Rich tributes paid to BB at SZABIST
Islamabad: After spending eight years in exile, away from her country, when Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan she was advised to limit her activities as she was facing life threats, but the great leader refused to do so saying people have reached from the mountains of Kashmir to welcome me, now how can I stay away from them, said Deputy Speaker of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Assembly Shaheen Kasaur Dar.

She stated this while highlighting the vision of Benazir Bhutto Shaheed at an event to mark her 4th death anniversary at Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science & Technology (SZABIST), Islamabad.

While discussing various aspects of Benazir Bhutto's life the speaker said that the assassinated former prime minister continued her struggle bravely to restore democracy till her last breath. Shaheen who was personally present in Liaquat Bagh, Rawalpindi at the time of BB's assassination said the great leader was fully determined to fulfil the vision and dream of his father late Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. She was of the view that Z A Bhutto was very well aware about the exceptional abilities of his daughter. He said that Bhutto knew that her daughter is very strong and courageous and that is why in spite of facing so many hardships in life including, hanging of her father, mysterious death of her brother abroad, brutal murder of another brother in Karachi, helpless mother, jailed husband, and eight years away from the country could not weaken her mission.

Sharing her personal experience the deputy speaker recalled the December 27, 2007 evening when she and many other workers of PPP were standing in one row in front of Benazir Bhutto, and late prime minister asked them to unite in helping the poor and mitigating the sufferings of all those who are deprived, oppressed and helpless.

SZABIST Director Syed Asad Hussain while addressing on the occasion paid rich tributes to Benazir Bhutto. He said that the brave leader wanted to usher in an era of educational revolution in Pakistan. To achieve this objective, he added, BB established SZABIST University, which is now fulfilling her dream and carrying forward her mission of an educated nation.

Seminar on Ghalib held at IIU
Islamabad: The speakers at a seminar said Mirza Ghalib removed mistakes in Urdu Prose and made it a language that is comprehensible to all.

They said this during a seminar on renowned Urdu poet Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib, organised here by the International Islamic University (IIU) Islamabad.

IIUI Rector Professor Fateh Muhammad Malik said that people think that Ghalib was a poet of inaction but in reality his inaction leads towards action. "Ghalib was a poet of all ages. Allama Iqbal took Ghalib's vision forward and a separate country for Muslims of sub-continent came into being," he said.

Dr. Khalid Masood said modernity is linked to the humanity and it should be taken as a unit with no differentiation between religions. Dr. Abdul Aziz Sahir said that Ghalib's writing is influenced by experiences of real life as he made his poetry appealing to all and sundry and not confined it to Wahdatul Wajood. Professor Qaiserah M. Alvi, Director Women Campus and Dr. Sadia Tahir also spoke on the occasion. The news
