While India and Pakistan’s severed ties grab the headlines often, here is one monumental move that will make you realize the hidden love between two nations.

Pakistan has now agreed for the first time to declare a holiday on Holi, Diwali, and Easter for the minority community.

This monumental move was resolved by Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani, a lawmaker in the National Assembly.

Vankwani, who is also patron-in-chief of the Pakistan Hindu Council, thought that the announcement would help Pakistan make a good image among its minority communities.

He also said that it since countries like USA and India observed holidays for Eid and Muharram, it only made sense that Pakistan should do the same.

Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid said that respective offices that employed people from minority communities could grant holidays.

He said, ““Pakistan already has one of the highest rates of public holidays compared to the rest of the world”.

Federal Minister for Laws and Justice Pervaiz Rashid said that the number of holidays in Pakistan was more than in any other country.

And he also added that all Pakistani enjoy the same privileges when in came to celebrating each others joys and sorrows and no discrimination was made on the basis of faith or religion.

An absolutely, absolutely wonderful move by the Pakistan government, isn’t it?
