An awareness program regarding International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") was organized by the Department of Political Science at University of Turbat on 21st September 2018. The theme of the day this year is “tolerance is the peace.”
Highlighting the importance of peace for sustainable development and prosperity the UoT Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Abdul Razzaq Sabir said that “we should make forbearing our main mission for promoting and building a culture of peace in our society and throughout world.”
He said that it is the matter of great concern that unfortunately today we are still hunting for peace not on an individual level but among countries. Lust for more power, obsession for possessions and fear of terrorism is making this world a lethal place to live in. Wars come to an end but their shadows prevail in years to come. Concrete steps are needed to be carried out for making the world peaceful at individuals, country and world level. The Vice Chancellor said that his institution would play its due role to promote peace, harmony and brotherhood in the society.
Chairman Political Science Department Mr. Changez Baloch, and faculty member Muzaffar Baloch also shared their views on building a tolerant society through education. Prof Dr Gul Hassan Director QEC, Jameel Ahmed and students were also present at this occasion.
