PM Imran Accuses Some Political and Religious Parties of Misusing Islam

On Monday, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, talked about how unfortunate it is that Islam is being misused by some political and religious parties in the country. 

He went on to add that these parties do not realize that by using religion brings harm to Pakistan itself. The premier made these statements while attending the ground-breaking ceremony held for the Islamabad-Margalla Highway. 

As per Khan, he is regretful that these acts do not have an impact on others rather, cause substantial damage to the country. He recalled how Pakistan was made in the name of Islam but, people continue to misuse religion for personal gain. 

The Prime Minister, by saying this, was referring to the recent protests that took place in the country. These demonstrations turned violent and were carried out by the now proscribed outfit, Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP). 

The leader expressed sadness at the fact that Pakistani citizens do not harbor the same affection for the religion and the Holy Prophet (PBUH) as people in other parts of the world. 

PM Imran asserted that there is no surefire way to identify the individuals who love the Holy Prophet (PBUH). However, he added, the misuse of Islam in such a manner has no benefit for the religion itself. He promised the people that the government will do its best to campaign against the actions of such religious extremists and political parties. In his words, he will also take this campaign international to ensure that no country in the West disrespects the beloved Prophet (PBUH) either. 

Khan reiterated that there is no point in vandalizing and demonstrating in the country itself. He added that destroying public property in Pakistan will make no difference to the country where the original crime is taking place. 

According to the premier, all the heads of other Islamic states need to come together and take the case of the disrespect of religion to the European Union and the United Nations. He believes that such measures will help bring about change in the Western countries as well.
