The Baloch Culture Day was celebrated here at the Government College University on Tuesday under the auspices of the Society for Culture and Heritage (SOCH). A large number of students, some of them wearing traditional Balochi dresses, turbans and waistcoats paraded through the main campus.
Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Asghar Zaidi led the walk appreciating the enthusiasm of his University students in removing misconceptions, protecting and promoting awareness about their cultures, values and heritage. He said celebrating various cultures was aimed at spreading awareness, promoting cultural integration and making efforts to keep alive all customs, traditions, cultures and unique lifestyles of people of the province.
He said GCU is a mini-Pakistan where students from different cultural backgrounds study together and also learn from each other about their customs, traditions and lifestyles. He said GCU constituted different cultural societies and celebrate cultures of all regions.
