T.I.P was established in 1994 (correct me if I’m wrong). It was a small institute inside a bungalow (like the city office). Then in 1998 we shifted to the new campus (here at Ghaghar Phatak). The construction was not complete by this time. And only important buildings were constructed. Important buildings included the main building, cafeteria and hostels, but not a mosque.
Often when construction of some project or industry starts, the first block laid down is of a mosque. But on the contrary, mosque was given least preference. Isn’t it strange that there is no mosque in T.I.P when there is strength of 300 Muslim students? Every time for prayers the students have to run sometimes to the processing lab, sometimes to the spinning lab, sometimes to the cafeteria and sometimes to the hostels.
President T.I.P should look into this matter seriously and get the mosque constructed as soon as possible. Also the President TISF Mr. Abdul Saboor should reach out for sponsors and I know that he is very much capable of doing this. I’ll also try to find one.
