Islamabad
Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) and National Book Foundation (NBF) will work together for promoting book publication and reading culture so as to provide academic input to the students in their educational pursuits.
The AIOU and NBF could work as sister organisations for publication of academic books and allied material, said NBF Managing Director Dr. Inamul Haq Javeid while speaking here on Thursday at the AIOU Academic Complex. The event was the first one in connection with new series ‘Mulaqat’ started by the university to interact with eminent personalities.
Dr. Inamul Haq said the AIOU’s academicians could act as their leading partners for publication of books of students’ interest and promoting research and innovative study. He said the university’s academicians will be welcomed to seek the NBF’s membership and avail its research facility. He assured that the students of AIOU will also be facilitated in doing research work at M.Phil and Ph.D levels.
AIOU Vice Chancellor Dr. Shahid Siddiqui appreciated the role of NBF and personal contribution of Dr. Inamul Haq Javeid in promoting book reading culture and literary activities. He underlined the need of strengthening people's links with the books in order to promote knowledge-based society and meeting the new challenges in the educational field. He said the books served as best source for creative and innovative learning.
Dr. Inamul Haq, who had earlier served as chairman of the Department of Pakistani Languages at the AIOU, said he was looking bright prospects of increasing trend of book publication, as number of editions of knowledge-based and literary books of eminent authors increased since he joined the institution. Being the author of about 50 books, he received very encouraging response, he added.
He noted that the AIOU’s contribution in promoting Pakistani languages particularly at the higher educational level had been outstanding. It was his pride

that his personal efforts of introducing M-Phil level languages’ program in the University were highly successful.
The event, arranged by the Department of Pakistani Languages, was also addressed its chairman Dr. Mohsina Naqvi, Professor Abdullah Jan Abid and Dr. Abdul Wajid Tabasam.
