ISLAMABAD, Oct 21 (APP): President Dr Arif Alvi promulgated an ordinance to form National Rahmatul-Lil-Alameen Authority with an objective to promote research on Seeratun Nabi (Peace Be Upon Him) and guide youth on multiple aspects of Holy Prophet’s (PBUH) life.

Called “The National Rahmatul-Lil-Alameen Authority Ordinance”, the document provides for the formation of the said body with the prime minister as its patron and would comprise a chairperson and six other members, according to the ordinance circulated by the law ministry Thursday.

Moreover, a high-level advisory board would also be constituted to provide advice and strategic guidance to the patron to meet the Authority’s objectives.

According to the document, the functions of the Authority included to actualize the concept of Riasat-e-Madina based upon justice, rule of law and welfare state and inculcate them in the life of individuals as well as society.

It will review and project the literature on Seeratun Nabi (PBUH) and coordinate with education department to organize events on the subject, and provide international counter-narrative to various misconceptions against Islam prevalent globally.
