Karachi: Karachi Medical and Dental College (KMDC) recently organized Annual Sports week with full zeal and zest. The event was inaugurated by Pakistan’s renowned hockey play, Olympian Islahuddin Siddiqui. The event was chaired by KMDC Principal, Prof. Dr S. Mahmood Haider. Along with faculty members, students and their parents witnessed the inaugural event.
In his inaugural speech, Mr Islahuddin noted that students should inculcate sports in their daily life routine in order to stay active. The medical students need to be mentally and physically healthy. Hence, they should take some time out from their studies and participate in sports related activity, Siddiqui said.
Olympian Islahuddin suggested that KMDC should start a hockey team, which could get trained at his training institute. He said, “I expect that the hockey team will produce better players that can later make Pakistan proud.”
Islahuddin Siddiqui congratulated the organizing team of the event and appreciate their efforts.
While addressing the audience, Dr S. Mahmood Haider said “under the umbrella of KMDC, many events are organized annually to give platform to students. This gives an opportunity to them to actively participate and demonstrate their skills. The aim of such events is to give ‘Future of Pakistan’ a platform.”
