SRINAGAR, Apr 8: The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has expressed her grief over the demise of former VC Kashmir University, noted educationist, rationalist and an ardent votary of peace, Prof Riyaz Punjabi.
In her condolence message Mehbooba Mufti described Prof Punjabi as someone who unflinchingly strived to reform the higher education sector, laid focus on quality research and at the same time increased the administrative efficiency of institutions in whichever capacity he served.
“The ease with which Prof Punjabi would bridge the academic and political streams was seamless. He was always brimming with ideas, focusing on improving the quality and broad basing the scope of education sector. His constant advocacy of skill based technical education as an elixir for the ever exlusive question of providing employment to the educated youth was visionary,” Mehbooba said.
“His passing has deeply saddened the members of the higher research and education community and has left behind a void which is difficult to be filled. My thoughts and prayers are with Taranum Riyaz, his wife and his children. I wish them strength in this hour of grief and pray to almighty Allah to bestow his soul highest place in Jannat,” Mehbooba prayed.
