ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday announced the establishment of a Rehmatul-Lil-Aalamin Authority, “which would portray before the world a true image of Islam besides carrying out research on Seeratun Nabi (SAWW)”.
Addressing the Ashra-e-Rehmatullil-Aalamin (SAWW) conference in Islamabad, the premier said the proposed body would comprise Islamic scholars of international repute who would help acquaint the children and elders about the teachings of Holy Prophet (SAWW).
The premier also announced that he would be the patron-in-chief of the newly proposed body, which would be headed by a chairman and supervised by an international advisory board. “The government is already looking for a chairman who should have a vast knowledge on Seeratun Nabi (SAWW),” he added.
Giving details about the Authority, the prime minister said that the authority would monitor curriculum being taught at schools and organize research in universities on the true message of Islam in light of the teachings of the Holy Prophet [SAWW].
He said the objective of the body was to tell the world particularly the West which does not know that Islam was a religion of love and humanity, besides portraying the teaching of Holy Prophet (SAWW).
PM Imran further announced that an animated series would be made to introduce Islamic culture to country’s children. “Islam has its own cultural values that need to be taught to our children to protect them from evils like sex crimes,” he said, adding that the authority will also remain vigilant of any blasphemous content being shared on the media.
Prime Minister Imran Khan also emphasized on teaching the life of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad [SAWW] for a successful and progressive society. “We cannot uplift our country unless we follow the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (SAWW),” he said, adding that following the principles for the state of Madina was imperative for a vibrant society.
Referring to the corruption, the premier said that as a society we need to nurture the youth so that they fight against corruption. He said that our real role models are not taught in schools. “Have we ever followed the Prophet’s (PBUH) life? We have Quran in our houses but we never bother reading it,” he added.
He said that Pakistan was a big ideology and a big dream. “If we want to lift Pakistan then it’s necessary we follow the Sunnah,” he concluded.
