Addressing the ceremony, Vice-Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran said that educated nations were powerful and ruling the country and urged the Muslims to realize the value of education. He said all the spiritualism led to education and that’s why Muslim Ulemas had been declared equal to the Prophets of Bani Israel. He said sectarianism and those involved in killing each other had no link with Islam. He said America spent seven percent of its GDP on education whereas Pakistan even did not consume two percent of its GDP. The Vice-Chancellor requested the rulers to allocate at least four percent of GDP for education. Dr Mujahid Kamran said Pakistan was the only country who can change the lines of history.
He said the expulsion of capital group from the region was possible if Pakistan could play an appropriate role. Advising the students, he asked them to adopt such a career which aimed at creating new knowledge because this was a great service of Islam. The Vice-Chancellor said Pakistani students enjoyed a lot of talent but unfortunately there was nobody who could put them on right track. He asked the students to read Allama Iqbal. Discussing about the increasing number of female students in gradation, Dr Mujahid Kamran said the PU had carried out a survey and according to initial results boys could not complete their studies due to financial constraints whereas girls were ambitious to come forward.
The Vice-Chancellor also presented cheques amounting to rupees Rs 100,000/-, Rs 75,000/- and Rs 65,000/- as cash reward to the students who attained first, second and third positions respectively in the BA/BSc exam 2011 and also presented shields to the principals of their respective colleges.
