Prime Minister Imran Khan has inaugurated Al-Qadir University in Jhelum.
During the inaugural ceremony, PM Imran said, “No nation can make progress without education and we wanted to set up the university on the pattern of Egypt’s Jamia Al-Azhar.”
“We will make Al-Qadir University a role model for the youth” he further added.
It is pertinent to mention here that the university is established for the promotion of Seerat-un-Nabi (peace be upon him] and the teachings of Sufi saints.
Moreover, the PM desires introduction of scholarships for hardworking and brilliant students at Al-Qadir University to help them carry out studies and contribute to development of country.
