JHELUM: Mental slavery is far more dangerous than physical slavery, said Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday afternoon, as he addressed a ceremony at the Al-Qadir University.
The prime minister was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of Al-Qadir University’s academic blocks, where he spoke about the importance of breaking the shackles of slavery.
“Unfortunately, due to colonialism, Muslims suffered from mental slavery around the world,” he said.
The prime minister emphasized speaking the truth and dispensing justice. “Speaking truth was a quality of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) before he was appointed a Messenger.”
PM Imran Khan said he had always aimed at creating institutions in Pakistan that would implement Islam in its true spirit.
He spoke about education at length, lamenting that there were no universities researching the lives of the Muslim leaders, warriors, scholars, and reformers.
“Islam and Science were both working alongside each other,” he said. “There was harmony between them. Read Al-Biruni and others, they had a strong connection to Allah,” he added.
