C3A and NCSC Conduct an Awareness Session on the Use of Drugs and its Consequences
Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF), in collaboration with C3A and NUST Community Service Club (NCSC), conducted a seminar on the use of drugs and its consequences. The seminar took place at NIT seminar hall on 20th December 2016.

The seminar began at 1500 hours with the recitation of Holy Quran. Dr Siham Sikander from C3A then gave a rather brief address in which he pointed out the role NUST, particularly C3A, has been playing to raise awareness regarding this menace. He further added that there is a dire need to raise awareness regarding the issue and bring more of the drug addicts in the very fold of rehabilitation.

He was followed up by Mr Jibran Ahmed Yousafzai, Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) who with the aid of a video documentary described the current situation of drug usage in Pakistan. Causing chills to run down the spine, the documentary made those sitting in chairs to realise the immediate need to take actions. The last part of the documentary focused on some of these actions taken by ANF. To complement the documentary, Mr Jibran highlighted different ways in which general audience can be involved in eradicating this evil from the society. Warning of its very horrendous consequences, he briefed on some of the symptoms of drug addiction. His words were allowed to work deep into audience’s hearts who were now fully appreciating the need to increase awareness and seek prevention of drug usage.

At about 1600 hours, Brig. Hannad Ahmed Dogger, ANF, commenced his address, emphasising on continuous improvements being made in recent past. Adding further, he said that ANF, backed with the youth of the nation, can make a big difference in this regard.In conclusion of the seminar, a question-answer session was arranged in which the queries of the audience were addressed.​
