ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that Pakistan is the only country that was made in the name of Islam after Saudi Arabia.
Addressing the nation, he said that one small group was using derogatory language against state institutions, adding that the reaction on the Supreme Court decision by a small segment of society is not appropriate.
Khan said that Pakistan is the only country in the world that was created on the name of Islam, after Madina and it means there will be no law against the teachings of Islam in the country.
“The language used against the Supreme Court judges, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and other important personalities is intolerable,” he said.
“Pakistan will become a great nation by following the golden principles of state of Madina,” he added.
The prime minister went on to say that Pakistan was the only country in Islamic world that vociferously raised the issue of blasphemous caricatures in Netherlands.
Imran Khan said: “Those who are inciting the people against judges, army and state institutions are doing disservice to the country, adding that the country is already in the grip of financial crisis and the cabinet is working day and night to ameliorate the things.”
He said the attitude of coming to streets against the verdicts of Supreme Court that are not according to their wishes is not right.
