The present government is taking revolutionary steps in this direction so civil society and welfare organizations should also come forward to play their part in this.
He further stated that Ilma University has always remained at the forefront in solving these issues and encouraged those individuals who took strides in this direction. Ilma University has proven to be a strong force in this monumental domain. Dr Mansoor also resolved that he along with his entire team would be actively involved in Karachi Save the Environment Forum’s noble cause.
This auspicious forum was attended by the esteemed environmental experts, lawyer community, health professionals, reps of NGOs, teachers of all levels, communities and civil society. The prominent participants shed light on the different aspects of environmental damage.

It would certainly accomplish its paramount mission.
