SARGODHA-Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif phone call to Pir of Sial Sharif Khawaja Hameeduddin Sialvi on Sunday seemed to have simmered down the “boiling political situation” on the last day of a deadline issued by the latter for resignation of the Punjab Law Minister.
Both the chief minister and Pir Hameeduddin agreed to resolve all the issues through “mutual consultation and in an amicable manner.”
It is to be recalled that Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi had threatened to launch “fill the prisons movement” from December 3rd, if Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah failed to resign from his post.
According to reliable sources in Sial Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz assured Pir of Sial Sharif Kh Hameeduddin Sialvi that the government never desired to make any amendment to Khatme Nubuwwat Law and nor can even consider it in the future. Sources informed that the issue of law minister resignation was also discussed during the telephonic talk and Shehbaz Sharif said that he would visit Sial Sharif in person in the next few days and meet Pir Sahib of Sial Sharif to address all issues in an amicable manner.
Meanwhile, Sahibzada Muhammad Qasim Sialvi held a press conference at Sial Sharif Sunday evening wherein he confirmed that Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif had a telephonic conversation with Pir Khawaja Hameeduddin Sialvi and discussed the issues pertaining to Khatme Nubuwwat. He informed that Shehbaz Sharif assured that he would visit Sial Sharif in the next few days and would address all reservations of Pir Kh Sialvi Sahib.
On the occasion, MPA Sahibzada Ghulam Nizamuddin Sialvi said that all issues raised by Pir Khawaja Hameeduddin Sialvi stand resolved after talks between the Punjab CM and Pir Sahib, adding that all the followers accept whatever decision the Pir Sahib would make.
On the other hand, MNA Ghulam Bibi Bharwana declared that they are obedient to the orders of Khawaja Hameeduddin Sialvi, expressing her hope that all issues would be resolved during the visit of Punjab Chief Minister to Sial Sharif.
Commenting on development, local political pundits said that the telephonic conversation between the chief minister and Pir Sahib of Sial Sharif has eliminated all the rumours surrounded the situation.
Workshop highlights importance of entrepreneurship
Lincoln Corner University of Sargodha (UoS) organised a workshop titled ‘Entrepreneurship Training’ on Sunday for the promotion of start-ups and entrepreneurship training in the district.
It is a five-day extensive workshop in which students will learn about basic and operational concepts about the entrepreneurship. The workshop is being held under the auspices of Sargodha Chamber of Commerce and Industry, UoS Department of Business Administration, the US Consulate and local entrepreneurs.
This training is a pilot project to make students think out of the box about the definition of employment. Zymal Umar is the youngest entrepreneur of Pakistan. She has visited the United States of America as a motivational speaker and also won Prince Abdul Aziz Award for Children Pioneer/Ecopreneur Award in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Her presence at the workshop was inspirational for all the participants of the training. Zymal has made hand-made bags and donated all the money she earned to SOS Children’s Village, orphan house, fountains house, poor people and widows.
Zymal’s social entrepreneurial idea is to promote use of recycling. She uses newspapers and recycles materials for making her bags. Her idea is to promote greenery and degeneration of plastic which causes environmental pollution.
She was invited to talk with participants of the workshop. She shared her story of success and achievement. She highlighted the importance of team work, hard work, consistency and persistence to promote social entrepreneurship. “It’s never late to start working,” she believes.
Zymal’s idea is a real lifetime example for the promotion of entrepreneurship among students. Such examples realize the importance of community development through using limited resources they have and challenge all hurdles they find on their way. The participants of the training asked Zymal questions about her success and journey to the United States. UoS Lincoln Corner appreciated her arrival at the workshop.
