Message Chairman Governing Council (IRD)
We at the International Islamic University, Islamabad believe ourselves privileged to be associated with this unique center of learning in the Muslim world which strives to combine the essentials of the Islamic faith with the best of modern knowledge. Throughout my association with the IIUI as its Rector, I have been keenly interested in the program and activities of the IRD and have never missed the opportunity to participate in its conference and seminars. I have been particularly impressed by the Institute’s efforts to promote interfaith harmony and understanding and to reach out with its programs at a grassroots level. We at the University provide every possible support to IRD through the effective utilization of resources and other educational, research and advocacy organizations working in the areas of its interests.
