ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has stressed to follow the principles of morality, rule of law, humanity, and meritocracy as set by the Holy Prophet [Peace Be Upon Him] to make Pakistan an ideal welfare Islamic state.
He was addressing the concluding session of the two-day National Rematul-lil-Aalameen Conference in Islamabad on Tuesday.
The Prime Minister said we will have to follow the principles of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wa Aalehe Wassalam Khatam un Nabiyeen if we want to become a great nation.
He said the dream of true democracy and prosperity will not be materialized without upholding rule of law and bringing the powerful under the law.
Imran Khan said Islam gave rights to every segment of life, including women, slaves and the elderly.
He said the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wa Aalehe Wassalam Khatam un Nabiyeen is our role model and we can become successful by following His Sunnah.
The Prime Minister said Islam also laid great emphasis on the importance of education for everyone, including men and women.
Highlighting the main features of Rehmatul-lil-Aalameen Authority, the Prime Minister said it will comprise an international cell to give a calculated response to any Islamophobia incident in the western world.
He said the authority will be chaired by an Islamic scholar and its aim will be to guide the youth on the path of the last Prophet.
The Prime Minister said Rehmatul-lil-Aalameen scholarships will be given to the youth on merit.
He said our aim is to educate the youth in such a manner that the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wa Aalehe Wassalam Khatam un Nabiyeen becomes the only role model for them.
The Prime Minister said the government is taking steps to take the country towards a welfare state.
He said a programme under the umbrella of Ehsaas will be launched next month to provide targeted subsidy on essential commodities to the marginalized communities.
He said under Kamyab Program, interest free loans will also be given to the people in urban and rural areas.
