ISLAMABAD:

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday emphasised that using force was not a solution to eliminate extremism, rather instilling moral and ethical values in the younger generation would create a moderate, tolerant and progressive society.

“The main objective of establishing Rehmatul Lil Alameen Authority is to raise the moral standards of our society,” he said added.

The prime minister was answering a question about extremism and rising number of crimes against women and children during an interactive session with the officers participating in the 115th National Management Course (NMC).

Discussing the need for a single national curriculum, he stated that parallel education systems have created class distinctions. “The government intends to have a core curriculum adopted throughout the country so that children get a strong base.”

Thereafter, it was the choice of students to specialise in whatever field they wanted, he said and added the authority will conduct research and provide guidance based on the life of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

The prime minister said that children have access to every kind of material through mobile phones and to an immature mind such content gives way to misconceptions and extremism.

“The government will provide an alternative to our youth, i.e., the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), including respect, dignity, family values, ethics and morality,” he added.

While addressing the officer of 115th National Management Course officers, the prime minister said that civil servants bear a huge responsibility of serving the public and striving for welfare of the masses.

He emphasised that as decision makers there will always be two choices for them. “One is the easy way of earning money and corruption that leads to destruction and the other is to earn respect and growth which is slow and full of challenges,” he remarked.
