President stresses new linguistic experiments

President stresses new linguistic experiments

Islamabad

President Mamnoon Hussain on Monday called for new linguistic experiments to facilitate contacts among regional countries for the success of the multibillion dollars China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project saying Urdu language provides an excellent basis for it.

He urged Pakistani language experts and National University of Modern Languages to play due role in this respect.

The president said while addressing the fourth NUML convocation here, where gold medals were given away to the top exam position holders.

Besides NUML Rector Ziauddin Najam, teachers and students and their parents attended the ceremony in large numbers.

The president said in order to overcome the issues of communication after the operationalisation of the CPEC project when a large number of foreign traders, industrialists and people belonging to different walks of life began arriving in the country, he had donated a reasonable amount of funds to the NUML by reducing expenses of the presidency so that the youths of Gwadar could learn Chinese language by establishing a campus of the university there.

He said there was no room for extremist conduct in Islamic teachings nor did the Constitution of Pakistan allow it.

The president said the state and its institutions were playing their due role for eliminating undesirable activities and their perpetrators but it was the foremost responsibility of educated segments of the country particularly youths to utilise their abilities for rejecting and correcting the misleading narrative.

“It is imperative to defeat terrorism and extremist mindset in order to materialise the revolution of regional connectivity that we are accepting in the form of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.”

He expressed the hope that the students would live up to the nation’s expectations in this regard.

The president urged the NUML to establish linkages with the universities from China and Central Asia to Eastern Europe to benefit from their experiences.
