KARACHI: Acting Vice Chancellor of Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST), Prof. Dr. Muhammad Ziauddin said that today’s Chemistry Expo only meant that, we should share different ideas with each other and we should share the ideas of the future technologies so that humanity could benefit from it in the future.
He said this after visiting stalls on the opening ceremony of “Chemistry Expo 2022” organized under the aegis of Chemistry department of FUUAST here.
He said that the educational subjects, whether related to arts or science, these did not come into existence at once, but before that, a very long journey of human history was behind it.
He said that the real society of man was devoid of reason, consciousness and reasoning. Gradually, when humanity developed, sciences came into existence along with it, and especially when pure sciences came into existence, the map of the history of the world was changed.
He said that from the journeys of the ancient caves and the man living in the den of trees to the modern era and the very modern time coming in the future, all the journeys we have made are due to knowledge.
