SWABI - The old Islamians Senior Alumni Association, Islamabad Chapter demanded that Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) government should take steps and play its role to highlight the services of Islamia College Peshawar founder Sir Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum Khan about his remarkable contributions in the field of education.
Sir Sahibzada had delivered in a very difficult time when the British and Hindus were dominating all affairs and the stage was setting for the First World War between allied powers and Germany.
They were speaking here on Tuesday when they visited mausoleum of Sir Sahibzada. October 1 was termed by them a great historic day when classes commenced in the famous ICP exactly 100 years back in 1913. The SAA were led by former Ambassador to Afghanistan Amir Usman and many distinguished old Islamians who were mostly retired were part of delegation. They held Quran Khawani at the mosque where Sir Sahibzada is buried and offered fateha for the departed soul of the Islamia College's founder. It was a rare occasion when the old Islamians gathered at the tomb of Sir Sahibzada.
