I am pleased to be here today at the opening ceremony of the mega event of Islamic Banking & Finance Awareness Drive-2017 by Dunya Media Group which was aimed at creating awareness and removing misconceptions about Islamic banking and finance in the country. Dunya Media Group deserves appreciation on successful completion of this awareness raising venture. I am hopeful that results of this campaign will be long lasting due to effective collaboration among various stakeholders and arranging multiple programs for public and targeted groups like students and business communities all across the country.
