He appreciated the efforts of NHLH division, through the letter, for arranging National Calligraphy Exhibition ‘Noon Walqalam’ last month and its efforts for strengthening and raising this noble art to higher level.
Dr. Halit Eren said that arranging calligraphy exhibition by the division in Islamabad was a milestone toward promotion of great Islamic art of calligraphy.
