Armed forces of Pakistan are the pride of Muslim Ummah, as they are ever-ready and vigilant for the protection of the nation and society from the scourge of extremism and terrorism. This was stated by Islamabad International Islamic University (IIUI) President Dr Hathal bin Homoud Al-Otaibi at the concluding ceremony of the 36th Human Resource Development Programme for officers of armed forces of Pakistan, which was held at the Allam Iqbal Auditorium Faisal Masjid Campus. The one-month-long Islamic training programme was organised by the Dawah Academy of the university.
As many as nineteen participants from Pakistan Army, Air Force and Pakistan Navy participated in the programme. The IIUI president said that in the present era, distance education and online teaching has become vital for all educational institutions while the Dawah Academy, IIUI, will also soon introduce such programmes for people from all sectors in this regard. He reiterated his resolve that the IIUI will be among the leading ranks to make Pakistan proud across the nations through its skilled youth, research and academic excellence.
