President Mamnoon Hussain has urged the civil servants to serve the public with a missionary spirit, in line with the exemplary sense of duty, compassion, and extraordinary spirit of their predecessors, as taught in Islam.
Addressing the participants of the 10th National Management Course (NMC) at the National School of Public Policy (NSPP) here on Wednesday, he hailed the pioneer civil servants who worked day and night despite the lack of resources and means of the progress and development of the country, soon after the creation of Pakistan.
He said the civil servants must adopt the golden principles of kindness, sympathetic address of people’s complaints, and public service to win the confidence of the masses.
Mamnoon Hussain said bureaucracy, in an Islamic welfare state, must emulate the spirit of public service as per the golden principles of Islam.
The President said only those nations achieved progress in the world whose individuals and the responsible remained active in every challenge of life. He said missionary spirit and passion are required in every step of a nation’s life, while, the absence of these traits causes the downfall of nations.
He urged the civil servants to keep the spirit of public service alive in their hearts so that the grievances of the masses could be resolved and national development could be achieved.
The President said that only those nations could play their positive role among the comity of nations which had combated challenges successfully.
He said Pakistan had been grappling with different challenges during the past seventy years and now was the time to reap the fruits of the sacrifices rendered by the state institutions and the people.
Mamnoon said the phases of the construction and completion of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) demand the same spirit and passion which were seen during the struggle for the solidarity of the country soon after the creation of Pakistan. He called upon the people and the civil servant officers never to let this spirit die down in their hearts.
