On the recommendation of the Provincial Minister for Specialized Healthcare & Medical Education Khwaja Salman Rafique, the University of Engineering & Technology (UET) Vice Chancellor Fazal Khalid has agreed to name the stadium of the university after religious preacher Junaid Jamshaid.

Salman Rafique said that a formal ceremony would be held on February 6 and that the family members of Junaid Jamshaid would also attend the function.

Junaid Jamshaid, who was killed in plane crash near Chitral, was a class fellow and close friend of Salman Rafique at UET.

Rafique called on the UET VC Dr Fazal Khalid on Tuesday and thanked him for approving his recommendation.
