Earlier, while greeting the Hindu community on the occasion of Holi, Sharif had asserted that forcible conversion and destruction of worship places of other religions is a crime in Islam and in Pakistan, adding that "no one can force others to adopt a certain religion".

The resolution was moved by PML (N) legislator and son in law of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Capital (r) Muhammad Safdar.

The premier addressed a gathering organised in Karachi in connection with Holi which was attended by Governor of Sindh and federal ministers including Saad Rafique.

He said Islam considers forced conversation as crime.

PM Nawaz said that the people are not supposed to decide upon others' afterlife and they are liable to make the world a heaven for all.

He said Pakistan was created on the basis of equal rights to all communities with complete religious freedom.

Sharif said that it is imperative to move forward with a unified voice for the development and progress of Pakistan.

"The state of Pakistan is bound to fulfil Quaid-e-Azam's (Jinnah) pledges with religious minorities and no negligence will be tolerated in this regard", he said.

In January, Sharif inaugurated the restoration of an ancient Hindu temple complex in Punjab, a gesture seen by many as an appeal to the Muslim nation's minority communities and an attempt to soften the country's image overseas.

Nawaz Sharif said peace has greatly been restored in Karachi and in future, stringent laws will be made to take the lawbreakers to the task.

The Prime Minister demanded off the people to not decry holy places of any faith.

He also said that the federally ruling party would contest General Elections 2018 in Karachi among all cities of Sindh with full zest.

The premier noted that since 2013 the law and order situation had improved in Karachi and other parts of Sindh and there had been a marked decrease in cases of Hindu traders and businessmen being kidnapped for ransom.
