International Islamic University, Islamabad moot leaves a bad taste in mouth

Islamabad: A two-day international conference held this week at International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI) disappointed the university administration and students, as most of the speakers strayed from the topic 'Islam and Modernity'.

IIUI official Mehmood A Farooqi said that the conference was arranged for discussions on the topic for a better understating of Islam but speakers did not remain focussed.

Many of the speakers were found complaining about shortage of time, 20 minutes to each speaker to read the papers.

One of the students, who attended the conference, pointed out that the discussions followed by the addresses of different speakers had further confused her.

Most of the scholars preferred to comment on other's points of view. A very hot debate took place between Prof Shahid Alam and Prof Pervez Hoodbhoy when they commented on each other's presentations.

Unfortunately, they started criticising each other's personality, which left the audience surprised.

The IIUI administration was not satisfied with the proceedings of the conference, on which it had spent over Rs 800,000, said a senior official.
