On 30th August, three debating sessions were organized in all the committees of the LCMUN. A number of topics of national and international interest were discussed in the committees. More than 200 delegates, including Gallians, who had prepared these topics with great interest, enthusiastically participated in the debates and developed discussions in a very civilized manner.
At night, a bonfire event was arranged where students displayed their talent in a variety of very interesting skits, singing and dancing. Everyone enjoyed the wonderful show that the students had prepared for them. Along with Gallians, participation of a large number of outstation delegates, including a group of Sindhi students who presented their cultural dance, added to the charm of the show that left a lasting impression on the memory of the spectators.
On the final day of LCMUN, all the committees drew conclusions and came up with solutions to the issues under discussion. Active participation of all the delegates in the debates was truly commendable. The closing ceremony of LCMUN was held in the afternoon. Mr. Rashid Mafzool Zaka, Executive Director of Pakistan Institute for Parliamentary Services, was the chief guest. The best and outstanding delegates, and chairpersons were awarded with souvenirs and certificates.
Mr. Rashid, at the outset of his speech, thanked the Principal for inviting him to one of the most prestigious institution of the most beautiful country, Pakistan, where he had the opportunity to talk to the daughters of Fatima Jinnah, Shaheens of Iqbal and the sons of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He congratulated the LCMUN Team for organizing such a great event where students could explore their talent and know about the real functions on UN. He highlighted Quaid’s vision of parliamentary democracy. Narrating an anecdote that depicts Quaid’s vision of democracy, he said,” Two days before the creation of Pakistan, 0n 12th of August 1947, a resolution was under debate in the first national assembly whether Muhammad Ali Jinnah be called Quaid-e-Azam or not. For those historic 45 minutes, Father of the Nation, Muhammad Ali Jinnah kept quiet because conflict of interest was involved. He allowed each and every member to debate and talk against or in favour of the resolution. This is the essence of true democracy.” He advised the students to have unity among their ranks as that is the need of the hour. The Chief Guest appreciated the efforts of the MUN Team for organizing the event in an efficient manner.
Finally, after a farewell dinner for the delegates, a musical concert was arranged. Renowned singer Sahir Ali Bagga and DJ Mohad Waseem entertained the audience with their splendid performance.
