Addressing the All Pakistan Naat Competition here at National Broadcasting House on Thursday, she said that personality and life of our prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is a guideline for us.
She said the Prime Minister Imran Khan is determined to make Pakistan a welfare state to uplift the general masses.
The Special Assistant said that Pakistan, Turkey and Malaysia will jointly establish a TV channel to promote real face of Islam before the world. She said such gatherings provide us an opportunity to end hatred and spread love.
Dr. Firdous said that our faith is incomplete without believing in Muhammad PBUH as last prophet of God. She urged the private media to follow the footsteps of Radio Pakistan and PTV by arranging such programmes to promote national thought.
The Special Assistant also congratulated Radio Pakistan and PTV for arranging Naat competition every year.
The Special Assistant said that Radio Pakistan has been arranging this event since 1983 to highlight different aspects of life of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). She urged youth to study the life of the Holy Prophet to adopt the living style according to the Quran and Sunnah.
She said Muslims can reach to God only following the noble steps of the Last Messenger (PBUH). She said Radio Pakistan and PTV have an important role in the development of modern media. She said these two institutions are also playing imperative role to end hatred.
The Special Assistant said that the government is working to eliminate corruption from the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan and it is committed to uplift the living standards of the people.
