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.
As Pakistanis took notice of this news, they were left overjoyed. After all, it’s a pretty big deal.
People can’t help but praise Harmeet!
Wow what a graceful look. All the best Harmeet 👍🏻

Many came in to support not just Harmeet, but all the minorities.
More power to the minorities. They have suffered way too long.

Nice to see Sikhs shine on Pakistan Media Channels.

This is a huge step in the history of our electronic media.
With minorities progressing in every professional circle in the country, we are putting our best front for the world to see.
There’s so much untapped potential which will no longer be held back by outdated social constructs. The show, along with the channel, is set to be aired following Sunday, June 24, 2018.
Here’s wishing Harmeet all the best for his bright future. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.
