While addressing a condolence reference held here in the memory of eminent spiritual leader Khawaja Pir Rehmat Karim, he said no law would be framed in Pakistan against Islam and the ideology of Pakistan and that they would make the state of Pakistan a model of Madina State. Hundreds of devotees, including prominent leaders and scholars, attended the moot.

The minister said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had exercised his right to represent the Pakistani nation not only in the country but also at the international level on the platform of the United Nations.
He maintained that the PM had taken practical steps to stop the desecration of all the prophets and holy figures at the international level.

Qadri also said Pir Rehmat Karim was a great spiritual leader and his philanthropy was ideal. The valuable services rendered by him for the promotion and propagation of Islam would be remembered for long, he added.
