The chief guest of the contest, Anis Ahmad, director of the International Islamic University, Islamabad, urged the students to follow the teachings of Quran and Sunnah in their daily lives. He said that the active student participation in the competition reflects our young generations deep love for Almighty Allah and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Winners of the Qirat competition included Hafiz Muhammad Hameed Raza of Punjab University as first, Qari Abdul Aziz of Gomal University as second and Hafiz Ubaidullah of Government College University, Lahore, as the third position holder. While in the Naat competition, Saad Zia of Government College University, Lahore, won the first prize, Asma Imdad of Punjab University got the second and Shumaila Kanwal of University of Sargodha received the third prize.

In the Mastermind Quiz, a total of eight teams from different institutions participated in the competition that was aimed at encouraging the young students to upscale their IQ level and knowledge orientation.

The competition consisted of three rounds and teams were asked questions from different categories including general knowledge, current affairs, sports, art & culture, science, literature, history, etc, in each round. The teams confronted each other with tough competition and the environment remained charged up throughout the event.

The quiz was won by the Government College University, Lahore, which took the title of the event whereas the University of Veterinary & Animal Sciences, Lahore, was the runners-up. Vice Chancellor FJWU Prof. Dr Saeeda Asadullah Khan, who was the chief guest, said the focus of participants should be towards learning through experience, and not only winning and losing. She also distributed prizes among the winners.

The best part of the womens week was the Artisan Mela which was inaugurated by the FJWU vice chancellor along with Constance Colding Jones, cultural attache at the US embassy. The two ladies visited various stalls. Ms Jones also got her hands decorated with mehndi.

Artists and students from all over the country had set up stalls of mostly handmade handicrafts, woodwork, rugs, clothing, accessories, interior decor items and greeting cards at the mela. Other stalls sold exquisite gems and jewellery as well as diverse and delicious cuisines. The main objective of organising the unique mela was to provide healthy environment and enjoyment to students. The Artisan Mela is open for three days, not only for the FJWU students, but also for females from outside the university.

On the second day of the Womens Week, bilingual declamation, mushaira, photography, painting and flower arrangement competitions will be held.
