Mushahid hails IIU for organising book fair

ISLAMABAD, Oct 24 - Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed, Secretary General of Pakistan Muslim League has said that book culture and reading are key indicators of an intellectually developed civilized society with the right values.

He was speaking as Chief Guest at the launching of the Book Fair at the International Islamic University here Tuesday. He said that book culture was key to counter the Kalashnikov culture as well as the culture of corruption, which was prevailing in Pakistan today.

He said that Islam's glory was not linked to military might but to the power of ideas, learning and knowledge. Cordoba and Baghdad had the biggest and best libraries in the contemporary period.

Mushahid Hussain regretted that today, values had changed because of obsession with money.

He said that it was unfortunate that the Muslim world would be purchasing arms worth 33 billion dollars in the next 10 years.

If only 10% of that money was spent on establishing educational institutions and libraries, which are important in character building and promoting values not based on materialism, the destiny of the Muslim Ummah would be different.

He also listed some latest books that he recently read while he was in America which show that knowledge emanates from writing and reading books.

He congratulated the students and faculty of the International Islamic University for organizing this Book Fair. PPI
