. “Similarly, a nation can become great only by following the golden principles of state of Madina.
“It is a miracle that two superpowers of that time surrendered to state of Madina just six years after the death of Prophet (PBUH),” the premier said. He said by following the idyllic rules of state of Madina, the Muslims ruled over the world for more than a thousand years.
He said his emphasis on creation of a state like Madina and urging the youth to learn from the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is due to his lifelong experiences.
Will bring reforms in education system to teach children

He underscored the importance of holding research in our universities on the life and the principles of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Imran Khan said Pakistan, Malaysia and Turkey have decided to jointly create films depicting great Islamic leaders in order to familiarize our population with our great history. “We need to understand what were the reasons of Muslims' rise and fall in history,” he added.
Quoting Allama Muhammad Iqbal, the premier said Muslims gained success in the world when they followed the principles of state of Madina and went to decline when they forgot them.

a Muslim from followers of other religion.
Pakistan will become great nation by following state of Madina
