all managerial tiers and not be limited to janitors only.
