World Charity Day
Character building, positive mindset and collective efforts are the three important components of a peaceful prosperous society, while for peace in the world it is binding on us that we should help the poor and the wretched sections of society.
These views were expressed by speakers at a seminar in connection with World Charity Day here on Tuesday here in garrison city. The ceremony was addressed by Chairman of the Believers Life Skill Trust Abdul Aziz Butt, Director Public Relations Rawalpindi Hamid Javed Awan, General Secretary of the Believers Trust Muhammad Arshad, Salim Murtaza, Mehr Ali, Muhammad Azeemushan, Amna Irshad, Asma Aurangzeb, Umar Wahid Sheikh and a number of others.
Abdul Aziz Butt was of the view that Believers Trust was striving for promotion of such skills as could make the young members of society useful citizens. “We are encouraging the young generation not only to be an organic part of society but they should adapt themselves to virtues of good human beings.” Director Public Relations Hamid Javed Awan emphasized on education that could enable youth to build not only their own future but that of their country as well. He urged them to make maximum use of their talent and turn themselves into a productive, positive and contributing citizenry. Muhammad Arshad said an ideological revolution is required for global peace. We can be economically and financially self-reliant only when we as a nation stand on our feet and are ready to lay down sacrifices of every kind. Nations succeed only when they are resolved to make their mark in the world by creating virtues of self-reliance and hard work.
Azeemushan drew the attention of the participants of the seminar towards atrocities being committed by the Buddhist monks in Myanmar. Today, the entire world is crying shame against the Myanmar government and its leader the Nobel Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi who have turned a deaf ear to the cries of help of the Myanmar’s Muslim minority. He called for social boycott and diplomatic pressure on the Burmese (Myanmar) government so that ordeal of the Rohingya Muslims could come to an end. This is time that Myanmar government should announce citizenship for the Rohingya Muslims who have been living in Myanmar since twelfth century.
Speaker urge collective efforts to ensure quality education, better health facilities, employment opportunities and financial assistance for the needy to purge society of a sense of deprivation.
