August 5, 2017: A Hindu politician has been announced into the highest level of government in Pakistan for the first time after around 20 years in the predominantly Islamic country.

Darshan Lal landed a place at the top table in the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party after a cabinet reshuffle by new Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

A government official said that Mr Darshan Lal will head coordination between four Pakistani provinces.

Mr Abbasi was sworn in as Pakistan’s new prime minister on Wednesday after former leader Nawaz Sharif was toppled last week following a corruption scandal.

The new PML-N leader has doubled the size of the cabinet in the re-shuffle on Friday to 47 ministers and filled the roles with aides and allies of Mr Sharif to boost the clout of his government.
