Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, urged the Dawat-e-Islami, to establish its university in the metropolis on the pattern of the one already functional in Islamabad.

The request was made to the religious organisation during the PPP chairman’s visit to the Dawat-e-Islami’s centre, Faizan-e-Madina, on the occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi. He was accompanied by Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and other senior PPP leaders.

Bilawal directed the Sindh CM to meet the concerned religious leaders to help them in laying the foundation stone of the desired university in Karachi.

The senior officials of the Dawat-e-Islami observed that it was PPP’s patron-in-chief, former president Asif Ali Zardari, who had extended help to get a bill, under which tge religious organisation could establish a university in Islamabad, passed from the National Assembly and Senate.

According to Dawat-e-Islami’s officials the university in Islamabad was not only imparting religious education but was also offering modern and scientific subjects for bettering the students’ higher learning prospects.

The religious leaders said services rendered by their organization had also been appreciated by former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto who had allotted them a vast piece of land off Super Highway.

The land was called Sehra-e-Madina since it was being used for holding large religious and spiritual congregations outside the city.

Later, talking to media personnel outside Faizan-e-Madina, the PPP chairman said he would not use the day for commenting on political issues, and was only there to emphasise on teachings of his religion, and spreading message of peace and tolerance.
