He introduced basic norms and values of the institute by sharing its vision of spreading religious harmony, peace studies and environmental sustainability through the paintings and drawings prepared by the students. The Vice Chancellor Dr. Shaikh on the occasion queried the students about their sketches, paintings and designs.
