Islamabad: Students at international Islamic University Islamabad celebrated Thank You Hug Day at the university. Students at both male and female campuses distributed Thank You cards among the staff members of Sanitation Department, Gardeners, Peons, Security guards and staffs of the Transportation Department of the university. The event was organized by the Youth Leadership Society international Islamic University Islamabad. The organizers involved the students from various departments of the University for the distribution of cards. The organizers of the campaign informed the students that the people often we call as lower staff or grade ones play very important role in the day to day affairs of the university as they perform all the routine works of sanitation, gardening and security protection. These people deserve respect and recognition in the society as the people often ignore them because of their profession which is extremely immoral act and we should not segregate them on the bases of their profession. They are very important to us because without these staff members the university will look ugly and dusty; it is not possible to see the gardens of the university green and specially we can never ignore the significant role of the security staffs who remain alert for days and nights for our protection. Students wrote words of appreciation for these staffs members on the cards and presented them with great love and respect.
Says, Tayyab Gorsi (President Youth Leadership Society and Undergraduate student at IIUI).
Deans, Head of departments and teachers from various departments also participated in the event and signed thank You Cards.
With a smiling face and shaking hands with the organizers of the event; Says Dr.Nabi Buxh Jammani (Dean faculty of Social Science, IIUI).
