There are only a few events in Lahore that can be said to have taken years to pull off, 6 to be exact, and JTMUN is on the top of that list. It goes without saying that it took as much blood, sweat, tears, some very colorful vocabulary, sleepless nights and back-breaking days as any other event of this magnitude takes, but what sets JTMUN apart is the years of waiting, longing, and the intense pressure that comes with everything JT-esque. But we can assure you, same as last year, it will be worth the wait. Saif Ali Sukhera, the first ever Secretary General of JTMUN set an unbelievably high bar last year, but we assure you, the platform is set for us to burst through that barrier and bring to you the best conference you have ever been to!
"I myself don't know how the first JTMUN happened, but it did and I'll always feel it"
"For us, JTMUN was more than just an event. It was the result of hardwork, dedication and some people who just would not give up."
"JTMUN: A 7 year old baby."
"JTMUN was more of an answer to 7 year's worth of questions, rather than an event"
"Where I failed, the next generation delivered."
Sir Zain was my mentor;
I’m sure you’ve heard of him,
He wasn't a fan of flattery;
He believed research was the key.
Hear ye his decree;
Note it down you may;
These three rules he told,
Will help you seize the day
Guard your stances;
Like virgins their modesty;
Watch out for USA ‘its Big,
But only on Diplomacy
Give me solutions;
Not a circular debate,
No Ad Hominem arguments;
Nor Blame-Games of Hate.
This last one if followed,
Assures a winning streak;
To win ‘Best Delegate’;
Get up, Man, and speak!
Zain Haider was a star,
This is in his loving memory;
I want him to stay in our hearts forever;
This is me continuing his legacy.
I'm the MUN president of LGS Johar Town and I'll be serving as the chair of UNSC at JTMUN 16. I have been involved with the MUN circuit for around 4 years now and have won a number of awards. I'm particularly excited for UNSC this year because the level of debate is going to be exceptionally high and the topic will require delegates to find creative but viable solutions to the issue at hand.My ACDs, Huzaifa Aslam (the O level MUN representative) and Rukhshan Haroon will be around to assist me.
As for me, I love horse riding, cricket, going to the gym and travelling. Arctic Monkeys, Mumford and Sons, the Kooks, the Black Keys, The Jungle Giants and Noori are some of my favourite bands. Game of Thrones is my favourite TV show, and I'll make sure we find time to discuss our predictions for the upcoming season 7.
See you all in September!
My name is Raza Aziz and I am currently in my final year of A levels at LGS JT. It has been 4 years since I spoke at my first Model UN conference and the only thing I remember is that it wasn’t easy. Then again, how could it have been? I was a young and naïve boy who had entered the gates of Aitchison College, knowing only that something related to the United Nations was going on. Since then, it has been an amazing journey and if it were not for those sessions held by Zain Haider, I might have not gone to any other MUN.
As the post suggests, I’ll be chairing DISEC this year. Unlike most people, I’m not a big fan of entertainment sessions; however, I assure you, this committee won’t be as boring as you might think. As much as I appreciate a good speaking style, I certainly will not be giving out points to rhetoric-laced speeches only. So make sure you are well-acquainted with the topic. Now, a bit about myself: I love playing cricket, I am a big fan of the British film industry and Britain in general (for some odd reason) and I love mathematics. I might be the only person who feels good after attempting differentiation questions. However, that does not necessarily mean that I am very good at it. I’m not. Anyway, best of luck.
See you all this September! If you have any questions or queries regarding the committee, the topics or the rules of procedure feel free to contact me on email!
As you might know, I will be chairing the International Atomic Energy Agency at this year's JTMUN. I have been in the MUN circuit for four years now, and it goes without saying that MUNs have taught me a lot- diplomacy, argumentation and international relations, to name some. I have won accolades at quite a few MUNs, both local and international, including HMUN, so rest assured- you are in safe hands.
A little about myself- I love horse-riding and game of thrones. Brownie points for anyone who shares my love for Coldplay.
