The entire lecture series is being organized at Rawalpindi Law College.

Samuel Bashir – the Focal Person for the CSJ in Rawalpindi District – and Jayaa Jaggi – the Project Coordinator for the Leadership Program in Rawalpindi District) – are the organizers of the training program on behalf of the Centre for Social Justice.

The first lecture was conducted by the Guest Speaker Arshad Warsi (M.Phil in Governance and Public Policy). He has expertise in human rights, political intolerance, leadership and team building.

According to the CSJ, the lecture series shall seek:

  • To create a platform for cooperation and dialogue on gender, women’s rights issues and minorities rights issues by enhancing the leadership skills of minority political actors.
  • To reduce socio-economic and political exclusion and the sense of marginalization faced by minorities through efforts aimed at increasing understanding of minority-related issues and improved leadership skills.
  • To collect success stories and share with group.
  • To build a better rapport among the party cadre especially with members of minority wings and majority mainstream political leadership.

The religious minorities, who are counted 3.72 percent of the total population, are perpetually vulnerable to legal, socio-economic and political discrimination and exclusion. Moreover, women face difficulties escalating themselves in the leadership role in any area of work. The discriminatory laws or customs against women and religious minorities make the role of women in the leadership more challenging because of their further low socio-economic and political status.

Therefore, the CSJ under the leadership of Mr. Peter Jacob works with the aim of enhancing the scope of social and political inclusion of religious minorities.
