Ashaab e Tabl o Alam aur Kitab aur Qalam
It discusses the pathetic state of education in Pakistan and discovers that education has been declared a Human Right, and was made compulsory, only recently after 63 years of establishment of Pakistan.
It also advises that due to huge gap between the rich and privilege, modern education is essentially available to citizens in urban areas and children of feudals, army officers, and the privileged few.
It informs that Pakistan only spends about 2.4 percent of its GNP on education, and that huge resources are committed to Pakistan’s military infrastructure.
It questions as to why Pakistan’s media, intelligentsia, writers, and activists do not raise their united voice to change this situation.
