Seminar at Government College University

Fri, 04/01/2016 - 16:54

Lahore:01 April:Speakers at a seminar at Government College University (GCU) on Wednesday said the inspiring and fascinating story of Nobel Laureate Prof Dr Abdus Salam must be told to every child in the third world countries.

“It is a story of a Pakistani village boy who starts his life from a remote area of Jhang and becomes a towering personality in the world of Physics,” they said.

The seminar was jointly organised by university’s Jones Physics Society, Salam Chair, and the Pakistan Physical Society to pay tributes to the Pakistan’s only Nobel Laureate in the field of science for his contribution to the landmark electroweak unification.

In his keynote address, Dr G. Murtaza, Professor Salam Chair, GCU, said the story of a village boy from Jhang inspired all the young people with the idea that wherever they might come from in the world, they too could make careers in science or indeed in any other profession at present dominated by the rich countries.

He said Prof Salam’s achievements were not confined to the Nobel Prize. At the age of 33, he became Fellow of the Royal Society London.

He was the first Pakistani and the first from the Muslim world to achieve that distinction. At the age of 38, Salam became the Director of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) Trieste Italy in 1964, which he had created himself after a great struggle and against stiff resistance to provide scientists from the third world with opportunities to conduct research and study new developments in physics and mathematics. He said the Center remains to this day a monument to Salam's determination.

Dr Ghulam Murtaza, who was also taught by Dr Salam himself at the Imperial College London, also touched the humble upbringing, strong character and virtues of the great scientist.

GCU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah said it was remarkable how the Italian had owned Prof Salam and honoured him. International Centre for Theoretical Physics Italy had preserved all his documents, awards, shields, souvenirs and his personal collection of books including his Chair and Hukka etc. in a separate room called Salam Room in the library of the Centre.

He said it was a matter of pride for GCU that Prof Salam had studied and taught here.

Dr Faisal Akram from Punjab University’s Centre for High Energy Physics (CHEP) paid tributes to Prof Salam by telling the participants about his electro-weak theory and its modern implications. He said scientific work of Salam was one of the great achievements of the 20th century and was regarded an important step towards ultimate unity of all forces in nature. Prof Salam believed that “science is as important for the development of a country as the army is for its defence”.

The speakers also highlighted the interest of Dr Abdus Salam in poetry and Urdu literature referring to some of the letters that he had written to his teachers and close friends.

GCU deans Prof Dr Islam Ullah Khan and Prof Dr Riaz Ahmed also attended the seminar.The news.

Ecological importance of vulture highlighted

Fri, 04/01/2016 - 16:50

Lahore:01 April:WWF-Pakistan on Thursday organised an awareness raising event for the protection of vultures at Government Primary School, Block 4, in Changa Manga Forest Reserve, located near the ex-situ white-backed vulture conservation facility.

WWF officials said that over the years the school had been educating its students on vulture conservation and the ecological importance of the species within the region. Thursday’s activities included a lecture delivered by WWF-Pakistan’s Gyps Vulture Restoration Project team, sharing of key facts about vultures and efforts currently in place for its conservation.

The team shared that the drastic decline in the white-backed vulture population, which is now critically endangered, can be attributed to the use of Diclofenac Sodium in livestock, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which causes kidney failure in vultures.

The drug has been effectively banned since 2006 as an outcome to WWF-Pakistan’s effective lobbying with the government.

Students were also shown a documentary titled Missing Vultures, made by WWF-Pakistan on the importance of vultures and causes of the decline in their population. The presentation was followed by an interactive quiz.

A mural painted by the students of white-backed vultures in their natural habitats with a message about their ecological significance was unveiled at the school. A large number of community elders along with parents attended the event and appreciated the efforts of WWF-Pakistan in spreading awareness regarding vulture conservation.

WWF-Pakistan has been working for the protection of the Gyps vulture for more than a decade, both through in-situ and ex-situ conservation. The Gyps Vulture Restoration Facility in Changa Manga Forest Reserve is the only ex-situ conservation initiative in Pakistan dedicated to improving the current population along with a captive breeding programme.

