He said faculty and management of the varsity was propelling the university to become a top private institution in Pakistan. He stated that UMT provides special scholarships to students of less developed and far-flung areas, children of Shuhada, wards of airport security force, police, teachers and many others.

The knowledge of right and wrong that our Creator has revealed to us should be your guide, he added.
He also expressed that our brothers and sisters are facing the worst in Gazza. The important lesson that Gazza teaches us is “never focus on what you don’t have because it prevents us from making progress. So just thank Allah for all his blessings and become the best source of public service and nation building.
