    IS the 100 rupees just for entry or can they be redeemed for anything?
    Its a good idea but science is already very backwards in our country and charging wont encourage it :)

    Rs100 is insignificant when u take into account those distinguished speakers

    in a city where people can easily pay Rs3000+ to attend Bryan Adam’s concert and tickets get sold out, Rs 100 is like being charged nothing at all..

    hehehe…. It means Bryan Adam is 30 times more popular than a local Ph.D. from M.I.T.

    One more, few years ago, a top Pakistani actress was asked this question in a talk show that if she knew Dr. A.Q. Khan or not, and her answer was NO. May be she didnt know him because he was not her personal physician or dentist.. LOL..

    This opportunity to hear Dr Hoodbhoy in person must not be missed by any thinking person in Karachi. His book “Islam and Science” is an eye-opener for the nation fed on the myths of past glory of Muslim science. Below reviews will give you a glimpse.
