Prof M Subhan Qureshi and Mr Abdul Rahman Ilyas coined the name “Dairy Science Park” during 2010 in Egypt, for the struggle to utilize the livestock resources of the region for prosperity of the people initiated by Prof Qureshi on advice of Sardar Mehtab Ahmad Khan Abbasi, Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa during 1998.
Various provincial dignitaries supported this sacred mission and Mr Inayatullah Khan took the message very seriously and pursued it through release of ADP funds and support of an autonomous DSP Board. He was especially comfortable with the idea of self-accountability through an Endowment Fund, needing no operational fund. Mr Akram Khan Durrani has supported the mission as Ex-Chief Minister KP and Federal Minister for Housing and Works, Government of Pakistan. The Chairman HEC, Prof Mukhtar Ahmad has been very kind in supporting DSP as Center of Excellence.
I am thankful to faculty members, students, staff and the administration of the University of Agriculture Peshawar, for their constant support. Especially our family had to bear the tremendous stress and financial burden during the execution process. I consider it as a sacred mission and my father Prof Qureshi has presented it as a gift before the people of the Region, especially those hit with poverty, illiteracy, and food insecurity.
We envision KP, FATA, and Northern Areas of Pakistan, and the adjoining regions of Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and China as a hub of livestock and poultry entrepreneurs backed up by quality control, R&D, and marketing support organizations, with prosperous people, accepted under #SDGAction9671 of the United Nations.
