Incompetence trumps bigotry: How NA has actually failed to rename QAU’s Dr Abdus Salam Centre
The Lower Chamber of the Parliament unanimously adopted a resolution to rename the Quaid-i-Azam University’s Dr Abdus Salam Center. However, in their haste and bigotry, the members displayed their incompetence by mentioning the wrong facility.
As soon as the resolution was passed, social media buffs lashed out at Captain (r) Safdar, for trying to rename the department, named after Nobel Laureate Dr Abus Salam. However, it turned out that the resolution had actually failed to rename the center.
The resolution moved by Capt (retd) Muhammad Safdar stressed that the department should be renamed after another scientist, Abu al Fatah Abdul Rehman Al- Khazini. However, interestingly, it mentioned the physics department of the varsity, instead of the National Centre for Physics.
