I am delighted to extend my heartiest felicitations to the University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir on successfully completing more than three decades of academic excellence. About 33 years back, University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir was established with a view to providing higher education facilities to the youth of Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Pakistan.

For a developing country like Pakistan, importance of education and its applications in practical fields cannot be overlooked. The University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir has a mission and responsibility to fulfill towards the society.

I am pleased to observe that University, despite its young age and financial stringencies, has been able to attain a respectable position in the comity of national universities. The University is staffed with talented, highly qualified, committed and dedicated faculty headed by the Vice Chancellor working in an atmosphere conducive to learning and research activities. I am happy to see that University is striving hard to achieve a prominent status at national and international levels by creating a dynamic educational environment.
I hope that the students will be prepared to be valuable members of a rapidly changing society which requires responsible and participative global citizens. The University is alive to the needs and necessities of the changing times. It has allowed its students to have an access to the field of learning of their interests by introducing new disciplines and faculties.
I am confident that graduates of this University will positively contribute their acquired knowledge for betterment of society and prove themselves as role models in their respective professional careers.
