Arfa emerges as role model for youngsters
This was expressed by renowned scientist and Pakistan Academy of Sciences (PAS), President Professor Dr Atta ur Rahman in an interview with APP.
“I personally know Arfa Karim as she visited me with her father when I was Chairman of Higher Education Commission (HEC).
Arfa wanted to take guidance about opting a suitable field when she was student of A levels”, Atta recalled.
Arfa wished to see me again but she met the unfortunate tragic death. Arfa, through her last e-mail on December 4, expressed that she wanted to opt such field at university level in which she could explore and discover things to satisfy her inquisitive nature, Atta said.
Arfa Karim was an extraordinary bright girl and was curious to explore the things but “we lost her at very early age”, he said.
In countries like Pakistan, such bright students are not given more opportunity to grow and excel, he said.—APP
