Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Pakistan is back on track to implement the principles set by Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah for the establishment of Madina-like welfare state under his government.

In a series of tweets on the occasion of Pakistan Day, the premier lamented that so far the country had not been able to achieve its potential “because we lost sight of our Quaid's vision”.

“Today Pakistan is back on track to realise that ideal by bringing the powerful under rule of law and setting up a welfare state with our programmes of Ehsaas, Panagahs and health cards,” he wrote in a tweet.

The premier in another tweet said that the Muslims became the greatest civilisation in couple of decades after the Holy Prophet (PBUH) set up the first welfare state in Madina.

“[The state was] based on rule of law, meritocracy, compassion & tolerance; & where quest for knowledge was made a sacred duty. In a couple of decades Muslims became the greatest civilisation for next few centuries,” he added.

PM Imran went on to say that when the Muslims moved away from these guiding principles, their civilisation decayed and declined. “81 years ago today our Quaid gave us the dream for Pakistan as envisioned by the great philosopher and poet Allama Muhammad Iqbal and based on these Riyasat-i-Madina principles.”
