CII conference to take all clerics on board for CGP: Zartaj Gul

ISLAMABAD, Mar 26 (APP):State Minister for Climate Change Zartaj Gul Tuesday said a conference of the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) is going to be organized to take religious scholars and ulemas (clerics) from all schools of thought on board for supporting and disseminating awareness on Clean Green Pakistan and 10 Billion Tree Tsunami.

Talking to APP, Zartaj Gul said, “I have personally written a letter to President Dr Arif Alvi for taking this initiative to take the most significant component of our society in the loop. So that masses should be kept abreast and fully aware to partake in the ambitious and virtuous programme aimed at keeping the environment clean and green.”

She said that public and private sector bodies along with civil society were joining hands with the Ministry of Climate Change for Clean, Green Pakistan, 10 Billion Tree Tsunami, Apmi Shaarah projects and other programmes to conserve environment.

However, it was high time to bring the religious faction in the mainstream for successful implementation of environment preserving projects which were previously neglected, she added.

Zartaj Gul said, “Islam teaches us that cleanliness is half of faith which is the basis of Clean, Green Pakistan. Ulemas can better help infuse this message for actively participating in Clean Green Pakistan in the general public.”
