Moulana Tariq Jamil lavishes praise on PM Imran for envisioning Islamic welfare state
ISLAMABAD – Renowned religious scholar Maulana Tariq Jamil has appreciated the Prime Minister Imran Khan's stance for changing the country into a model welfare state like the state of Madinah.

While addressing a symposium hosted in Supreme Court (SC) on population control, Jamil said that Imran Khan is the first leader who announced to form Pakistan like the welfare state of Madinah.

The religious scholar asserted that the major reasons behind the increasing population are ignorance and poverty, besides social pressure was also another reason.

Maulana Tariq Jameel added mainly the villages and suburb areas of Sindh, Punjab, KPK, and Balochistan face the population growth issue because they don’t have knowledge. He stressed the need to organise such conferences in these far-flung localities.

Maulana Tariq Jamil said that good and bad intentions of the leaders affect the country adding that “The main ingredients of a welfare state are justice, action, and economy.”

The symposium was organised by the Law and Justice Commission was presided over by the CJP with Prime Minister Imran Khan as the chief guest. The event was attended by state ministers, provincial chief ministers, judges of the Supreme Court, ministers and other officials including Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider.
