Hindus have the highest numbers in legislative bodies of Pakistan



By Rana Tanveer

We recently did a YouTube video on the number of non-Muslim legislators in the legislative bodies of Pakistan i.e., Senate (the Upper House), National Assembly (the Lower House) and the four provincial legislative assemblies. These provincial legislative assemblies include Punjab Assembly, Sindh Assembly, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and Balochistan Assembly.

We explored the official websites of these legislative bodies and found out that there are more Hindu legislators in Pakistan, more than Christians and Sikhs.

This is a kind of explainer video in which we have tried to explain numbers that really matter and the ways to search for credible data. We strongly recommend this video for budding data journalists, students of journalism and anyone interested in data.

Here’s the video.
