Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said that from now on, no one will be spared who resorts to violence in the name of religion.

PM Khan made these comments during an event that was being held in solidarity with Kumara’s family and the Sri Lankan nation and government.

PM Imran had taken notice of Malik Adnan — Kumara’s colleague who had tried to save his life — and lauded Adnan for his “moral courage and bravery” on Sunday. He had also announced that Adnan would be honoured with the Tamgha-i-Shujaat.


The ceremony was held to honour Adnan.

Appreciating the efforts of Adnan, PM Khan said, “Role models are important in the country because people follow them,” adding that “moral power is greater than physical power”.

“I am sure our youth will remember the way Malik Adnan stood up against those beasts.”

The prime minister said that he established the Rehmatul-lil-Alameen Authority so that the entire nation could follow in the footsteps of Holy Prophet (PBUH).

“But we are heading in a different direction,” he said as he called on the nation to read up on the life of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

“Our country is the only one that was built in the name of Islam. But this incident has brought us embarrassment,” he said, adding that he received many messages from those living abroad.

“People who are based overseas do not know what Islam is, and they distance themselves from the religion after seeing such incidents take place.”
