ISLAMABAD: The youth have a duty to challenge corruption since they have the power to bring about change in the social, political and economical dynamics.

This was stated by Aliya Rashid, the director general of Awareness and Prevention in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) during a seminar on the “Duty of youth is to challenge corruption”, organised by NAB in collaboration with Bahria University in Islamabad on Tuesday.

“Young people are one of the most important agents of change in the fight against corruption. Youth have the power to change the social, political and economic dynamics that underlie   a resigned acceptance of bribery and other forms of corruption, Rashid said.

“It is the duty of every young person to prevent their family from corruption.”

She urged the youth to play their role in curbing the menace of corruption from the society. The seminar was part of NAB’s campaign on awareness and prevention against corruption.

She reminded the students that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had said that corruption is a poison which we must put it down with an iron hand.
