ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan have extended their hearty greetings on the auspicious occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi (Peace Be Upon Him), which marks the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
In his message, President Arif Alvi said the government is striving to develop Pakistan as a welfare state based on the principles of the State of Madina.
He said the government is making economic and social reforms in various sectors which could bring about positive outcomes very soon.
The president urged the citizens particularly the religious scholars to play their role to make Pakistan a welfare state.
On the other hand, Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his message, said the Prophet (PBUH) established a welfare state and a role model society on the earth by better management.
The premier said the thought of the welfare state was, first-ever, introduced by Islam in human history.
PM Khan said the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and Khulafa-e-Rashideen practically materialized this thought in the first Hijri century.
He said the birth of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) marked the end of a history of inhumanity, oppression, tyranny, ignorance, injustice and deviation from the right path and purified civilization by inculcating characteristics like human dignity and forgiveness.
