KARACHI: The University of Karachi’s (KU) department of mass communications printed a new issue of its research journal last month under the supervision of the department’s chairperson and chief editor of the journal, Dr Rafia Taj.
KU vice-chancellor Dr Pirzada Qasim appreciated the department’s efforts and said that they indicated the beginning of “great academic prosperity” for the university as well as the country.
Professor Dr Saleem Kidwai of the Jawaharlal Nehru University in India said that he was “delighted to see such a comprehensive volume from Pakistan”, adding that, “In India, we often find it difficult to get any written research or discourse on contemporary trends in mass communications that have been developed in Pakistan. This journal is truly a pleasant surprise and we hope to receive more discourses [like this] from our neighbour in the future.”
