Attended by a large number of SUE lecturers, government officials, and MPs the forum for fighting drug addiction and drug awareness was arranged in Caucher Birkar Hall at Social and Cultural Centre of the University.
SUE President Dr Ahmed Dezaye delivered a speech in which he emphasized a number of significant aspects of drug addiction. By arranging this forum he encouraged teachers at colleges of Islamic Studies, Arts and Law to point out the factors of drug addiction along with solutions to KRG institutions.
He also suggested that the media, schools, and mosques should have an active role in promoting awareness among the people particularly the youth. On the other hand, drug smugglers should be punished duly. He also suggested that there should be a clear distinction between the people who use these drugs and who are engaged in making a financial profit out of it.
Later the forum was arranged in three panels; six researchers participated in which they presented various topics about awareness and methods of confronting the phenomenon.
