Addressing the ceremony, Dr Mujahid Kamran said that the world was a battlefield and the great nations were under the control of world's financial elite which wanted to establish one world government enslaving mankind while around 1.5 billion Muslims of the world had almost no share in creation of new knowledge.
These were the two biggest problems the world was facing, he added.
He advised students to adopt reading habits and read books on different topics. Earlier, Dr Kanwal Amin led a walk in connection with World Book and Copyright Day from the department to IER to Al Raazi Hall.
