The campus of the Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) would be established at the Hawks Bay here.
This was informed at the fourth meeting of the Senate of Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SIMU), which held at its premises here on Friday.
Sindh Minister for Education, Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar, who is also Pro-Chancellor of SMIU, chaired the meeting.
Dr Muhammad Ali Shaikh, Vice Chancellor of SMIU, while presenting the five year report of the university said that the present provincial government of Sindh has given ten acres of land to SMIU in Hawks Bay area, where ‘Hawks Bay Campus of SMIU’ will be established soon.
In his report Dr Muhammad Ali Shaikh said that earlier the Government of Sindh had given one hundred acres of land for SMIU’s Malir Campus in the Education City of Karachi, however this area will take some time to get developed.
Therefore, it was an urgent need of the SMIU to get a plot in its vicinity to establish its new campus to fulfill its growing needs. He said that the enrollment of the students is increased every year at SMIU that is why, the present day Main Campus of the university in insufficient to accommodate all students.
‘Sindh Madressatul Islam University has emerged as one of the best and quality universities of the country.
Keeping such fact in the mind it needs to be expended to some extent to give opportunity of learning to those students who are willing to get enrollment in the alma mater of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’, Dr Shaikh said and added that in this respect we requested to the Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah for allocation of a piece of land in the vicinity of SMIU and he happily ordered to give the SMIU ten acres of land for its new campus in the said area.
