Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for continued co-operation of religious scholars to thwart the “conspiracies” creating division and discord in the Muslim Ummah.
He was speaking with a delegation of religious scholars in Islamabad yesterday.
The prime minister said that religious scholars have a pivotal role to transform Pakistan into a genuine Islamic welfare state.
Commending the role played by the ulema to cope with sectarianism and extremism, the prime minister said that the process of consultations with religious scholars will continue in order to take their guidance to address the challenges faced by the country.
The religious scholars were appreciative of the prime minister for representing the feelings of the Pakistani nation and the entire Muslim Ummah at the forum of the UN, taking a firm stance on the sanctity of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the issue of Islamophobia.
They also hailed Khan’s categorical and unequivocal stance regarding Israel.
Alluding to the prime minister’s vision of transforming Pakistan as per the principles of State of Madina, the religious scholars said they stand shoulder to shoulder with him on the matter and assured full co-operation to turn Pakistan into an Islamic welfare state.
They also appreciated the government’s efforts to bring improvements in the seminaries.
Commending the government’s steps for the protection of minorities, the religious scholars said that at present, minorities living in Pakistan consider themselves to be safe, unlike the minorities in a neighbouring country.
The religious scholars said the Islamic world sees Prime Minister Khan as a genuine leader of the Muslim Ummah.
