PM Imran Khan makes a pledge with minorities of Pakistan
*ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed on Monday to protect minorities’ places of worship in the country and develop them. *
Addressing a Minority Day celebration at President House, he said initially, the Hindu elite dominated this are but we moved them aside and established the Muslim elite. But that wasn’t why Pakistan was made, he said.
Muslims rise when they follow the path of the State of Madina (Madina ki Riyasat), he quoted Allama Iqbal as saying. We are following this, said the premier, adding that they are starting chairs at universities so people get PhDs and scholarships to understand the true concept.
But one of the main concepts of the State of Madina was fairness, he said. It was based on the fact that we are all the children of Hazarat Adam (pbuh), he said, adding that there was religious freedom in the State of Madina as well.
