ISLAMABAD - Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said that minorities in Pakistan enjoy equal rights, the Radio Pakistan reported.

Responding to Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's tweet regarding alleged abduction of two Hindu girls from Sindh, he said it is an internal matter of Pakistan.

The Information Minister said it is not Modi's India where minorities are subjugated, rather it is Imran Khan's Naya Pakistan where the white colour of our flag is equally dearer to us.

He expressed the hope that the Indian government will act with the same diligence when it comes to the rights of minorities in their country.

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan, taking notice of the alleged abduction of two Hindu girls directed Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar to immediately investigate into the matter of reported abduction of two Hindu girls from Sindh and their shifting to Rahim Yar Khan.
