ISLAMABAD – President Mamoon Hussain termed sports as a measure to stop extremism from the society, PakistanTribe reported.
Address to the opening ceremony of a polo tournament, he was of the view that to prevent the youth from hopelessness, disappointment and negativity, we have to develop healthy and constructive activities.
He said that he expects Islamabad club will not bind its sports activities only to polo, but also will play its important role in the development of other sports also.
President said that in this era we are facing terrorism, and through social harmony we can defeat it.
“We are facing this problem because of some absence of social harmony, and this is giving a benefit to our enemies and they are creating more problems for us.”
The President said that we are also facing corruption as a major problem.
“Corruption is only effective when the social structure is badly affected due to the social imbalancing, we can also deal with this problem by the development in sports.”
He said that whether it is sports or any other field, it cannot be developed unless the private sector plays its part.
Mamnoon emphasizes Islamabad club and other like organizations can play their part in the development of sports. Sports play a very important role in the development of mental, physical and spiritual health of a person.
