Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi says democracy is vital for progress and prosperity of the country.

He was speaking at a launching ceremony of a commemorative postage stamp in honour of late Maulana Mufti Mahmood in Islamabad on Friday.

The stamp has been launched in recognition of his invaluable religious and political services.

The Prime Minister said there might be shortcomings in the parliamentary democracy but these are taken care of with the passage of time by the parliament itself.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi paid rich tributes to late Maulana Mufti Mahmood and said he always tried to develop consensus on national issues.     

The Prime Minister asked the Ministry of Postal Services to issue Commemorative stamps in memory of other important personalities.

Speaking on the occasion, JUI (F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman thanked the Prime Minister and the Postal Services Ministry for recognizing services and role of Maulana Mufti Mahmood in national affairs.
