Hoisting the Flag of Sovereignty - Ceremony held at IBA Main Campus
14th August, the Independence Day of our resilient country is a day that is widely celebrated nationwide. As a nation, we marked and celebrated the 70th Independence Day this year, while appreciating efforts of our national heroes. This Independence Day, IBA exhibited its patriotism through demonstrations of activities in the best possible manner. A large number of IBA faculty, students, staff, international students and alumni gathered for the happy occasion at IBA, Main Campus, dressed in traditional clothes and holding Pakistani flags.
Dr. Muhammad Nishat Acting Dean & Director, Dr. Nasir Touheed Professor & Coordinator Testing Service, Dr. Shahid Qureshi Program Director CED, Mr. Jami Moiz Asst. Professor Marketing, along with other senior IBA faculty graced the occasion with their presence. The event was seamlessly organized by Mr. Aamer Shabbir Khan General Manager Administration and the Administration Team.
Faculty, staff members, students and overseas participants of the IESS (International Entrepreneurship Summer School) Program assembled on the patio for the ceremony, while Dr Mohammed Nishat made a wonderful speech highlighting the importance of 14thAugust before International Participants and IBA personnel. All the attendees stood together in solidarity, listening to patriotic songs as the flag hoisting ceremony was carried out in front of the Fauji Foundation Building. The National Anthem was sung with utmost zeal, devotion and patriotism, following which, a tree plantation was conducted on the premises.
Both IBA campuses remained closed to observe the national celebration, and the event concluded with refreshments being served at the Alumni Student Centre. We end with a quote from the Quaid-e-Azam, hoping to gain inspiration from his golden words:
"With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve."
