The goodbye hug
The goodbye hug

Gilgit, April 1: A farewell party was organized in honor of Mr Aziz Ali Najam, the outgoing vice chancellor of Karakuram International University, Gilgit. The party was attended by his colleagues, notables of the city and media persons.

Efforts of Mr Najam for making KIU a regional center of learning in Central and South Asian context were lauded by the speakers.

Mr Aziz Ali Najam faced a lot of resistence from sections of the region for various reasons, including promotion of arts and music at the premises of the region’s only university. Certain quarters also continously accused his administration of corruption in recruitment of teachers and other staff members.

Mr Aziz used his taste for literature, as depicted by an Urdu  couplet on front page of the university’s official website, for triggering literary scholarship at the university. He also made efforts for establishing ‘Astana-e-Iqbal-o-Rumi” at the university.

Before joining KIU Dr Najam worked at the Aga Khan University, Karachi. He has written a book titled “Heritage reviewed, traditions revived”.

  4. Dear Friends,

    It is a great loss for those who like to see a progressive educational Inst like KIU in north, who likes quality education for their generations to come. It’s very unfortunate for them, but we have no choice. There are many people who are very happy and enjoying happy moments right now. I am sure there generations will suffer badly because of this great loss.

  6. No doubt the outgoing VC will be a big loss for KIU but it is also a loss of all those who were thinking to get admision in KIU. Literally speaking a man works for himself and his home but the efforts of Najam in KIU is onderful. His efforts will always be rememberd.

  10. Dr.Aziz ali Namam was no doubt an extra ordanary man. he did a lot at KIU during his tenuer.
    Unfortunately could not recognize him in time.
    it is said ” a sound foundation for a civilization is a sound state of mind” unfortunately we lack the above.

    we wish Dr.Aziz ali najam best of luck in future.
