Fearing the burgeoning diffusion of usury in Pakistan’s economic system, Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan on Thursday recommended curing the country’s financial woes by incorporating Islamic values and teachings in banking and finance.

The nuclear scientist stressed this on the 6th International Applied Business Research Conference organised by the Faculty of Management Sciences of International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI).

He also highlighted the need of the hour to bring higher education, especially the fields of engineering and management, in line with international standards.

The two-day moot attempts to unite research scholars and industrial experts from different disciplines on an international forum to exchange knowledge and research collaborations.

IIUI Rector, Dr Masoom Yasinzai, while addressing the conference said in plight that out of 56 million youth of the country alarmingly only 1.5 million had access to higher education.

We need to divert this untapped population to educational institution, he strongly asserted. Dr Yasinzai furthered that a comprehensive strategy must be devised to utilize research in shaping practical approach.
