NOWSHERA: Defence Minister Pervez Khattak said Pakistan have found true leadership in shape of Prime Minister Imran Khan after Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
‘The mission of PTI is to lead country towards self sustainability and achieve a respectable position for the country among comity of nations,’ the state-run wire service quoted him as saying while speaking to a delegation of ulema.
Khattak said all the decisions related to religious seminaries would be made in consultation with administration of Wafaq-ul-Madaris and Ulema belonging to all schools of thought.
He said the PTI government was not against seminaries but it is making concerted efforts to bring Madaris into national mainstream.
He stated that Khan respected seminaries as they were bastions of Islam due to their role in preaching of Islam.
The defence minister said that previous government of PTI facilitated religious seminaries to include them in national mainstream by establishing laboratories of science and computer in Madaris in the province and now Imran Khan wants to promote true image of the country and Islam in the world with the support of Ulema.— NNI
