University of Management and Technology (UMT)


I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.  – (Robert Frost)

r Hasan Sohaib Murad the founder of ILM Trust and UMT was one such person who chose the path less traveled and it made a lot of difference in the world. He started from scratch and with great missionary zeal he was able to achieve what many other cannot even dream about. A reference was held in the memory of Dr Hasan Sohaib at the University of Management and Technology the other day to celebrate his life and pray for the departed soul . The event was held in connection with the first death anniversary of Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad.
