PM Imran is a devout Muslim without a beard, Fawad says


Prime Minister Imran Khan is a devout Muslim but does not wear religion on his sleeve, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on Friday.

Talking to reporters outside Parliament House after the National Assembly’s budget session, Fawad said, “He [PM Imran] is an honest man and a devout Muslim … he just doesn’t prefer wearing beard.”

The minister said that politics and religion must be kept apart, however, opposition politicians often use religion to advance their agenda against the government.

“Everyone is aware of the life he [Imran Khan] has spent and the values he keeps… they know he is an honest and pious man and any politicking on the matter would not succeed,” Fawad Chaudhry said.
