ISLAMABAD: Minister for Religious Affairs Noor-ul-Haq Qadri on Wednesday asked the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F) to refrain from using the matter of Namoos e Risalat (SAWW) in politics.
“The issue of Namoos e Risalat (SAWW) is sensitive, so politics should not be played on this. This is the country of servants of Namoos e Risalat (SAWW) and those who are ready to die for it,” said Noor-ul-Haq Qadri while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.
He said Prime Minister Imran Khan’s thoughts and soul were occupied with building state of Madina. So, this could not be expected of Imran Khan to compromise on the issue of Khatam e Nabuwwat or Namoos e Risalat (SAWW), he maintained.
“I joined the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) after getting inspired by Imran Khan’s personality.
“Being minister for religious affairs and member of the cabinet, I assure Maulana Fazl ur Rehman that if he has any such information that the government is going to make alteration in the law of Namoos e Risalat or Khatam e Nabuwwat then it is wrong and unfounded information,” he said.
The minister for religious affairs said Imran Khan was the first prime minister of Pakistan who mentioned Riyasat e Madina at every platform whether local or international as well as during his private meetings.
At the session of the UN, the PM had said Israel was an oppressor and occupational country. He would not accept Israel under any condition, he said.
“We cannot succeed, if we remain far from state of Madina,” he said adding that people had been gathered in Islamabad on baseless propaganda.
The minister said the PTI was committed to promote religious values and the measures taken by it in the last five years of government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa manifested to this claim.
The PTI government during last tenure in the province, included study of Quran in syllabus of school and college, the chapters of Khatam e Nabuwwat were made part of course, arrangements had been made in educational institutions and public offices for offering Bajama’at Namaz, the provincial assembly passed an act to eradicate interest on loan and provision of solar systems to moques among a number of other steps.
Noor Qadri said PM Khan had asked a number of scholars to tell him what were the features of Riyasat e Madina.
