  2. Mubarakis SKL, knowing you through my association with AKU since 1986 i am convinced that you are the right person for both positions, AKDN as well as UCA.

    As you are aware Mumtaz and I lived and worked in that region for almost 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed the assignments, i am sure you will too. In fact we were fortunate to have witnessed the ground breaking of the University in Khorog in 2004 by Mawlana Hazar Imam and President Emomali Rahmanov.

    we wish you and Khadijah best of health.

    Ghulam and Mumtaz
