PM Imran vows campaign to prevent blasphemous acts
ISLAMABAD, April 19): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said that he has launched an international campaign to permanently stop the blasphemous activities taking place in the Western world.
Addressing a function after the ground breaking of Margalla Highway Margalla Avenue in Islamabad , the Prime Minister said that his aim was to unite the heads of state of Muslim countries and present a strong case to the Muslim Ummah on the issue of Islamophobic incidents.
“We have already highlighted this issue in the UN and EU forums,” he said. He was convinced that his campaign would change. He said that blasphemous acts against the Holy Prophet (PBUH) have hurt the feelings of Muslims.
The Prime Minister said that this country has been created in the name of Islam and its people love and love their religion and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the most.
The Prime Minister said that the return of our property and infrastructure through blasphemous acts only harms our own people and country.
Referring to the Margalla Highway project, the Prime Minister said that in view of the growing population of the federal capital, more road infrastructure projects need to be prepared in Islamabad.
He assured that the protection of the environment would be taken care of while carrying out such projects. He said that this is the first government which has given serious consideration and priority to tackling the issue of climate change.
Imran Khan said that the highway project would not only ensure the protection of the Margalla Hills National Park but also ensure easy access to Gulistan like beautiful places.
Earlier, Senator Faisal Javed had said in a tweet that Margalla Avenue would connect M-1 to Murree Road and in the first phase he would also connect GT Road to E-10 and Constitution Avenue.
Faisal Javed said that the project was part of the Islamabad master plan prepared in 1960 but it has not been completed yet.
He said that Capital Development Authority is starting work on this project.
