Upon arrival, the guest was greeted by Lt Gen Naweed Zaman, HI (M), (Retd), Rector NUST, followed by a one-on-one meeting between the two. Citing his extensive experience in coping with natural disasters, his philanthropic initiatives, and contributions as the first Human Rights Ambassador to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the Rector congratulated Mr Abrar-ul-Haq on recently assuming the charge of Chairman PRCS. He hoped that under his able leadership, the institution would work its way up in achieving the well-defined objectives, which draw upon the 7 fundamental principles of the RCRC Movement, namely Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality.
