Prime Minister Imran Khan in his address earlier at the United Nations and recently in Kartarpura, presented the true picture of Islam to the world addressing all their misunderstanding and misconceptions.
Deputy Speaker, National Assembly said this on Monday after inaugurating three-day workshop titled “Advanced Training for Media students on CVE Media Product Development.”
The workshop has been organized by Pakistan Peace Collective (PPC)
This training programme is a research & communication project of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting aiming to provide refined professional media product development skills to some 22 media students from various universities of the country, with a deeper understanding of the role of media in countering violent extremism.
Qasim Khan Suri applauded Ministry of Information & Broadcasting for providing premier training on the issue of media’s role in countering violent extremism to the media students.
These students he said would be the future journalists and communicators to spread the message of peace and harmony. In his opening address, he mentioned that it is unfortunate that our religion Islam has been wrongly associated with violent extremism.
Suri said the narrative given by the West reflects they have failed to understand the teachings of our faith.
This misunderstanding he said was appropriately and aptly addressed by our Prime Minister in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly recently.
Our youth as journalists and filmmakers in Pakistan need to understand and build their skills in disseminating our national narratives through media, he emphasized.
We as Pakistanis have the ability to promote Peace worldwide and it will help to alleviate poverty from the society, he said.
Our Youth he said have the responsibility to promote the positive image of Pakistan. Media, he added has an eye over the issues of the common man and can help build their resilience against violent extremism and guide them in right direction, said the Deputy Speaker.
