Sindh Madressatul Islam University on Wednesday celebrated its 137th Foundation Day on its main campus located in old city area.

 Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh on Law and Administrator KMC Murtaza Wahab was the chief guest of the event. Highlighting the importance of SMI he said this institution has played a vital role in the movement of independence of Pakistan.

The beauty of SMIU structure is like gold hidden in the commercial erections. In the university’s premises, the I.I Chundrigar Road and Aiwan e Tajarat Road will be renovated very soon. After its renovation this beautiful architecture of the university appears more visible, he said and added further that the SMIU has been imparting quality education and producing leaders for the past 137 years.

While appreciating the performance of students, Wahab said that today they presented amazing programs and exposed their talent. Vice chancellor Dr Mujeebuddin Sahrai Memon said Hassanally Effendi transformed the youth with his vision of serving education. When Effendi met Sir Syed Khan he was told to think about the university instead of school.

 Today that dream has come true and SMI became a university, he said. This institute created so many leaders in almost every walk of life, he said and added further that due to financial restraint we are moving slowly and Government must look into our matter”.
