A press conference addressed by IIUI Rector and President
Yesterday, on the 20th of October, 2009, the International Islamic University Islamabad, H-10 Campus was struck by two separate terror attacks.

The fist attack took place at around 3:15 p.m. when a suicide bomber blew himself up at the door of the International Café in the Women’s Campus of the University. The attacker was dressed in a ‘burqa’ and was wearing ladies shoes. Our security guard Mr. Shoukat present at duty on the main entrance stopped him from entering the building, at which he shot Mr. Shoukat in the rear abdomen and ran towards the dining hall of the café. He was again stopped by Mr. Pervaiz Masih, a worker in the café, at which he blew himself up.

As a result of this attack, two students, Miss Sidra Khalid and Miss Amna Tahir died on the spot, along with Pervaiz Masih. Another 35 students were injured in the blast, along with one male and one female worker at the café. Out of the injured, Miss Hina d/o Sikandar, who was critically injured, passed away at the PAEC hospital last night. Were in not for the bravery of the two university staff mentioned above, the damage would have been significantly greater as more than 300 girls were there for lunch at the time in the dining hall

The second attack took place approximately 2 minutes later in front of the office of the Chairman, Department of Shariah, Professor Dr. Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq. This was in the gallery of the first floor in Faculty of Shariah & Law located in Imam Abu Hanifa Block. Fortunately, Dr. Zia-ul-Haq had left his office 15 minutes prior to the attack.

As a result of this attack, two students of the Arabic department, Mr. Khalil-ur-Rehman and Mr. Hafiz Nafees died on the sport. Three other persons, Mr. Waqar, Mr. Zia-ud-Din and Mr. Muneer Hussain Anjum were injured. Mr. Muneer has been discharged from the hospital after receiving treatment, while the other two are still under treatment in the hospital.

The International Islamic University had received no prior threat, or warning regarding this attack, either verbally or in writing from any organization. There was no prior instruction from any governmental organization regarding a security threat to the University. The University administration, on their own initiative and in light of the prevailing situation in the country, had started screening of all vehicles and persons entering the University, however, the area of the University ranging 704 acres lacks a boundary wall, or the type of security normally seen at security installations. The University had already submitted a project to the HEC/Federal Government to provide necessary funds for the completion of the boundary wall. This is a large project that would cost hundred of millions of rupees.

The Rector, President, and the staff of the University wish to express their deep sorrow and anguish over these attacks, and express their condolences to the families of those who were martyred in this most shameful attack on this seat of Islamic learning. The staff and students of the University are resolute in their courage in the face of this cowardly attack and we wish to express our gratitude to all those, including our students, staff, emergency, and medical services, who have served above their call of duty in this hour of need. The University has been temporarily closed for the next few days, until the 24th October, 2009 as a mark of respect for those martyred in these attacks, but Insha-Allah we will soon resume classes. The acts of terror will not be allowed to defeat the mission of this University. We ask the nation for their help and prayers in this time of need.

Chinese Scholar Speaks at IIUI
“Pakistan and China are good neighbors, close friends, trusted partners, and dear brothers. The friendship and contacts between our two people have a long history. In the old days we were linked by the Silk Route at present we are united by “all-weather” friendship and “all-round” cooperation. We will never forget that Pakistan is one of the first countries to recognize new china. When China was in difficulty during 1950s and 60s, it was Pakistan that opened an air corridor linking china to the outside world. Over the years, on the issues affecting China’s core interests, it is Pakistan that has extended valuable support to China in International arena.”

These view were expressed by Dr. Qian Xauemei, a professor of the school of International Studies at the Peking university, China while speaking at the International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI). She added that we have already set up a solid relationship and working hard to deepen our strategic partnership as well and it is time for us to reflect, how much because we know each other?

“Which is a serious question to be answered because correct perceptions about each other and mutual understanding are the preconditions for any long-live friendship and trust.” She further said that in Chinese words, which mean real friends know each other by heart, and only real understanding can maintain friendship; Or else friends will end up as strangers. Second yet more important, with the end of the Cold War, particularly in the context of anti-terrorism since September 2001, the International political environment has changed tremendously, and there are more and more variables rising as interferon between us, among which western discourse is but one example.

