It's 2018 And People Are Overjoyed That Harmeet Singh Just Became Pakistan's First Sikh Newscaster

By Ramsha Bhatti | 25 Jun, 2018

After having to battle the masses and global trolls against defamation, Pakistan has a reason to shine brightly amongst all the hate. Our nation is painting a positive image for itself by bringing its minorities – like the Sikh community – to the surface.

We’ve seen preceding cases with the transgender community. 

And now, a Sikh newscaster will soon be seen on our TV screens.

A private news channel, – Public News – has employed Harmeet Singh.

However, this will not be Harmeet’s first ever television appearance.

Harmeet has a brief history of having worked for ATV as a reporter. Manmeet Kaur is another name that rose to popularity, as she was the first female Sikh newscaster in Pakistan. Harmeet, following in her footsteps, is the male newscaster from his religious community.

People can’t help but praise Harmeet!

Many came in to support not just Harmeet, but all the minorities.

Others were glad the Sikh community was being represented.

The fact that unity is being promoted did not go unnoticed.

Some wished him luck

Others had high, yet enticing, hopes.

Yes, please!

This is a huge step in the history of our electronic media.
