LAHORE: Hilal-e-Ahmar Punjab (HAP) Chairman Justice (Retd) Sheikh Ahmed Farooq and a delegation led by Shabbir Siddiqui of Tanzeem Mashaikh Pakistan called on Punjab Governor Ch Muhammad Sarwar on Tuesday and discussed various issues.

During the meeting held here at Governor House on Tuesday, Hilal-e-Ahmar Punjab Chairman Justice (Retd.) Sheikh Farooq Ahmed briefed the governor on the performance of the institution and the programmes initiated for public welfare. While assuring the HAP chairman of his full support and cooperation, the governor said the present government’s mission is to ensure strengthening of institutions and provision of health, education and other facilities to people for which all resources will be utilised. Federal and Punjab government will extend their full support to Hilal-e-Ahmar, said Sarwar. He said in addition to the governments, the philanthropists should also cooperate with Hilal-e-Ahmar.

While, in the meeting with delegation led by Shabbir Siddiqui of Tanzeem Mashaikh Pakistan, Ch Sarwar said that vital role of religious parties in forging unity and solidarity in the country cannot be ignored. There is no doubt in it that Ulema and Mashaikh have always united the nation against enemies of the country.

PTI government is also working out reform programmes for seminaries (Madaris) to ensure provision of higher education to students of Madaris as government wants to ensure every Pakistani’s access to education.

Islam teaches us humanity as well as our very existence in this world, and education not only takes a nation to humanism and mannerism but also leads it to righteousness. Lack of education is the major cause of the fall of Muslims today and uniform educational system is indispensable for development. Our government will elimination discriminatory education system and students of Madaris will also have an opportunity to rise through modern education, the governor said.

Presently, he said, Pakistan is faced with grave challenges of terrorism and extremism and government along with Pakistan Army and other security agencies is putting in joint efforts to do away with these challenges. In Sha Allah, we will wipe out completely the menace of terrorism and extremism, and Pakistan is now turning into cradle of peace as anti-Pakistan elements are facing sheer defeat on every front, he added.
