Pakistan Tahreek e Insaf's agenda articulates and spells out the vision of a modern Islamic republic that advocates individual's welfare through community's cooperation. PTI wants to set Pakistan on a course to political stability, social harmony, and economic prosperity for all religious, ethnic and racial communities.PTI has an agenda to blend traditional social and religious values and cultural and ethnic diversity of Pakistan into common goals and aspirations for a just society based on Mohammad Iqbal's and Mohammad Ali Jinnah's vision of Islamic democratic culture providing Social security, Welfare and theRule of law.Mohammad Iqbal's work has influenced Imran Khan in his deliberations on an "Islamic social state". Khan's call for religion and national pride to play a greater role appeal primarily to a gradually growing young and educated urban middle class. As the political elite have shown neither the desire or ability to act against the energy crisis, inflation, and social tensions, the population is looking for alternatives.Providing a credible new leadership for restoration of Pakistan's political and economic sovereignty through building a new bond of trust between the government and the people is another stated goal of party. Establishment of a strong accountability and anti-corruption system is also very important part of PTI's agenda.
As a revolutionary party that has recently arrived on the national stage, the PTI has called for major social, economic, and political reforms. The PTI's ideology is derived mainly from Allama Iqbal's vision of a self-reliant, modern democracy derived from the guiding principles inherent in Islam. While Pakistan receives a large amount of money from international lenders and aid donors, the PTI has promised to stop all foreign aid if it comes to power. The PTI maintains that corruption in all of its forms – whether moral, financial, spiritual – has ruined Pakistan, and therefore a culture of accountability and transparency is needed to restore faith in the system of government. The PTI has robustly argued for religious tolerance and greater representation for minorities. A number of Christians, Sikhs, and Hindus have joined the PTI. Besides minorities, the PTI has also spoken out for the plight of senior citizens, poor people, and women.
The PTI believes in raising education standards across the country, launching a campaign to achieve universal literacy, and promoting schools and colleges in the nation. At present, Pakistan follows several very different and competing models, which have had mixed results. The PTI believes that a focus should be placed upon the education of women.
The PTI has called for a complete overhaul of Pakistan's current political order The PTI believes in a complete abolition of feudalism, economic inequality, and an end to government mismanagement. The PTI has promised to crack down on police brutality, restructure the civil service, reform the electoral system, allow for a truly independent judiciary, decentralize state power, and enforce all laws which extend personal liberty.
