Islamic banking ensures equal distribution of wealth: SBP official
FAISALABAD: The objective of promotion of Islamic banking is to ensure equal distribution of wealth in the society and to end poverty and hunger, a government official said.
Addressing the opening ceremony of four-year BS Honours programme in Islamic banking and finance under the Department of Islamic Studies at the Government College Women University Faisalabad, he said all Shariah requirements have been kept in view while designing Islamic banking but the people are hesitant about it.
