Pakistani nation needed to follow vision of State of Medina: PM Imran

Islamabad (Staff Report/Agencies): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday reiterated his commitment to build Pakistan on the model of State of Madina, ensuring rights to people, rule of law and provision of facilities to citizens at equal level.

Addressing a ceremony held in connection with Minority Day at the Aiwan-e-Sadr titled "One land, one flag & one nation", PM Khan said holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) always raised voice for the rights of deprived segments of the society including the minorities. He said the life and teachings of Holy Prophet serve as a guiding principle for us as to how to treat with the minorities.

He said the government is committed to open Kartarpur Corridor for Sikh community on 550th birth anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.

The Prime Minister regretted that when the government is implementing law against the past rulers, who took the country's loan from 6,000 billion rupees to 30,000 billion rupees, they are raising hue and cry.

The event was also attended by representatives of different communities including Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Baha'i and Kalash.

Pakistan declared Minority Day in connection with the Quaid-e-Azam's address to the legislative assembly on August 11, 1947 where he stated that all citizens were free to go to their worship places without distinction of their religions or faiths.
