Objectives and Purposes:-

Vision

The Trust’s above-stated functions form part of the overall grand ideological vision of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Mohammad Iqbal as expounded in their countless authentic statements, writings and speeches. The focus of this vision is to build up Pakistan into a fully democratic welfare oriented modern state based on Islam’s universal approach of justice, fairplay and respect for all human beings, irrespective of caste, creed, language, colour or religion. The contours of this vision are fully reflected in the famous Objectives Resolution passed by Pakistan’s Constituent Assembly on March 12, 1949.

Mission

The Trust’s primary task or mission is to organize and encourage academic activities to impress upon the nation that the only way to preserve its hard-won freedom, identity and integrity is through establishing a truly Islamic, democratic and just social order conforming to the vision of our Founding Fathers as well as to the promises made during the great Pakistan Movement. This wake-up mission calls for continuously creating awareness about the following fundamentals of our existence:-

The Trust’s inspirational awareness creating programmes are meant for all segments of society, especially young generations who need to be equipped with full knowledge of our struggle for independence, our motivational Ideology and our great cultural heritage. This type of awareness can go a long way in encouraging youngsters to achieve their personal best, promote their life-long learning and skills, build positive self-esteem, prepare them for challenges of the future and make them an enviable asset of the nation.

Programmes

The scope of Trust’s mission is wide and varied, requiring long and sustained efforts. It has undertaken a series of steps for spreading its message across the country and abroad including the Islamic World and other friendly countries with whom we would like to launch an exchange programme in terms of joint research projects and mutual visit of scholars and academicians from both sides. We believe that our relations with Islamic World are sea deep and much higher than Himalaya. We hope that our research links with Islamic World will develop day-by-day. In this context we would like to promote, in the near future, the idea of establishing Pakistan Chairs in different universities of the Islamic World.
As for the Trust is concerned it plans to establish a specific Study Desk on Islamic World at its main campus at Shahrah-i-Quaid-i-Azam, which will be responsible for undertaking joint research ventures focusing common interests of Islamic World and Pakistan in different fields since they have common friends and foes as seen in their decades long friendship.
