ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal said former president Asif Zardari, leader Tehreek-e-Labaik (TLYRA) Khadim Rizvi, and chief Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Tahirul Qadri combined can’t do anything to shake the government.
Speaking at the Polytechnical College of Narowal, he said the current government focuses on education, energy, economy, and peace because true progress will be achieved through educational institutions. He further said that anyone who raises a finger on Khatm-e-Nabuwwat is not a part of Islam.
He stated that Muslims suffer because of the lack of unity among them and that there are people who launch fatwas but there is no one to tell the public why we are still lagging behind.
Giving Baghdad’s example, he said that once more powerful than most countries, Baghdad fell from grace because of religious differences.
He said that if anyone tries to create differences based on language, caste, religion, they are insulting Quaid’s Pakistan adding that the Faizabad protestors looked as if they had been blinded by “junun”, which was a terrifying sight.
He said that Senate’s elections will happen as planned and that no one will be allowed to sabotage the future of Pakistan.
