SMIU forms Core Group of its alumni

KARACHI:Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) formed a 15-member Core Group of SMIU’s Alumni belonging to school, college and university in a meeting held on Tuesday at its Senate Hall. The meeting was chaired by SMIU Vice Chancellor Dr Mohammad Ali Shaikh.

The meeting decided that Core Group’s main task would be to expand its ranks and organize SMIU alumnus for formation of SMIU Alumni Council. Addressing the meeting, Dr Shaikh said that it was a matter of happiness for him that a large number of old students of this historic institution, who had studied here from 1957 to 2017, had attended the meeting and shown their love and reverence for their alma-mater.

He said that SMIU, being an alma mater of founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and other leading personalities of their own professional areas, wanted to reunite its alumni and refresh its association with SMIU. In this respect, the Core Group would launch a membership campaign for bringing old students of its school, college and university on one platform.After that SMIU’s Alumni Council will be formed in the next few months.

Dr Shaikh said that Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah had not only received his early education from SMI, but he had elevated it to the level of college and had also bequeathed one third of his property for it. Likewise, SMIU is trying to bring its old students under one umbrella of SMIU’s Alumni Council. He said: “SMIU is recognized as one of the great institutions of the country, now we are trying to get international recognition for it as a best institution of the world.”

He also said that SMIU would provide all required assistance to the core group in its organizational work.

SMIU alumni shared their interesting memoirs associated with this great institution and appreciated efforts of Dr Shaikh for providing them opportunity to reestablish their association with their alma-mater through this meeting.
