Demise of the bilingual intellectual by Tahir Kamran

Dr Rohit De is a young and credible historian. Trained at Princeton University, he is currently teaching at Yale University. Now that his wife is pursuing her PhD at the Cambridge University, he divides his time between Yale and Cambridge.

In one of our discussions on Pakistan’s history and politics came up the issue of language and its role in determining the intellectual trajectory of any nation/community. Rohit’s concern about the decline in the bilingual intellectual tradition in India drew my attention to the state of uni-lingualism that has steadily crept in Pakistan’s intellectual tradition over the last few decades. The gradual demise of bi-lingualism besets both countries but the situation obtaining in Pakistan is somewhat different.

The subject of official textbooks has regularly been tweaked and tinkered with by a number of players for the promotion of religious bigotry and Indo-phobia.

 Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar — a man who chose the pen above the sword by Aziz Fatima

“Life will begin again when the tyrant has been vanquished It will be our beginning when you have reached your limits”

This couplet was written by Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar, my grandfather. It could have been written today as we unite and rise up against the excesses that reached another kind of inteha in the brutal massacre of innocents of Peshawar’s Army Public School.

When leaders get confused

It has taken them more days than the duration of our September 1965 war with India to now decide to amend the constitution to provide for trial of terror suspects by military courts. This is manifestly a deviation from constitutional and democratic principles that are passionately prescribed for the survival of Pakistan. Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar was reported to have said that 90 percent of madressahs have no link with terrorism. He obviously meant to allay fears that religious schools were a breeding ground for militancy.

Countering extremism through the classroom

Over the last few decades, Pakistan has experienced many crises, and most of these have been associated with a rise in extremism and militancy. A culture of violence has become pervasive, to the extent that it undermines law and order, social cohesion and the government’s authority. The root causes of extremism are many and as a nation we have never tried to address any of them. The foremost among them is education and here it should be evident to all of us that we have never tried to address the issue of extremism in our school curriculum

About these madaris

Madrassah reforms were never going to sit well with the people running, and patronising, religious seminaries. Which is why the JUI-S, JUI-F reactions – so aptly summed up in Qari Hanif Jalandhari’s warnings of western conspiracy – were expected. And the government’s response to this expected reaction, or the lack of one, will tell how thorough its new approach really is.  One would expect, especially after Peshawar, that the laid-back approach would finally be shed, and the sternest measures would be taken to identify and apprehend all fountainheads of terror, be they academic or militant.

NTS fee one thousand rupees is injustice with a youth of Baluchistan

It is not feasible to follow this expensive system. Jobs opportunities should be according to the financial position of the unemployed youth of Baluchistan. Baluchistan is a backward province of Pakistan comparatively, but usually NTS fee is in the range of one hundred rupees throughout Pakistan. Then; being a backwardness province of Pakistan it should be given a less amount of fee rather than other provinces. It is quite clear that there is a high rate of unemployment in Baluchistan, so how can it be a possible that the whole desirable youth will manage this thick amount of NTS fee. My suggestion to NTS is that kindly match your fee with the economic condition of Baluchistan.
