Pogrom of Muslims in India continues: PM
Imran says destiny of country changes when police perform efficiently
Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter on Saturday to denounce pogram of Indian Muslims at the hands of what he called the fascist Modi government. Sharing a news report on agitation against India’s controversial citizenship law on his Twitter handle, the prime minister wrote: “Indian police brutality reaches new lows as its pogrom of Muslims in India continues as part of fascist Modi Govt’s ethnic cleansing agenda
The prime minister in a tweet the other day had also expressed concern over India’s treatment of Muslims, asking how long the world will remain silent while the fascist Modi regime indulges in state terrorism. In a statement on the microblogging site on Dec 21, the premier had said:“ I have been warning the int[ernational] community of this for some time & am reiterating again: if India does such an operation to divert attention from its domestic chaos plus whip up war hysteria to mobilise Hindu nationalism, Pak will have no option but to give a befitting response.” He said over the last five years of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, India has been moving towards “Hindu Rashtra with its Hindutva Supremacist fascist ideology.”
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday formally inaugurated the Model Police Station in Mianwali and said that the destiny of a country changes when the police do its work efficiently.
Addressing the ceremony at Mianwali City Police Station, he said that the politics of “thana-katchery” culture has severely damaged the country but the model police are trying bringing a reform. “Model Police Station is a beginning to reform the police,” he expressed. He asserted that the politicians used to commend police personnel on an unfair merit and for personal benefits. “The past rulers used to control the police stations and courts which have hurt the order of the country,” he said, adding that Punjab police will become an example for everyone. Prime Minister said setting up of model police stations is important for public welfare, and it reflects the new thinking to improve state of affairs.
PM Imran went on to say that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government freed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) police from political pressure in the previous government. He expressed hope to see reforms in Punjab police same as KP police. “I wish to see Punjab police on the par with KP police”, he added.
He said police should provide sense of protection and peace to the public.
He viewed that the provision of a friendly atmosphere to the people at the police stations could make a huge difference. “We have developed wrong habits particularly due to the bad governance during last 30 years”, he said, adding that the nation’s progress was linked with the confidence given by the police to the needy and distressed people through friendly atmosphere by doing away with the old mindset and culture.
PM Imran lauded the IG Police for establishing the model police station equipped with token calling system and other modern facilities. The premier said the remodeling of the old police station was very significant where the people would get their complaints addressed through a modern token calling system instead of looking for some references to approach the police officers.
Establishing model police stations in Punjab is part of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s initiative and vision of justice for all. On his arrival at the model police station, Punjab police presented guard of honor to the Prime Minister. Chief Minister Usman Buzdar also accompanied the Prime Minister.
IG Punjab briefed the Prime Minister about the working of Model Police stations. Under the initiative, 29 model police stations have been set up throughout the province where CCTV cameras have also been installed to monitor the performance of police.
Under the initiative, a helpline 8787 has also been established for registering complaints and a Superintendent of Police will be appointed in every district for dealing with complaints. Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated Huawei ICT Lab at NAMAL Institute Mianwali. The Prime Minister was briefed about state of the art information and communications technology facility at NAMAL Institute.
