Azadi Festival 2017

UMT Azadi Festival was diligently organized with the core hardcore passion of OCS and OPA at UMT. There was a soul to it. A soul that was vibrant, contagious and exuberant. Thousands of students and their families, faculty members, alumni’s and the general public were welcomed with huge posters denoting the “Azadi Festival – 14th August 2017”, to create opportunities to experience, celebrate and explore the diversity of Pakistan’s culture through performances and arts.

The festival opened with the recitation of the Holy Quran, followed by the national anthem of Pakistan along with extraordinary speeches by Chairman ILM Trust, Dr. Hasan Sohaib Murad and Rector UMT, Dr. Mohammad Aslam. Jumping castle, face painting, slides, scavenger’s hunt and 15 plus different competitions were organized to engage the kids at the festival. Puppet show, comedy skits, and magic tricks amused the crowd throughout the event.

Fifty (50) plus food stalls were placed that entertained the visitors with delicious food and beverage items. The different instruments like violin, tabla, and keyboard succeeded one another until they ultimately all entered in unison enchanting Pakistan National Songs. The live performance of Riff the band filled the air with moral and patriotic messages, the theatre had the students chanting and waving national flags. The 20 minutes of non-stop fireworks extravaganza was bigger and better than ever. The best evening of the year so far.

At the end of the event, UMT Director and Azadi Festival Chief Organizer Ibrahim Hasan Murad said that UMT is intended to infuse a sense of national pride and patriotism in students. He said the UMT would continue working for the development of the country.
