ISLAMABAD—The Di­rec­tor Gen­eral (Aware­ness and Pre­ven­tion) Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau (NAB) Aliya Rashid have urged the youth to play their role in curb­ing the men­ace of cor­rup­tion from the so­ci­ety. She was de­liv­er­ing a mo­ti­va­tional lec­ture on “the duty of youth is to chal­lenge the cor­rup­tion” here at Quaid-i-Azam Univer­sity (QAU) as part of cam­paign on aware­ness and pre­ven­tion against cor­rup­tion and proac­tive ef­fort to en­cour­age youth to iden­tify and re­port cor­rup­tion.

Aliya Rashid talked about the var­i­ous forms of cor­rup­tion and how they are dam­ag­ing our so­ci­ety and re­minded the Quaid-iAzam Muham­mad Ali Jin­nah’s words that cor­rup­tion is a poi­son and we must put it down with iron hand.

While de­liv­er­ing lec­ture she said that na­tion be­longs to its youth. “Young peo­ple are one of the most im­por­tant agents of change in the fight against cor­rup­tion. Youth have the power to change the so­cial, po­lit­i­cal and eco­nom­i­cal dy­nam­ics that un­der­lie a re­signed ac­cep­tance of bribery and other forms of cor­rup­tion. It is the duty of ev­ery young per­son to pre­vent their fam­ily from cor­rup­tion.” said the DG NAB.

Aliya Rashid ad­vised the fe­male students that when they will get marry it is their duty to take a pledge from her hus­band that he will say “No to Cor­rup­tion”. She said that­moth­ers have a ma­jor im­pact in bring­ing up chil­dren and their at­ti­tude and de­vel­op­ment, “Say No to Cor­rup­tion” is in­tended to tar­get young ladies in Uni­ver­si­ties and Col­leges who are go­ing to be fu­ture moth­ers of our chil­dren.

While men­tion­ing the steps taken by Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau to cre­ate aware­ness, she said that slo­gan “Say No to Cor­rup­tion” has been printed on postage stamp, util­ity bills, CNIC car­rier pa­pers, driv­ing li­censes, Print­ing of Color­ing Books for School go­ing chil­dren, ATM Ma­chines, Rail­way Tick­ets and Air­port Screens, thus spread­ing the mes­sage to ev­ery­one.

A story book has also been pub­lished where the char­ac­ter Gogi is also say­ing No to Cor­rup­tion. QAU Vice Chan­cel­lor Dr. Javed Ashraf lauded the ef­forts of NAB for cre­at­ing aware­ness among the youth. A large num­ber of students, staff and fac­ulty mem­bers at­tended the lec­ture.
