Addressing the flag hoisting ceremony at the Gulshan-e-Iqbal Campus of the Federal Urdu University on the occasion of the 75th Independence Day of Pakistan, Dr. Muhammad Zahid, Head of Faculty of Science, said that we had to go through the struggles for survival in the early years of Pakistan’s existence.

 It is difficult to imagine how difficult it was to survive at the time of the creation of this country. But we have been given the foundation on which we can reach the heights of progress if we work hard and honestly.

On the occasion, Acting Registrar Dr Muhammad Sarem said that the independence of Pakistan is a blessing.  We should cherish this blessing and work together for the development and integrity of the country and the nation.

This day should be celebrated with the determination that we will all remain united and put the country on the path of development so that it can be counted among the developed countries of the world.

He added that the Pakistani nation with its Kashmiri brothers expressing solidarity as Kashmir was included in the map of Pakistan. It will soon be a part of Pakistan. Prof. Seema Naz Siddiqui conducted the function while Dr. Qari Muhammad Iqbal recited the Holy Quran. On this occasion, special prayers were offered for peace and survival.
