I would like to record my message for public as well as all stakeholders of Shah Abdul Latif University, Khairpur on the eve of New Year-2021. Since joining as Vice Chancellor of this third largest Public Sector Premier University of Sindh Province, I have taken pragmatic efforts to bring transparency accountability and streamlined the Departments, Institutes and Sections on war footing.

Education brings radical change and it is also a catalyst of change, it plays dynamic role in the character building, integrity, promote the essence of personality development and diversified culture of tolerance, interfaith dialogue and religious harmony.

I am highly grateful to teaching fraternity, officers, employees and my future generation (students). They have extended full cooperation, in order to run the administrative affairs of this institution. I have adopted policy of seniority-cum-merit, as result; there is no any discrimination on my part. However, I have also promoted the sense of consultation and coordination and teamwork spirit. The confidence building has emerged in all stakeholders with my working in impartial status. It is worth mentioning that most of the Departments of Faculty of Social Sciences and two Departments of Faculty of Natural Sciences shifted and housed in the new Academic Block including offices of the Dean Faculty of Social Sciences and Dean Faculty of Natural Sciences having state-of-art facilities. The Office of the Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC), Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) and Directorate of Postgraduate Studies (PGS) were facing acute shortage of space, these offices have been shifted in the newly constructed Extension of Administration Block building having modest facilities.

Despite severe and immense financial challenges, my utmost priority is to disburse the salaries, pensionary benefits and other financial liabilities on time. It is worth noted that the salary was disburse on January 2, 2021, keeping in view of the feelings and needs of the lower staff and other staff despite holiday, the University HBL Branch remained open for this purpose. It is noteworthy that stringent efforts are underway to overcome the current financial crisis with the help of Government of Sindh and Federal Government in the mode of Special Bailout Package. My new initiative along with my team for the year 2021 will be as under.

•    The Automation of all Sections
•    Fund Raising Campaign
•    Accreditation of Market Oriented Teaching Departments/Institutes
•    Restoration of Halted M.S, M. Phil and Ph.D Programs

•    Establishment of Beautification Cell
•    Acquiring of Land for Sub-Campuses

I am confident that this New Year-2021 will provide comfortable, peaceful, conducive and congenial atmosphere for this Alma mater established after the name of great Sufi Saint of the World Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai (R.A), whose ideals, teaching and philosophy is based on universal peace, love, affection and prosperity.

SALU will touch its heights of progress in the way of academic excellence, research and physical development and would impart quality education to the students of the class below poverty line and also marginalized communities.

I assure you that in the capacity of Vice Chancellor, I will render my services for the cause of nation building, without any fear, tilt, liking & disliking and adhere the University Code, rules and regulations for the prompt service delivery, without unprecedented delay on the basis of merit and transparency.

May ALLAH Almighty bring happiness, rejoices, good health and passions in the life of my nation and countrymen.
