In her address to the students the principal Prof. Rana Arshad Qazi congratulated the prize winners on their academic and co curricular achievements. “Our country is passing through an important phase of taboo transformation, whether it be beyond the border provocations, or the implementation of anti-corruption laws; what is most important at the moment is an awareness, an introspective eye to discriminate right from wrong, a determined will to raise voice against injustice and a desire to silence the unwanted slogans of disruption and war”, she said. She asked the students to be aware of their academic, civic and social responsibilities and to develop their self-identity through sincerity and commitment.
