Vowing to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state in true letter and spirit, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday stressed the need for following the teachings of the holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in order to achieve salvation in this world as well as in the life hereafter, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing the National Rehmatulil Alameen Conference in Islamabad, he said that rule of law was must for a state to survive and progress.
He said unless there were justice and rule of law in a country, there could be no prosperity.
Prime minister vowed to fight for justice and rule of law in the country till his last breath. “As long as those who are at the top are not held accountable for corruption, the society could not change,” he opined.
PM Imran stressed the need for guiding the nation, particularly the youth, to a right path. “All I want is a proper upbringing of the country’s youth,” he underscored.
He recalled that in 60s Pakistan was going great guns. “But sadly, later it came downhill,” he regretted.
The prime minister added that unless the nation reconnected itself to the Islamic ideology, there was no way out.
He also cautioned against growing vulgarity in the country, particularly sex crimes, just like what had happened in the West in 60s. “Vulgarity has destroyed the social fabric of western countries as more and more couples are breaking up,” he said, and added, “We have to save our nation from this culture.”
PM Imran said never ever in the history children had such gadgets in their hands which they had now in the shape of mobile phones.
He also gave details of the Rehmatulil Alameen Authority to be set up by the government under which syllabuses at educational institutions and media transmissions would also be monitored.
He informed that the Authority would also announce scholarships for students.
He said the greatest desire he had was to make the youth of Pakistan lead their lives in accordance with the Islamic teachings.
He told the gathering that he would soon take steps to provide relief to the people in the form of subsidies and delivery of cash. “Cash will be handed to over 10 million families under the ‘Ehsaas Programme’,” the prime minister said, and added, “Everybody in Punjab will have a health card by March next year (2022).”
