President Dr Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan have said the government was striving to develop Pakistan as a Welfare state based on the principles of the state of Madina.

In their messages to the Nation on Eid Milad-Un-Nabi (SAW), they said the government was making economic and social reforms in various sectors which could bring about positive outcomes very soon.

Greeting the countrymen, they President urged the citizens particularly the religious scholars to play their role to make Pakistan a Welfare State.

The President and the Prime Minister said the Holy Prophet (SAW) was a unique personality who always taught to change enmity into love and estrangement into unity.

They said within a short span of time some 1400 years ago, The Holy Prophet (SAW) had established such a welfare state which was later opted as a role model by the Western States.

They said the welfare states of current era had in fact got guidance from the very welfare state established by The Holy Prophet (SAW) but unfortunately, the Muslims could not seek such guidance so far after passage of 1400 years.

The President and the Prime Minister also prayed to Allah almighty for the Muslims to follow the teachings of The Holy Prophet (SAW) and put the country on the path of progress and prosperity.