As part of WWF-Pakistan’s in-situ conservation work a Vulture Safe Zone (VSZ) was established in Nagar Parkar, Sindh in 2012. This remote area hosts the last remaining wild population of critically endangered white-backed and long-billed vultures. The objectives behind establishing the safe zone include the complete eradication of Diclofenac Sodium and other harmful NSAIDs, and enhancing the availability and usage of an alternate drug, Meloxicam, through lobbying with pharmaceuticals, veterinarians, relevant government departments and communities.

Supplemented by the regular wild vulture population assessment, livestock and NSAID availability assessment studies critical for conservation planning, this initiative has also established a community-based organisation (CBO) to strengthen awareness and engagement for the protection of vultures.The news.

AQ Khan Pays Tribute to Quaid-e-Azam at University of Management

Sun, 03/27/2016 - 13:46

Lahore:March 27:Architect of Pakistan's nuclear programme Dr A.Q. Khan has said people have just read about Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah but he had seen him with his own eyes and found him a great and visionary leader.

“Hindus are a cunning and culprit nation; they've always hatched conspiracies against Pakistan and the Muslim Ummah. ''God forbid if Quaid-e-Azam had passed away before Pakistan came into being, it would not have appeared as a reality on the map of the world.”

According to a press release, Dr A Q Khan said this while delivering a lecture organised by Jinnah Forum at University of Management and Technology (UMT) on Saturday. A good number of students, faculty members and guests attended the event.

Dr A Q Khan further said Quaid-e-Azam was a man of strong willpower and commitment who practised what he preached and inspired a nation. Lord Mountbatten admitted that Jinnah was neither purchasable nor made to be distracted by moving forward to achieving his objectives and never compromised on his principles, he added. He said Quaid-e- Azam possessed very good qualities of nobleness, greatness, truthfulness, honesty and impartiality that distinguished him from his contemporary leaders and he stood tall among all of them; fulfilled the promise of establishing a separate homeland for his nation and made a history.

Dr A Q Khan said when in 1974, India tested nuclear weapons, a prompt response from Pakistan was necessary and if we had not responded to its aggression, it had regained control of us and today Lahore has been made the capital of Sikh community. Recalling his meeting with the then premier Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Dr A Q Khan said if Bhutto had not asked him to return from overseas, Pakistan wouldn't have been a nuclear power till the Day of Judgment.

Dr A Q Khan advised the students to take interest in their studies and be committed to their goals, say five times prayers, respect teachers and parents, become responsible citizens, recite the Holy Qur'an and ponder over its verses.

UMT Rector Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad said the foundation of Jinnah Forum at UMT was aimed at connecting the new generation with the history and ideology of Pakistan making them aware of their responsibilities as citizens and that how could they play their fundamental role in the development of the country. He, while quoting his father (late) Khurram Murad, said the establishment of Pakistan as a new state was the most important and historical event of the 20th century that would leave an impact on the entire history of the Muslim World in the days to come.

Paying tribute to the Father of the Nation, Dr Murad said Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a charismatic leader who was more than a man of logic, wisdom and a man of reasoning who made use of intellectual capabilities in the best possible way and succeeded in laying down the foundation of a separate country for us to live independently and practise our faith. He said decency, elegance and superiority were the qualities that distinguished Quaid-e- Azam from his counterparts. He emphasised the students to develop critical skills and think deeply and positively for the wellbeing of Pakistan and for the entire humanity.

He said Dr A Q Khan gave nuclear technology to Pakistan and made it unconquerable and unbeatable so it was our responsibility to preserve its identity and sovereignty.

Dr Murad also announced that UMT was working on Pakistan’s very first encyclopedia to be brought out soon by UMT Press that would be a positive academic contribution to the history of Pakistan.

The programme was also addressed by noted journalist Salman Ghani who emphasised the unity of the nation irrespective of race and nationalism. The news.
