Islamia College Peshawar is celebrating 100 years of its glorious services in the field of education, this year 2013.
Established in 1913, this institution has got tremendous recognition for its academic excellence across the globe, reported a private news channel.
The concept was idealized by Nawab Sir Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum and Sir George Roos Keppel, when the new province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was formed in 1901 after its separation from the Punjab. There was only one college known as Edwards College, in the province. This lack of educational opportunities in the region motivated the aforementioned leaders to establish an institution that would not only cater the academic needs of the region but also produce leaders from the region, which it did quite impressively or rather doing it for the last 100 years.
Completing 100 years of its intellectual brilliance, Islamia College Peshawar has come up with new dynamics in the recent past.
It is hoped that the interaction between students and media will help highlighting the historic academic as well as architectural role of the institution widely.
The presence of many distinguished old islamians will help the institution determining new ways and goals for achieving more laurels in the days to come.
Number of events are planned to mark 100 years of glory, and since almost every university in the province belong to ICU one way or the other, it is expected that many institutions will come forward and make these celebrations, a real success.
The Senior Alumni Association of the Islamia College also needs to play an effective role by sharing its overwhelming experiences, suggestions and commendation being a beacon of light for the new generation.
