ISLAMABAD:

Minister of State for Climate Change Zartaj Gul on Wednesday urged the young people of the federal capital to support Lift Islamabad Group Peace Project drive of signing 10 million peace signatures to set a Guinness World Record.

She said that Pakistan would achieve this target to present the positive perspective of the country and show the world that Pakistanis were a peace loving nation.

The state minister was addressing the inauguration of the Peace Signature campaign.

Zartaj said that youth had a key role in the country’s prosperity as they had to set their course in line with Allama Iqbal’s philosophy and teachings.

Youth, she said, had to become Iqbal’s hawkish visionary character associated with traits of dignity, integrity and valour that were not going to compromise their honour and integrity for worldly pleasures.

She said the Lift Islamabad Group Peace Project’s initiative was an innovative and a propitious step towards promoting the true picture of Pakistan. “EU Disinfo Lab Report ‘Indian Chronicles’ has highlighted the Israel and India nexus to taint Pakistan’s image at global forums for the past 15 years.”

Prime Minister Imran Khan has highlighted that India is exploiting sectarian and social issues to create chaos in the country. The nation has to remain united and avoid sharing or responding to negative hateful content based on racist and religious biases on social media.”

The minister of state also signed the peace resolution and expressed her felicitations to the Lift Islamabad Group Peace Project leaders for their initiative.
