Hamdard College of Science celebrates Yaum-e-Baabul Islam
Karachi  :July 23: The staff of Hamdard College of Science & Commerce organised a special meeting to highlight the achievements of Muhammad Bin Qasim.
Qasim was an Umayyad general who conquered the Sindh and Punjab regions along the Indus River, which are now a part of Pakistan, for the Umayyad Caliphate.
He was born and raised in the city of Taif (in modern day Saudi Arabia). Qasim’s conquest of Sindh and Punjab enabled further Islamic expansion into South Asia.
Speaking on the occasion, Principal Saba Khalid traced the history of Sindh before the advent of Islam and how Raja Dahir was defeated by a small army of Qasim in 1712 AD near Hub adjacent to Madinat-al-Hikmah, the place chosen by Hamdard founder Hakim Mohammed Saeed.


She said Saeed had introduced the tradition of celebrating Yaum-e-Baabul Islam so that we could commemorate the memory of our benefactors.


Senior lecturer Saba Masroor said observing the day of the conquest of Sindh was actually meant to observe the day of creation of Pakistan, because if Sindh was not conquered by Qasim, Pakistan would never have come into existence.


Principal speaker, Madinat-al-Hikmah Vice President Fatema Munir Ahmed, said Qaim was an intelligent and cultured general.


She said that he was known for his skilful military planning, fighting spirit and excellent political administration, highlighting the ruling dynasties of Sindh and their atrocities, religious intolerance and extreme excesses on the people.


The three years of Qasim’s rule had changed the destinies of the people of Sindh, she added. The special meeting was attended by faculty members, educationists and other dignitaries.
