Its indeed a matter of great pleasure to know about the opening of Islamia college university campus in Parachinar. I heared aroud 4 thousand female students are enrolled in only Girls college Parachinar, and around 6000 students are enrolled in GPGC Parachinar. Kurram is almost equal to Islamabad in education. It was a dired need of the agency.

Hope the elders of the areas will give full support for the success of the project.
