Department of Physical Education

COD's Message

Sports are not merely meant for recreation; rather this word has a wide scope. Sports are an essential part of life. They promote physical fitness and cultivate some desirable qualities necessary for human progress. It is because of sports that the body is being kept fit and healthy. Even the Greek philosophers hundreds of years ago had believed that healthy body was necessary for a healthy mind. Moreover, Sports form an important part of any modern education worth the name that cannot be done in
the close atmosphere of the class rooms, and can be performed in the open air of the playing area. The significance of sports can be realized by a message of Quaid-E-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, which was sent to the first Pakistan Olympics Games held on 12th April 1948. He said: “For sound minds we should have sound bodies and that is why Nations the world over attach so much importance to body building and Physical Culture”.
