The Name

Hazrat Bari Imam sarkar

HBS stands for ‘Hazrat Bari Imam Sarkar’, the patron saint of Islamabad and Potohar region.

Shah Abdul Latif Kazmi R.A., or ‘Hazrat Bari Imam Sarkar’ as he is popularly known, was a great sufi saint of 17th Century AD. It was the result of his efforts that Islam spread in this region. He has a huge following in the sub-continent. Even after passing of four hundred years, his message of love for humanity and its welfare resonates deeply with people everywhere. His teachings transcend geographical and religious boundaries and attract millions of pilgrims from all over the world to his shrine.

The name reflects the lifelong devotion and attachment of the Trustees of HBS Trust (the parent organization of HBS Medical & Dental College) to Ghous Pak and Sufia-e-Karam in general and Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Kazmi R.A. in particular.

As per orders of the government, it is decided that HBS Medical and Dental college will remain closed for all students (including hospital rotations) till 5th April 2020 with immediate effect. However, faculty and the rest of the staff will continue as before. The online teaching schedule shall be circulated soon. Hostels should be vacated as soon as possible to avoid the risk of spread. All supplementary exams are postponed till the 5th of April and a new date sheet shall be issued by the university. All concerned are directed to stay in touch with the management for any new development and act accordingly.

This has been notified officially.
