Those converting minorities by force don’t understand Islam, PM Imran Khan
- There was compassion in Riasat-i-Madina, courtesy, and humanity and all these are modern concepts.
- Holy Prophet (PBUH) protected Christians and his life is a role model for us, says Imran Khan.
- Whether the person accepts the message of Allah or not is entirely the jurisdiction of Allah.
- There is only one state that is a model for Muslims and that was the Riasat-i-Madina.
- We’ll protect your (minorities’) places of worship and develop them making it easier for you.
“There was compassion in Riasat-i-Madina, courtesy, and humanity and all these are modern concepts. If you go to the modern states that I think are civilized states, you’ll see so many things that Sarkar-i-Madina did 1400 hundred years ago in Riasat-i-Madina as it was the modern state,” expressed Imran Khan while addressing a ceremony as of today regarding minority day observance.
Imran Khan said that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) protected Christians and his life is a role model for us. Minorities were equal citizens with equal rights because there is no compulsion in Islam, he added.
Even the messengers were not given the authority to force the people. Whether the person accepts the message of Allah or not is entirely the jurisdiction of Allah. But as of now, we’re trying to take this into our hands with forced marriages and forced conversions. We’re killing people for their religion which is un-Islamic, Khan enunciated during today’s address in the Presidential Palace.
“There is only one state that is a model for Muslims and that was the Riasat-i-Madina. It was model for us because it’s foundation was laid by Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH),” said the premier adding that the Quran also teaches us to follow the footsteps of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and that’s because it is very important for Pakistan to understand the vision behind its establishment and without studying the Riasat-i-Madina we can never understand it properly.
“Pakistan was not created to subjugate the dominant Hindu elite and to get replaced with the Muslim elite. When Allama Iqbal was giving the concept of Pakistan he mentioned that when a Muslim rises he goes to the border of Riasat-i-Madina and when he downfalls he get away with the model of Riasat-i-Madina. This is why I want Riasat-i-Madina to get studied properly within the country,” Khan further said.
Khan said: “In Islam, we are to protect non-Muslims. Allah is everyone’s God and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is humanity’s prophet.”
We will do everything we can do for you(Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Kalash community), we’ll protect your places of worship, develop them making it convenient for you adding that we’d protect them from people’s ignorance, he uttered.
