Students to soldiers by Madeeha Ansari

Since Dec 16 last year, it has become heartbreakingly evident that no space has remained sacred. Schools, mosques and churches, all have been violated and smeared with blood. While authorities are under pressure to demonstrate that security measures are being installed, particularly in educational institutions, it is important that these demonstrations reinforce — rather than undermine — a feeling of safety for children.

Building a tolerant Pakistan by bakhtawar bilal soofi

As a result, we have a compartmentalized educational system where these three parallel systems are completely insulated from one another. Such a setup provides no opportunity for the cross-fertilisation of ideas. At the end of the educational process, so the argument goes, each system, which caters to a distinct social class, produces different individuals with different values and a completely different set of thinking.

Six crore Pakistanis today are utterly illiterate. They cannot read a calendar, railway time-table or an airport display of arrivals and departures.

Sir: Education is the basic right of every child and a very important aspect for progress of any nation.
