For Pakistan to become an ideal welfare Islamic state, it must adhere to the principles of ethics, rule of law and humanity laid down by the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم .
Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for adhering to the principles of ethics, rule of law, humanity and meritocracy laid down by the Prophet of Islam to make Pakistan an ideal welfare Islamic state.
He was addressing the concluding session of the two-day National Rima for the World Conference in Islamabad on Tuesday.
The Prime Minister said that if we want to be a great nation, we have to follow the principles of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He said that the dream of true democracy and prosperity would not be fulfilled without upholding the rule of law and bringing the powerful under the rule of law.
Imran Khan said that Islam gave rights to all walks of life, including women, slaves and the elderly. He said that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is our last of the prophets, and we can succeed by following his Sunnah.
Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Islam has emphasized the importance of education for everyone, including men and women.
Highlighting the key features of the Rehmatul-Lil-Aalameen Authority, the Prime Minister said that it would consist of an international cell that would account for any incidents of Islamophobia in the Western world.
He said that the authority would be chaired by an Islamic scholar and it would aim to guide the youth on the path of the last prophet. He said that Rehmatul-Lil-Aalameen Scholarship would be given to the youth on merit. Furthermore, he also said that we aim to educate the youth in such a way that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) becomes the only role model for them.
The Prime Minister said that the government was taking steps to take the country towards a welfare state. He said that a program under the umbrella of Ehsas would be launched next month to provide targeted subsidies on essential items to the backward classes.
He said that under the successful program, interest-free loans would also be given to the people of urban and rural areas.
