KARACHI, Feb 5 (APP): Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair said
on Sunday that Kashmir is the jugular vein and integral part of
Pakistan, as he called for the implementation of United Nations
resolutions on Kashmir in letter and spirit.
Speaking as chief guest at the 15th Convocation of Iqra University
here, the Governor said that today is ‘Youm i Kashmir’, and the entire nation was expressing solidarity with the Kashmiris.

resolution on Kashmir are implemented in letter and spirit and our
Kashmiri brothers get their due right to self determination.”

in various disciplines. As many as 16 gold medals were also awarded to
those students who excelled in their respective disciplines.

and the institutions of higher learning.

graduates towards the development in various sectors.
