Be Involved in positive change.
(ISLAMABAD) - Peace and harmony must not be promoted only in words, but also in concrete actions of peace. The people from different communities can develop strong ties with each other, once their leaders interact and work jointly for harmony and tolerance, said Dr. Muhammad Amjid.
Talking to this reporter in an interview Dr. Amjid said that non-violence and dialogue is an effective tactic to resolve conflicts and remove prejudice, and therefore people from different faiths must come closer by taking joint initiatives for promotion of peace and harmony.
Dr. Muhammad Amjid, a business magnate, a futurist who is politically dialed in, lives in Islamabad where he has operated his business for the last two decades. A former student of Forman Christian College in Lahore, he settled in Islamabad and started his business and gradually stepped into the list of successful businessmen of the history of Islamabad/Rawalpindi. Being the Chief Executive of Pharmaceutical Production unit, he has been involved in research & development of different Pharmaceutical Products, which include Drugs, Vaccine & sera. In addition, the Open International University awarded a Ph.D to Dr. Amjid due to his work in complementary Medicine.
When examining the list of those doing charitable work among the poorest of this nation... trying to ease their misery, Dr. Muhammad Amjid'a name inevitably appears. This kind-hearted man comprehends the ache that the average man faces and fervently tries to alleviate the miseries of his surroundings.
Being practical, he started a non-profit organization under the name “SHELTAR International” in 1999. SHELTAR International; is a society for health, Environment, Literacy and Rehabilitation. It aims to bring social and behavioral change in the system through mass awareness and community participation.
Hepatitis is a virus that travels through the blood stream and attacks the liver. Pakistan is among those countries that have a high carrier rate of Hepatitis B and C that is more prevalent in men. A large number of people need to have screening for Hepatitis.
Talking about the humanitarian work done, he briefly described that though the tests are not very expensive but the fact is most of our community is poor and vulnerable so cannot they cannot afford these tests. Sheltar International identified and polish the potential of the community to avail the opportunity and also to improve their quality of life. Keeping in view the above mentioned problem, SHELTAR International supported women VOs and they have a series of activities against Hepatitis to provoke the rapidly spreading HBV & HCV in our local community. He is very positive in resolving the issues of the people.

I have full faith in the fact that there is God, I also have a solid belief that Pakistan is here to stay and we have everything. There is a shortage of nothing but committed leadership who work for the sake the country. I simply have no doubt in writing; he is committed to deliver to the nation.
