Dr Shabir had donated Rs3 million to the student endowment fund to start the programmes – Rs1 million for Taj Muhammad Scholarship and Rs2 million for Mir Elahi Bakhsh Rind scholarships – for promotion of higher education in the region.

A couple of months ago Advocate Jadain Dashti had also donated Rs1 million to initiate Karim Dashti Scholarship programme for the same purpose.

On the occasion, Dr Hassan said, “Many philanthropists, donors and social welfare organisations are approaching the university administration with the commitment to contribute to the Student Endowment Fund for the good cause of promotion of higher learning in this far-flung part of the country.”
