The University of Agriculture Faisalabad administration on Thursday distributed 800 headscarves among females as a gesture of respect from their alma mater and to promote eastern values in the society.
Addressing on the occasion, Dr Zafar Iqbal said we have to reconnect the youth with old generation and our rich culture to achieve our lost glory. He said that the idea was meant to encourage respect for women as the country was entrusted to uphold Muslim traditions. He said we have to work on character building of the youth that will flourish on the golden principals of Islam. He said dupatta was a beautiful manifestation of our culture. He said that university didn’t compel anyone and it is their choices. He said that we are empowering our women by ensuring a congenial environment for the females. He added that mixed reaction came after announcing Sisters’ Day. But, now the criticism is narrowing down in the society after counselling.
