Islamabad: President Dr. Arif Alvi has urged Ulema and Mashaikh to effectively use the platforms of mosque and pulpit to educate people on social issues, including climate change, health, cleanliness and equality.
He was addressing the opening session of National Rehmatul-lil-Alameen Conference in connection with Eid Milad-un-Nabi (SAWW) celebrations in Islamabad on Friday.
The President said Ulema should disseminate information about Clean and Green Pakistan, stunting, hereditary rights of women and communicable diseases.
He said our Prophet Muhammad Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) especially focused on equality in society, rights of the poor, environmental protection and cleanliness. He underlined the need for following the teachings and life of Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) for solution to our all social problems.
The President commended the role played by the religious scholars in the successful fight against Covid-19. Referring to the improvement on the economic front, he was confident Pakistan will emerge as a strong nation.
Arif Alvi strongly condemned the attacks being made on the holy personalities of Islam in the European countries saying they have no realization and regard for the sentiments of Muslims. He said patronage of blasphemous acts in those countries at the state level including the statement of the French President will only create friction in their own societies.
