Former Director General of Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Prof. Niaz Erfan made the remark in the monthly meeting of the Hamdard Thinkers Forum, a famous intellectual forum in Islamabad.
Our society can become a role model for others if we implement teachings and Sunnah of our Prophet (PBUH) in our daily life, he said.
He added: Everyone should try to change himself first to bring change in the society. Teachers and media can play key role to bring change in social values. Religious scholars should present themselves as role model in front of their followers to bring back ethics to the society. Political parties and leaders can be helpful in the task through bringing change in their disciplined behavior. A movement is required for character building of society.
Other speakers at the event also highlighted the need for adopting the teachings of Islam and implementing them practically to solve social issues.
