Congratulate, Rahul Dev on his selection as GD Pilot in Pakistan Air Force. He hails from remote village of Tharparkar (Sindh) and belongs to a minority community. A country is defined by the way they treat their minorities. Historically a large number of people from minority communities have joined Pakistan Armed Forces as officers and It is always very encouraging to see our minorities prosper. This is a proof that Pakistan provides equal rights and opportunities to all of our citizens. All communities are sacred to us without the discrimination of caste, creed and colour. United we stand🇵🇰.

Professor Zulfiqar Bhutta of the Aga Khan University (AKU) has been ranked among the top 100 medicine scientists in the first edition of the top scientists ranking for medicine published by Researchcom, one of the major knowledge centres for research.

According to a statement, the ranking is based on criteria that considers h-index, which indicates how productive and influential a researcher is, publications and citations.

The ranking team examined 166,880 scientists on Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Graph, and over 65,743 profiles for the discipline of medicine.

Professor Bhutta is the only scientist from Pakistan and the low- and middle-income countries who made it to the top 100.

“As is the case for other recent recognitions, though a personal recognition, this ranking reflects the achievements of scores of young researchers and faculty members across the world who have worked with me on problems of the most marginalised and impoverished women and children in poor communities,” commented Professor Bhutta, who is the founding director of the Centre of Excellence in Women and Child Health and the Institute for Global Health and Development at AKU; and Co-Director of the SickKids Centre for Global Child Health, Robert Harding Chair in Global Child Health and Policy, and a Senior Scientist in the Child Health Evaluative Sciences programme at The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto.

“Congratulations to Professor Bhutta and his team for this great achievement. Their relevant research at AKU has changed lives not only in the countries where we seek to serve but also globally,” said AKU President Sulaiman Shahabuddin.
