“Up till 20 years ago there was no dental college in Karachi. Dr. S. Baqar Askary who had pressed its need and articulated his vision to establish a dental college. However, he received no encouragement from any university or the medical profession; to which I, myself, are a witness. Like a true visionary. Dr. Askary pursued his dream with tenacity and resolve and succeeded in founding, in 1992, the pioneering dental college in Karachi..
Presently by all accounts I know that Fatima Jinnah Dental College is one of the best if not the best in the country.”
