Talk by Dr. Tariq Rahman at School of Education

School of Education, Beaconhouse National University organized a talk by Dr. Tariq Rahman on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 under its Distinguished Lecture Series. The topic of his talk was "What was Jinnah's Pakistan? And what did we do to it?."

In his talk, Dr. Tariq Rahman highlighted the Jinnah’s vision for Pakistan through the excerpts of his speeches and letters. He discussed how our policy makers, political leaders and we as a nation have distorted that image over the years. He pointed at some of the policies that have harmed our country much more than the alleged inefficiency of our rulers. He also talked about some historical events that have resulted in the distortion of Jinnah’s vision of Pakistan. The talk was attended by students, faculty and staff of BNU. Vice Chancellor Mr. Shahid Hafiz Kardar was the chief guest on the occasion.
