ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb on Friday said universities needed to design programmes for promotion of the vision of founding father Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
“The founding father waged a democratic struggle for creation of Pakistan and being a Pakistani we should always remember that movement,” she said while addressing a function in Islamabad on Friday in connection with week-long celebrations being marked on the eve of birth anniversary of the Quaid-e-Azam.
Marriyum Aurangzeb said the Quaid-e-Azam gave the message of unity, faith and discipline to confront all the challenges.
She said the speeches and messages of the Quaid-e-Azam have relevance for every community; be they the youth, entrepreneurs or the minorities. She said actually Pakistan was created for the protection of the rights of minorities in the sub-continent.
The minister for information highlighted that 55 universities have endorsed the subject of parliamentary studies while nine universities have practically started teaching it. She expressed confidence that this program will help create a linkage between the youth and the parliament.
