Earlier, the director general of the KP Judicial Academy, Hayat Ali Shah, said that they had set several targets, which apparently appeared impossible but they achieved it through hard work and determination.“Law states that ignorance of law is no excuse. It is responsibility of the state to make the people aware about law, but it has failed to fulfill this responsibility,” he said. He added that with the launching of the radio that objective would be achieved.
The station director of the radio and senior director research and publication judicial academy, Mohammad Aamir Nazir had given a presentation and highlighted the salient features of the Radio Meezan station stating that it was started with the mission to impart distant learning to those related to justice sector and to educate and sensitise masses, especially downtrodden, about their fundamental rights.
It is worth mentioning that on the Date of inauguration of Radio Meezan (March 20) the honorable Chief Justice PHC, Justice Dost Muhammad Khan has also his own birthday.
