Secularism is against pakistanis religious and cultural values. This person should go become a politician in the west if he wants to be in a secular society, we do not want people like him.

He is trying to make Pakistan more welcoming to other religions. I don’t see the problem with that ? I understand that most of the Pakistani Christians here have the same values as the Muslims, but do the Muslim candidates really do anything useful ? There are so many so-called Muslim politicians in Pakistan that are regular alcohol drinkers and are corrupt. Just because they plaster the word “Islam” and “Muslims” in their campaigns doesn’t mean they are for the people.
To make other religions welcome by tarnishing the faith or values of the majority is absurd. It is like if a Muslim tried to become prime minister in england to implement sharia.
The correct solution is to provide better protection for the 3-4% of Pakistanis who identify with other religions. Not to remove Islam from the government.
The wrongs of other politicians does not make this man any better. In fact he is worse. He tries to take away people's Islam, whilst the others just try to take away our money. Religion is the most important thing to a Muslim. We will not become a place like the old Turkey where secularists came to power and banned hijabs and banned the call to the prayer or places like the central asian countries where secularists came to power and once again banned hijabs and banned teaching religion to our children and persecuted and killed those who were religious Muslims.
These secularists come to power with words of love and saying they will protect minorities. They come and then end up persecuting the majority who disagrees with them.

Wahhabism at its finest. Europe and the world should ban the Islamic branch of Wahhabism before it takes over, seriously. It gives Muslims a bad name and it's spread is funded directly by Saudi Arabia. It's an extreme and intolerant form of Islam that most Muslims themselves detest but unfortunately is spreading like wild fire.
The socially conservative group of Pakistan (and India + other countries for that matter) tend to resist change and in Pakistan it is more radical than in other places. If more support for secular and underrepresented parts of society is raised, then the conservatism that stifles Pakistan's cultural progression can be combatted and things like this would not happen
