Dr Mumtaz-ul-Hassan said that hundreds of graduates of the College are rendering their services in multiple fields not only in Pakistan but also abroad. He said in addition to the blend of education in religious and contemporary sciences imparted here, the College also focuses on character building and moral education, something that distinguishes it from other educational institutions.
