Islamabad
Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) and the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) will strengthen their ongoing collaborative partnership to promote Arabic language and Islamic culture.
This was stated by a senior officer of OIC Secretariat, Abdula Manafi Matualo, during his visit to the AIOU’s main campus here on Thursday. On his arrival, he was given a detailed briefing on the OIC-funded project -- Regional Institute for Complimentary Education (RICE) -- being implemented by the Arabic Department of the AIOU.
The project was started in collaboration with the AIOU and OIC in 1984 in light of the decision taken by the OIC’s Foreign Ministers’ Conference in 1981.
Abdula Manafi assured that the visiting delegation which included their professional officer Galib Huseynov will present a report to the OIC’s Secretary General suggesting ways and means to further strengthen this project to achieve the stipulated goals.
Speaking on the occasion, AIOU Vice Chancellor Dr. Shahid Siddiqui underlined the need of pooling the available resources in the Muslim countries for acquiring knowledge and expertise in order to meet the socio-economic challenges of the contemporary world.
Knowledge is only way to revive their past glory and receive a respectable place in the comity of the nations. In the present era, he added most important source for progress and development is knowledge, and it has proven in the history that the nations which possessed knowledge became powerful and got their culture dominated.
