Baleegh-ur-Rehman (Minister of State for Federal Education):
This is very important situation when Prime Minister has spoken about this issue. Islam is religion of peace and tranquility. However, it has been used by terrorist organizations for their ulterior objectives. Those organizations are working against Islamic teachings and targeting worship places of Muslims. We should bring true spirit of Islam in front of the world community. Islam, as a religion, works for the betterment of entire humanity. The terrorists attack our mosques, other worship places, public places on the basis of their vague justifications. We should come up with a counter-narrative and challenge their philosophy.

Progressive nations throughout the world make assessments before future planning. Census is very much important for assessment of urban and rural population in the country , and for assessment about population ratio of youth, children and old age people. Unfortunately, it could not take place in previous two decades. This is vision of incumbent government to complete census as soon as it is possible. Prime Minister of Pakistan works eagerly for human development. The census will help in many ways once it is completed. Through census, we will be able to make a concrete evaluation of our man power and it will be used accordingly.
