10th Youth Leaders Conference begins

KARACHI: The 10th Youth Leaders Conference with the theme of ‘Eman-Ittehad-Tanzeem-Inqilab’ began at a local hotel on Friday.

The aim of the event is to provide youth with an opportunity to explore their talent and use it for the construction and progress of the country.

The six-day conference was attended by as many as 350 youngsters from the country. The stage and the conference hall were decorated with balloons, having colours of Pakistani flag. The participants were hoisting national flags, which bestowed the ceremony a very patriotic look.
Sports and Youth Affairs Department Secretary Syed Shoaib Siddiqui inaugurated the conference.

In his address, he said that youth were the most important segment of the society and what the department was willing to do was to realise the value of youth to all sectors of life, including politicians, entrepreneurs and others in general and to policy makers in particular.

He said that though the society was facing several negative trends and problems, they also had a beacon of hope in the form of a large number of talented youth. In the Western and developed world, Pakistan was considered as a fortunate country due to its rich percentage of youth in its population, he said.

Siddiqui further said that the society had also some complains about the youth, so it was their duty to redress them and prove themselves as responsible citizens and active members of the society. He urged youth not to waste their time as time and tide wait for none.

He said: “If you want to go abroad to seek knowledge, research, education or even for earning money then you can go, but must remember that none would facilitate, accommodate or respect you as your motherland.”

School of Leadership Director Kamran Rizvi said in a very energetic manner while shedding light over the theme of the conference that youth would play a significant role in eliminating ongoing rising desperation in the society. He told audience: “Revolution comes in a nation when it leaves dual standards, spoiling time and telling lie.”

Rizvi said that they had changed the famous slogan ‘Unity-Faith-Discipline’ into ‘Faith-Unity-Discipline and Revolution’ because unity could not be created without having faith. Faith is the core factor to gain success in the life, he said.

He said that indeed Pakistani nation had not yet experienced freedom as liberty could not be gained without bounding ourselves to discipline. He urged youth to focus on implementing their knowledge, instead of only feeling proud of having knowledge.

The conference was being organised in collaboration with 26 corporate partners. The representatives of these companies and institutions also expressed their views shortly on the occasion.

The conference will continue till Wednesday. During the conference participants will learn leadership values and other required skills of the time.Daily Times.
