ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday announced the established of a Rehmatul-lil-Alameen Authority in the country to ensure the implementation of the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in society.

In his special message for the country’s youth, Khan said that countries, where the rule of law reigns supreme, are bound to progress.
He said an international advisory committee of international scholars would also be set up to present the real face of Islam to the world.
Imran Khan said he will be the patron of the head of the authority Rehmatul-lil-Aalameen and its chairman will be a leading scholar of Islam. He said the authority will monitor curricula taught in schools and organize research at universities on the true message of Islam in the light of the teachings of the Holy Prophet [Sallallah-o-Alaihe wa Alehi wa Sallam Khatam-un-Nabiyyeen]. He stressed the need to conduct research into Muslim heroes.
