August 14, 2018

KARACHI:Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET) celebrated 71th Pakistan Independence Day with traditional zeal and glowing tributes were paid to the people who sacrificed their lives during struggle for having an independent homeland for Muslims to live with their distinct identity and complete freedom.

Addressing the ceremony, Chancellor Jawaid Anwar said: “It is with feelings of greatest happiness and emotion that we are celebrating Pakistan’s Independence Day with patriotic zest. It marks the fulfilment of the destiny of the Muslim nation which rendered great sacrifices in the history to have its homeland.”

Anwar said that they should learn lesson from the actions and character of our national leaders and try to follow their footsteps. “Nations face ups and down but only those nations emerge as hero who are laced with patriotic feelings and work with consistency.”

“Sir Syed Ahmed Khan initiated the Aligarh Movement for Muslims of the Subcontinent to make them aware of the importance of scientific education and established Mohammadan Anglo Oriental College in 1875 which is now acknowledged as Aligarh Muslim University,” he said.

“His system of education is based on character building, tolerance and coexistence that make student a role model. Today we again need these characteristics in our system of education for nation’s reconstruction which can make student a role model. Youth are the backbone of a society and without including them in the development projects, you may get no concrete results. Sir Syed University is establishing the Sir Syed Institute for Youth Development and Research for grooming youth on national level. Youth may bring change in the society with their high morals and positive attitudes.”

Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Afzal Haq said true patriotism will make our country unbeatable in the international world. He paid rich tribute to the founding fathers for their epic struggle for democracy and independence. On this auspicious occasion Dr Afzal Haq underscored the need for translating the Quaid-e-Azam’s motto of unity, faith and discipline into reality and work together in raising Pakistan stature.
