CPS, COMSATS University Islamabad organized a seminar on June 28th, 2022, titled “Pakistan’s being on the Cusp of South Asia, Central Asia and Middle East: Pearl, Perils and Pitfalls; crisis and Opportunities.” Head CPS Dr. Ghulam Shabbir, in his opening remarks said that Pakistan being the fulcrum of three grand regions has a wide potentials of integrating socio-economic and cultural strengths of these belts, yet as a community we are like those who forget way amidst shifting sand dunes of the desert. Former Naval Chief, Admiral (R) Zafar Mahmood Abbasi said Pakistan has become like a ship adrift amidst the stormy waves of sea. We must resurrect the vision of Iqbal and Jinnah to set the dimension afresh. Senior seasoned politician Syeda Abida Hussain said we have achieved several milestones, yet we need scientific and technological education more advanced and equal to the needs of the time. She said socio-economic disparities and class system is a great hurdle in the way of our progress and prosperity. Head CPS in his closing remarks said the major strength of communities lies in common aspirations, history and cultural values. The geography of Arabian Peninsula was such a valueless entity that the Persia and Byzantine never bothered to conquer them, but when they were united on the ideology of Islam within thirty years of their splendid career, they destroyed the corrupt socio-economic structure of both empires and assumed the wheel of history. Geographies are peaceful abodes of communities, but the recurrent pattern of history suggests when communities forget their history and ideology, their geographies forget them.