She continued saying "I am not scaremongering here, this is really happening at least in part of Chinese academia. My personal observation and experiences alarmed me about this. Initially, the fields of my interests are nationalism and Islamic politics which includes not only the so-called higher politics such as the regime, the institution, the official ideology, and the system, but also kinds of grass-roots movements and organizations. Pakistan is No.1 case in all these aspects. As a result, I began to focus on Pakistan Politics and society several years ago. For kind of reasons, the analytical frameworks, fundamental hypothesis, and principal viewpoints prevailing in Chinese academia are mainly from western especially American source. Many People have been unconscious consumers of western discourses. According to some of perceptions, for instance, Pakistan is said to have been politically failed, her government is reluctant to fight against terrorism, and her people shelter even support extremist groups, so on and so forth.

“I did not believe these conclusions because these ideas conflicted with my knowledge about Pakistan history. It has been proved once and again that both the people and the state of Pakistan have never given in to any challenges and pressures, they have been pursuing social justice. There must be something went wrong. So, I wanted to observe this land, the people and their real life with my own eyes, ears and minds. I hoped, with your help and through my efforts, I could discover the real picture so that someday I can present it to my students and colleagues in China.”

Those who spoke on the occasion included Mrs. Paveen Qadir Agha, Vice President (A&F), IIUI, Dr. Talib Hussain Sial, Director (Programs), IRD, IIUI, Professor Danishmand, Dean Faculty of Management Sciences (FMS), Mrs. Amna Mahmood, Department of History, Mr. Akhtar Hussain Sandhu, Department of Media & Communication Studies, Dr. Javed Mahmood Kasuri, Department of Sociology, Dr. Khalid Hassan Bukhari of Faculty of Education.

Professor Fateh Muhammad Malik, Rector IIUI giving his presidential remarks on the occasion stressed upon the need of strengthening academic relations between Pakistan and China. He appreciated role of Chinese academia in this context. Later Dr. Anwar Hussain Siddiqui, President IIUI presented a crest of the university to Dr. Qian Xauemei.

IIUI hosts Launching Ceremony of First Think Tank on China in Pakistan
Chinese Department and Confucius Study Center at IIUI soon
The International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI) witnessed launching of the first non-governmental and non-partisan think-tank — Pakistan-China Institute on a high note, with towering expectations to further strengthen relations between neighboring countries.

Speaking at the institute’s formal launch, speakers were of the view that the robust Chinese private sector and the vibrant Pakistani social sector needed to explore new avenues to further people-to-people contacts. According to them, the Pakistan-China Institute will act as “a force multiplier” in attaining this goal to meet the emerging challenges. The ceremony was attended by charged participants, mostly Chinese students.

Addressing the gathering, Chinese Ambassador Luo Zhaohui said China and Pakistan had common friends and common enemies and the two nations needed to ponder for more avenues of collaboration to further cement the bilateral ties. “Today, we are developing at 7.2 growth rate with $3,300 GDP ratio, while our foreign reserves are over $2 trillion and trade is at $2.2 trillion,” Mr Zhaohui noted. China stands by Pakistan as the government and people of Pakistan stood by China soon after its independence, he remarked. Mr Zhaohui said this was the reason that more than 10,000 Chinese engineers were working in Pakistan to help develop its infrastructure, adding that more than 600 students were studying at the IIU, reflecting the deep commitment Chinese people had for their Pakistani brethren. Senator Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, on the occasion, said military muscle, economic power, and cultural charisma were the ingredients of a world power, adding that blend them all together well and a superpower was ready. “I strongly believe that China with its exceptional economic, military might and political stability and strength has emerged as the biggest global power in today’s world,” Mr Hussain arrested.

Pakistan-China Institute Chairman Mushahid Hussain Sayed said: “Pakistan and China have a strategic relationship and there is a consensus across the board in Pakistan that China is Pakistan’s sincere friend. “Starting from 1963, China has stood by Pakistan in all weather conditions while Pakistan has also reciprocated the efforts of the Chinese people and its government.” Prof Fateh Mohammad Malik, Rector IIUI and its President Dr Anwar Siddiqui speaking on the occasion appreciated deep Rooted friendship between China and Pakistan. They said that both the countries have proved to be best friends in the world. They also lauded role of students from China who exceed 600 at IIUI in strengthening these relations. They announced that soon there will be Chinese department and Confucius study center at IIUI.

Among others who spoke on Pakistan-China relations and reminisced about their experiences included, Dr Rasool Bakhsh Palejo, Ikram Saigol, former diplomat Akram Zaki. The Chinese ambassador also inaugurated institute’s official website on this occasion. Earlier Chinese students of the IIUI arranged a photographic exhibition—Glorious China at the new campus of the university.
