In his introductory briefing, Shahid Latif Qadri; Managing Director of Minhaj Education Society, said that 572 schools were working in the country where thousands of the students were getting education. He said that the credit to establish this huge network of educational institutions went to Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri who has taken it upon himself to spread knowledge and awareness in the society.

He told that those students who got 80% or more than 80% marks were participating in the ceremony. Minhaj Education Society is proud of its students who brought a good name to their institutions through their performance. He said that the purpose of the ceremony was to honour and encourage the position-holding students.

Sayyid Bilal Gillani, guest of honour on the occasion, said that Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri is the asset of the Muslim Umma who is busy spreading the light of knowledge and awareness to every nook and corner of the country despite limited resources. He can rightly be credited for his contributions. Intellectuals and scholars like him are very rarely born. We would have to support MQI and person like Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri for positive change in the society. He said that if such efforts continued, a day would come when the darkness of ignorance would evaporate.

Amir-e-Tehreek Miskin Faiz-ur-Rahman Durrani said that Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan gave one Ali Garh, whereas Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has promised to give one hundred Ali Garhs.
