On the auspicious occasion of Eid Milaad-ul-Nabi on the 12th of Rabi-ul- Awwal (29 Sep 2023), all ranks of MCSB gathered in College Mosque for the fajar prayer. Recitation of the Quran was also carried out after the prayer. In the evening, Inter-House Naat and Qiraat Competitions for the academic year 2023-24 were arranged in Moeed Hall. This beautifully arranged event brought cadets together from four senior houses namely Haider House, Sher Shah House, Jinnah House, Liaqat House and a junior house, Iqbal House.
