Prime Minister Imran Khan has vowed to establish an exemplary rule of law in the country and said that everyone, irrespective of their status in society, will be equal before the law. 

“We will have to make the powerful abide by the laws of this country, otherwise, the system will never be corrected,” the premier said while addressing the Rehmatul-lil-Alameen conference in Islamabad on Tuesday on the occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi.

The premier praised the Holy Prophet (PUBH) and said that due to his teachings, Muslims were able to achieve a lot. 

“The Holy Prophet stressed Muslims to seek knowledge, even if they have to go to China for the purpose. By acquiring knowledge, Muslims became the greatest scientists of the world in the past,” the premier added.

He said that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was sent to this world as a blessing to the mankind. 

“Whoever follows in the footsteps of the Holy Prophet (PUBH) will succeed in life,” he said.

“Allah has promised that whoever follows the sunnah of his messenger will never fail,” Prime Minister Imran continued.

He also talked about the prevalent corruption among politicians and said that even those nations that were attacked with atomic bombs survived and rose again but countries where corruption prevails cannot progress.

“You can’t destroy a nation’s principles through bombing, the premier said, adding that a nation is not poor with resources but it becomes poor without law and justice.

He went on to say that in order to make democracy a success, every individual in a nation has to have high moral standards. 

The prime minister then expressed his concern about the youth of the country and said that bringing them towards the path of righteousness is a challenge.

He said that parents are unable to take away mobile phones from children by force and cannot block their social media.

“Although there is no compulsion in religion, we can show them the right way. We can, at least, train our children, talk about the bad effects of [western] culture,” he said.

Premier Imran also talked about growing sexual crimes in the country and said that it has become a “big threat.”

“The family system is slowly breaking down due to sexual crimes in Britain. When pornography becomes common in a society, the family system breaks down,” he said.
