January 21, 2021

Dr. Masoom Yasinzai (Rector International Islamic University): Prime Minister Imran Khan has great vision to make Pakistan a welfare state. It is appreciable that we have educational institutions where people from all sects study without any fear and discrimination. The religious leaders have a key role to play to spread religious harmony and tolerance in the society. It is need of the hour to get united under the umbrella of Islam. We can cope with the future challenges through unity only. Religious leaders are the torchbearers of the society and it is their responsibility to spread the true message of Islam.

Dr. Qibla Ayaz (Former Chairman of Council of Islamic Ideology): Islamic scholars have played a vital role to eradicate the menace of sectarian violence and extremism from Pakistan. The incumbent government has once again urged the religious leaders to come forward and cooperate with the government in creating an atmosphere of religious harmony and safeguard the rights of non-Muslims living in Pakistan. It is highly appreciable that minorities living in Pakistan are well protected and are free to practice their faith unlike neighboring India. The dream of making Pakistan "Riyast-e-Madina" cannot be materialized without active involvement of Ulema.

Dr. Dost Muhammad (Islamic Scholar): It is appreciable that incumbent political leadership of the country realizes the significance of Islamic scholars for peace and stability. Pakistan is facing a crook enemy. Islam is the religion of peace, love and tolerance. Pakistan got independence in the name of peace, justice and religious harmony. It is our responsibility to avoid sectarianism and violence. The religious scholars hold great responsibility to maintain unity among the nation. We cannot be divided in the name of religion.

Dr. Faisal Sultan (Special Assistant to PM on Health): China has fully cooperated with Pakistan in the critical post Covid-19 situation. It is highly appreciable that China is providing Corona vaccination to Pakistan. The incumbent government is taking all corrective measures to ensure the availability of vaccine to the people as soon as possible. Pakistan has successfully overcome the crises of Covid-19 pandemic.
