The Chancellor of the Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET), Karachi, Jawaid Anwar, hosted a grand Eid Milan party at the university campus which reopened after a vacation of 10 days on July 11.

Accompanied by Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Jawaid H. Rizvi and Registrar Syed Sarfraz Ali, the Chancellor mixed up with the faculty members, the university staff and employees and extended to them heartiest greetings.

In his informal conversations, the Chancellor highlighted the importance of Eid celebration and described it as a reward from Allah for all those who spent the month long fasting.

He said that the occasion also provided a boost to the spirit of brotherhood. Jawaid Anwar observed that the Eid celebrations not only had religious essence but also carried a social connotation when Muslims showed the spirit of forgiveness and extend charitable support to their less privileged brethren.

The Eid Milan was largely attended, among others, by Dean Engineering, Prof Dr S M Makhdumi, Associate Dean Engineering Najeeb Siddiqui, Chairpersons of various engineering departments besides prominent members of the Aligarh Muslim University Old Boys Association (AMUOBA).

The Eid Milan was thoroughly enjoyed by all the participants as they got an opportunity to mingle informally.
