Pakistan is a religious and Islamic state. The religion
followed in Pakistan is Islam with a proportion of 98%
being a peaceful religion; it protects the rights of every individual without
discrimination of any religion. The constitution of Pakistan also protects
the rights of every citizen. In this paper, the researchers have tried to
figure out the meaning of interfaith harmony and how state policies and
state politicians are playing their role in promoting peace and harmony.
Quantitative research method is followed by filling the questionnaires by
the respondents mostly from the South Punjab region. The sample
population was Muslims and Non-Muslims. In the end, researchers
evaluated whether interfaith harmony prevails in Pakistan and nonMuslims and whether they can enjoy the same rights as the Muslim
citizens of Pakistan.
