ISLAMABAD: Minister for Finance Muhammad Ishaq Dar Saturday said there would be no compromise on the dignity and respect of Last Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him).
Addressing the “Khatam-e-Nabuwat Conference”, organized by the custodians of Golra Sharif Shrine here, he said,”We can sacrifice our lives, wealth and everything we possess, for the dignity and respect of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).”
He said there would be no change in the blasphemy law as Pakistan came into being in the name of Allah and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Pakistan was the only country whose foundation were laid on Islam and Kalma Tayyaba, he added.
Ishaq Dar said no one could deny that the Holy Quran is the last book revealed by the Almighty and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the last Prophet, and it is part of the faith of every Muslim.
“We will sacrifice our lives but make no compromise on the respect and dignity of the Prophet (PBUH,” he vowed.
Dar said Muslims could succeed in this life and the life hereafter only by following the teachings of the Last Prophet (PBUH).
He said the people, who were disloyal and betrayed the country, had vanished as Pakistan itself was a blessing of Allah, who gifted it to the Muslims because of their love for the Prophet (PBUH).
Thus there was need to make the country a fort of Islam and for which all would have to work together day and and night in accordance with the teachings of the Last Prophet (PBUH), he added.
Ishaq Dar said the objective of Pakistan becoming a nuclear power was for the defence of Muslim Ummah and it would play its leadership role for the progress and development of all the Islamic countries.
The minister appreciated the Custodian of the Golra Shrine for organizing the conference following the footsteps of his forefathers.
The conference was an annual programme held at the Shrine which had been initiated by the Pir of Golra Syed Mahir Ali Shah to falsify claims of a liar about prophithood during his time, he added.
Religious scholars and Ulema from across the country and abroad, including India, Afghanistan, the United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates attended the event.—APP
