Rawalpindi-The social, educational and cultural activities of Arid Agriculture University continued on the fourth consecutive day on Thursday.

Maulana Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi, Special Representative for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, attended a debate competition as a chief guest.

Addressing the competition, Maulana Tahir Ashrafi said no society in the world can flourish without brotherhood, equality, justice and mutual respect. 

He said that Pakistan was created after a long struggle, rendering unprecedented sacrifices of our forefathers by cherishing it. “We should do whatever it takes to bring it to safety and dignity,” he said. The Pakistani society is declining day by day so the young generation has a huge responsibility to do their part for its betterment, said Maulana Tahir Ashrafi. 

Sultan Ahmed Ali said that he is very happy to hear the speeches of the youth and has a firm belief the future of Pakistan is very bright.

He said that Pakistan came into existence on the basis of the two-nation theory and now Muslims of India are experiencing its importance and Quaid’s vision so we have to respect that vision.

Describing the session as the best and unique to build the moral values of the students, the Vice-Chancellor said that every person in Pakistan is running towards worldly education due to which we are moving away from Islam and its teachings which covers and guides every aspect of our life.

He also asked the university administration to organise more seminars in this manner which would provide opportunities to the students to learn about Islam.

To aware the masses of the food insecurity issue, the ongoing situation in the country and the method to overcome this severe situation, a seminar was held at the university where the Vice-Chancellor of the university Prof. Dr Qamar-uz-Zaman participated as a chief guest along with other keynote speakers, faculty and students.

In his address, Prof. Dr Qamar-uz-Zaman said that the problem of food security has taken over the world and the situation in Pakistan is getting worse day by day.

If we do not take immediate steps to address this issue, in the future, hostile elements could take advantage of it and damage the country’s integrity, he said.
