A lecture on “Pakistan - A Misunderstood State: Reinvigorating Pakistan’s PR Strategy” was organised by NUST Centre for International Peace & Stability (CIPS) at the Islamabad campus on March 25, 2019. Mr Toaha B.Z. Qureshi, Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), was the keynote speaker. He asserted that Pakistan is the world’s most misconceived and misunderstood nation, and that every Pakistani should play their role in creating a positive image of our country.
Mr. Toaha Qureshi was conferred an MBE by Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II for his services rendered to the community. He is a British national and the CEO of School of Economics and Law (SOEL, formerly known as LCBMIT), and Chairman of the Forum for International Relations Development (FIRD) - a UK-based conflict resolution think tank. He is also Chairman of a leading social housing association in London. He is a philanthropist and has supported numerous humanitarian and charitable organisations to help displaced persons, orphans, prisoners, ex-offenders, and marginalised members of the community (e.g. Pakistan flood victims, Philippines typhoon victims).
