President, PM expresses resolve to make country truly democratic, welfare state
Pakistan back on track to dwell ideal of Riyasat-e-Madina: PM
President Dr. Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan in their separate messages on the occasion of Pakistan Day have urged the people to continue efforts to make the country a truly democratic and the welfare state.
President Dr. Arif Alvi in his message reaffirmed the resolve to make Pakistan an economically stronger and prosperous country.
He urged the people to remember the Kashmiri brethren, who are being subjected to the worst form of repression and state-sponsored terrorism.
The President said the world must take notice of blatant human rights violations being committed by India in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said the key to durable peace in South Asia is the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions.
In his message, Prime Minister Imran Khan reaffirmed his commitment to making Pakistan a humane, progressive, and prosperous state akin to Riyasat-e-Madina based on rule of law, meritocracy, egalitarianism and compassion.
He said 23rd March 1940 was a momentous occasion when the Muslims of the Sub-Continent decided to establish a separate homeland to free themselves from the shackles of oppression and slavery of the Hindutva mindset.
The Prime Minister also expressed solidarity with the innocent people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir who are being subjected to worst form atrocities.
He said we salute their courage and will continue to support them morally, politically and diplomatically for realization of their right to self-determination under relevant UNSC Resolutions.
Prime Minister Imran Khan says, today Pakistan is back on track to realise the ideal of Riyasat-e-Madina by bringing the powerful under rule of law and establishing a welfare state through Ehsaas, Panagahs and health cards programs.
In a tweet today (Tuesday), the Prime Minister said 15 centuries ago our Holy Prophet (Sallalaho Alaihe Wa Alehi Wasallam) set up the first welfare state in Madina based on rule of law, meritocracy, compassion and tolerance and where quest for knowledge was made a sacred duty.
Imran Khan said when Muslims moved away from these guiding principles, their civilization decayed and declined.
The Prime Minister said 81 years ago, our Quaid gave us the dream for Pakistan as envisioned by the great philosopher and poet Allama Iqbal, based on these Riyasat-e-Madina principles.
He said so far we have been unable to achieve our great potential because we lost sight of our Quaid’s vision.
