ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 24th Sep, 2021 ) :The prime minister urged the internees to never compromise their credibility as the fake news had a limited life and gets discredited within short span of time. He said the state media in the past was used as propaganda tool but the youth should improve their credibility through new researches and ideas.
He also urged them to highlight Pakistan's true vision of an Islamic welfare state which should feature self-respect, humanity, rule of law and justice.
The government has already put the country on the very course as welfare programs under Ehsaas initiatives, universal health coverage, Panagahs, low-income house and efforts to establish rule of law were among the measures being taken by the government.
The prime minister said the youth had never got such opportunities like in the digital era where youngsters became billionaire even at age of 25.
Citing his success story during cricketing career, he said no individual could excel in life unless he realizes his potential, never gave up struggle and came up with new ideas.
Imran Khan also advised the youth to live a life to serve the humanity, as great leaders like Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), Sufi saints, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Nelson Mandela were remembered yet only because they lived for humanity.
The state media was reduced to act just a like a spokesperson of the ministry, instead of its core function to highlight state's narrative.
Prime Minister's Focal Person on Digital Media Dr Arsalan Khalid said out of 4,000 applicants, 100 internees had been selected which would be imparted training in digital media advertising, content making, digital diplomacy, data analysis, combating fake news and SEO exercise.
The program has been designed by the Information ministry in coordination with the United Nations Development Program.
Later, the internees would be placed at various universities where they would perform in their designated fields and receive certificate.
He said besides imparting training, the program would also enable the youths to explore bigger objectives to serve the country.
