islamabad -  A walk against corruption was organised at International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) on Monday to commemorate World Anti-Corruption Day, which is being observed today (Tuesday).

Rector IIU Dr Masoom Yasinzai, HEC Adviser Shaheen Khan, HEC officers, teachers and students participated in the walk. The participants also chanted slogans against corruption.

Walk was arranged separately both in male and female campuses to say no to corruption at all levels. The HEC has been organising walks on the eve of World Anti-Corruption Day in collaboration with National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the universities of Islamabad since long.

Corruption is an evil of society, which undermines the foundations of any country. Honesty is the pillar to sustain and stabilise the social fabric of society, said the IIUI rector in his address on the occasion. He said, “We would have to show hate to the word ‘corruption.’ Corruption is a poison for any nation. We will have to pass this message to all walks of life so that we may show to the nation and to the world that we are united against corruption.”

Dr Yasinzai further said, “As a teacher and as a student, though you are not involved in monetary matters, yet we have to be honest in performing our duties and see what we are doing and how we are doing.”
