The seminar began with the recitation of the Holy Quran followed by a welcome note by Prof Dr Iftikhar Ahmed, Head, Department of Psychology. Prof Dr Abdul Hameed, Dean SSS&H, graced the occasion with his presence along with the faculty of social sciences.

During his lecture, Dr Shahzad Shafqat highlighted that context is very important in order to comprehend the general analysis of our understanding of extremism.
