KUALA LUMPUR (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan termed that the elite class in Pakistan considered itself as above the law on Tuesday.
The prime minister stated while addressing to an event in Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies (IAIS) in Kuala Lampur. He also said that without any vision the nations cannot sustain and die eventually. “My vision for Pakistan is the same as the vision of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Iqbal,” he maintained.
“Unfortunately, we have left out from our priorities. My government resolves to develop Pakistan as a true Islamic welfare state, saying that the state of Madina was role model for World,” Imran Khan explained. He said his government is committed to establish rule of law and fight the mafias, which made the rich richer and the poor poorer.
The prime minister said that he laid the foundation of Islamic welfare state despite knowing the fact that the country was going through the worst economic situation. He said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government introduced Sehat scheme and distributed Sehat Insaf Cards among 6 million families.
PM Khan maintained that the PTI government made 200 shelter homes for people and provided food to poor people under Ehsaas Langar Scheme and awarded scholarships to students under Kamyab Jawan Program. “We have also started a poverty alleviation program known as Ehsaas Program to uplift marginalized sections of society,” he added.
Islamophobia in world
He also regretted that Islamophobia grew in the world due to ineffective efforts of the Muslim leadership to counter it. He said the Muslim leadership should have effectively presented the true image of Islam, which has no connection with terrorism.
He said Pakistan, Malaysia and Turkey have agreed on efforts to correct the image of Islam infusing media so that not only the Western world but the Muslim children also know about the real history and face of Islam.
Earlier today addressing a joint news conference along with the Malaysian counterpart Mahathir Mohamad, Imran Khan
expressed his commitment that Pakistan and Malaysia both will work together to address the challenges facing by the Muslim Ummah.
The prime minister said that impression of division between Muslim Ummah from Kuala Lumpur Summit is completely wrong.
He thanked Mahathir Mohamad for the standing by Pakistan on Kashmir issue and speaking against the injustices being perpetrated by Indian forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK).
India threatened Pakistan for supporting Kashmir cause
Imran Khan said unfortunately a very radical and extremist government has taken over India which has put the Kashmiri people in an open prison. He also regretted that India also threatened Pakistan for supporting the Kashmir cause and cut their palm oil exports from the country.
The prime minister mentioned said Pakistan will do its best to compensate for that by importing the Malaysian palm oil. He said that given the close affinity between the peoples of both the countries, there is great scope of further improving trade and economic relations between Pakistan and Malaysia.
PM to attend the next Kuala Lumpur Summit
Imran khan said the idea is to develop a much closer relationship and also doing joint ventures in the defence sector. He said that he would like to attend the next Kuala Lumpur Summit. He said this will not affect Pakistan’s relationship with other Muslim countries. He said the forum will help promote unity amongst the Muslim Ummah.
Muslim countries to educate about true teachings of Islam
He said it is important for the Muslim countries to educate them about the true teachings of Islam. He said we are working on a joint media that not only projects the positive image of Islam and fight Islamophobia but also educate the young Muslim generation about Islam.
