The prime minister said the message of humanity and justice given by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), were the characteristics of a human society as against the inhumane world where the rules like “might is right” and “survival of the fittest” were applied. PM , on the occasion, also awarded Malik Adnan – the person who tried to save the Sri Lankan factory manager from the mob attack during the “shameful” Sialkot incident – with a certificate of appreciation and said that Malik Adnan by showing valor and humanity had made the whole county and nation proud.
