Vice Chancellor's Message

The true essence of “Democracy” would not have been comprehended had it not been linked with the martyred leader Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, who throughout her life endeavored for the restoration of Democracy in Pakistan. Who would ever forget her gallantry for being antagonist to country’s worst ever dictatorships. She continued her father’s legacy to fight against the grey factions of the society. In the process of restoration of Democracy she had to face profound resistance from the dictatorial regimes but nothing halt her in achieving this feat, she went on to become the protagonist of Democracy and the champion of women rights in Pakistan. Her endeavors gave identity to women in Pakistan by introducing numerous bills for the protections of women rights, women empowerment, social justice and economic development.

The SMBB Chair is just a small venture with massive objectives to discover her practical efforts towards the promotion of democracy, good governance and her struggle for the down trodden people of Pakistan. We have organized multiple conferences and seminars in the past and we are also planning to organize more lecture, seminars, national and international conferences in future as well. This would be the reminiscent of what she had accomplished and sacrificed for the uplifting of the country.
