In 2019, The Shaikh Ayaz University, Shikarpur, took a significant step towards fostering interfaith harmony by establishing the Interfaith Harmony Center. This laudable initiative was brought to fruition through the unwavering commitment and leadership of the Honorable Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. G. Raza Bhatti. The establishment of the center was closely aligned with the overarching vision set forth by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, which emphasizes the importance of sustainable development and collaborative educational practices. It also harmoniously resonated with the university’s core goal of striving for educational excellence and distinction.
Under the guidance of Prof. Dr. G. Raza Bhatti, the Interfaith Harmony Center emerged as a dynamic platform dedicated to nurturing understanding, dialogue, and mutual respect among individuals from diverse religious backgrounds. This center served as a beacon of hope, striving to bridge gaps and build connections within the university community and beyond. By promoting open discussions, organizing interfaith events, and encouraging scholarly pursuits into the rich tapestry of various faiths, the center aimed to cultivate a culture of unity and cooperation.
The establishment of the Interfaith Harmony Center marked a progressive step towards creating an environment where differences are celebrated, and commonalities are embraced. This initiative not only reflected the values of the university but also contributed to the broader societal goal of promoting peace, harmony, and coexistence among people of different faiths.