A final word of advice- come well-prepared.My dais and I will be looking for some good debate. Keep your mind on the run always. Don't let others dominate you and employ good rhetoric (yes, I love rhetoric). However, keep close to logic. See you all this September.
As the page lucidly indicates, my name is Haider Khan and I have the distinct honour of serving as the committee director at this year’s simulation of the UNHRC at JTMUN’16. I am currently in my first year of A levels at LGS JT and have been part of the MUN circuit for two years now. As is the duty of every chair, I assure each and every delegate that they are in capable hands as I have won multiple awards(purposefully not writing accolades as it is the cliché of the 21st century) albeit the highlight of MUN career is wining the coveted best delegate award at LUMUNXII. I have also served as both, an ACD and a do-chair at various MUNs.
My expectations for the committee are very straight forward: engaging debate, comprehensive frameworks and shrewd diplomacy. However, for me, a committee is only as good as it's entertainment sessions hence this will be the most entertaining committee at JTMUN this year. The very best of luck to all the delegates participating and please feel free to contact me if you have any problems at all with the topic area(s) or with the committee in general.
Hoping to see you this fall,
Delegates, my name is Sultan Ahmad and I am going to be chairing PNA for this year's edition of JTMUN. I started my MUN career from the host team of our very own JTMUN and from there, I developed an extreme liking for these types of circulars. I have specialized in PNA, winning numerous 'Best Delegate' and 'Outstanding Diplomacy' awards. Over the course of one year, I took part in many MUN’s including 55MUN, LUMUN, CSMUN and gained a lot of first-hand experience from various chairs.
Other than that, I will be starting my A Levels this year at LGS JT. I have been an active member of the Youth General Assembly (YGA) and partook in community service throughout the summer. I am also a huge fan of both cricket and Sufi music; so you should know what to aim for if you want those brownie points.
It goes without saying that I would like the delegates to research well and be well-prepared for the topic agendas. I want a high level of debate and of course, the best entertainment sessions. With all that said, happy researching and best of luck! If you have any queries at all, please feel free to message me, or my ACDs (Daniyal Kamal and Omair Rashid) on Facebook.
My name is Shaheryar Ahmed and I will be chairing SPECPOL for this year's edition of JTMUN. I will make this as short as possible. I am in the second year of my A Levels. I have been involved in the MUN and debate's circuit for the better part of four years. During this time, I have attended quite a lot of MUNs and have accumulated my fair share of awards, so you don't need to worry about the capability of the dias.
I have chaired various MUNs, and believe me when I say, in my committee, pointless shouting will not get you anything. Smart and logical points, along with astute diplomacy will get you the award. I expect all of you to be well prepared because your bluffs might work elsewhere, but I assure you, they won't bid will for you here.
I would insert the cliched statement about having the best entertainment session, but we all know that never happens, So I'll just leave it at that. Happy researching and good luck.
My name is Ammar Shahid and I will be chairing this year's crisis cabinet. I absolutely love crisis cabinets, not only because they require no cosmetic paper work and let you get straight to the point, but because they truly can test your ability to think on your feet.
Plenty of people choose to attend crisis cabinets because they believe they can get through the sessions without doing any research. Unfortunately that will not be true for this cabinet. Atif, Ibrahim, Sarim and I have designed the committee specifically to test delegates’ reactions in terms of knowledge, understanding, confidence, strategy and diplomacy. Since this committee will be quite different to other MUNs you may have experienced, we expect you to bring something different to the table. It is not going to be about the rhetoric laden speeches or the below the belt shots you may be used to hearing about at MUNs. The situations that you will face will have multiple aspects to them so we expect in-depth and intelligent responses.
This will be a high pressure committee, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun through the (hopefully) multitudinous entertainment sessions and genuinely impassioned debate we'll have. Also, brownie points for anything ACDC related.
We look forward to seeing you next month. If you need to ask anything, please feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best of Luck!
