Addressing the ceremony, Noorullah Saddiqui said that imparting moral training to the children is the responsibility of the parents. He said that the MQI has designed training and educational programmes for children as well as the adults for their character building and moral and spiritual training. He said that the Eagers is one such forum that has been set up specifically for the training of the children, adding that this forum has been holding workshops successfully throughout the country.
Ms. Hafsa Badar said on the occasion that the MQI is focusing its attention on reforming the conduct of the people. She said that the character building is a prior area of attention. She said that if the parents want that their children should grow into useful citizens of the country, then they should pay their attention to their upbringing and moral training from childhood.

The parents expressed their happiness and said that in the age of computer and games, it is highly significant that such workshops are held to teach kids about mannerism. They thanked Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri and the administration of Eagers for this wonderful initiative and hoped that these workshops will continue to take place in the future as well.
