Two-day book fair launched at MAJU
KARACHI: President, Mohammad Ali Jinnah University, (MAJU) Karachi Prof. Dr. Zubair Shaikh said although the trend of book reading on internet is at increasing side presently, but the value of published book cannot be ignored in any way. One can keep his purchased book in shelf for a long time but when he needs to know something about a particular issue he has no option except to read that book.
These views he expressed at inaugural ceremony of a two days long book fair at M.A. Jinnah University, Karachi campus on Monday. Dean, Faculty of Life Sciences, Prof. Dr. Kamran Azim, Associate Dean, Business Administration Dr. Shujaat Mubarak and head of Library, Humera Naz were also present on this occasion. He said that after book reading trend was continuously on decline due to increasing use of computer, mobile phones and television, and in this situation it was the responsibility of teachers to guide their students towards book reading habit.
He said that most of the information theyreceive through WhatsApp or other means is unreliable but when we read a book we may know real facts and analysis of the facts. Dr. Zubair Shaikh said that one cannot know real issues of a particular matter without reading books. He said they may improve knowledge, way of thinking and communication skill by developing our reading habits. He asked the students to participate in extra curriculum activities but without disturbing their educational activities.[related_post themes="text" id="322047"]
