The ‘Message of Pakistan’ which is a great national narrative is loved not only in Pakistan but all over the world, which has made significant progress in eradicating terrorism, extremism and sectarianism. He said enemies want to create chaos and unrest in Pakistan, we have to thwart the nefarious intentions of the enemy. In the current situation Pakistan cannot tolerate any unrest and chaos. It is the responsibility of the Ulema to play their role in maintaining peace.
All our security agencies have thwarted many conspiracies of the enemy and will continue to thwart them. The Pakistan Army has made historic sacrifices for the security and defense of the country. The religious community is with the government, the Armed Forces of Pakistan, all the security agencies of the country and the police and administration.
