Education Reforms

انسانی جدوجہد کو ہے یہی اولین مقصود
کہ فطرت کی قوتوں کو کرنا ہے اسے مسخر
پھر اقدارِ خداوندی کے مطابق ہوگی نشوونما
جو نوعِ انساں کی منفعت کیلئے صر ف ہو اگر

Quality Education is a basic foundation for an Advance & Civilized Society. Education must teach our youth how to respect our Seniors, skill development how to earn honest livings, how to serve our community, how to survive the hardships of life in future and how the Zionist are misusing Technologies and Media as their tools against Islam etc.. Our Religion Islam also have emphasized on attaining knowledge for men and women. I would like to suggest the following educational reforms

Change the Teaching Methods:

Mostly we think and dream in our mother tongue like Urdu, Punjabi or Pushto etc. but not in a secondary languages that we learn at schools e.g. English, Persian or Arabic etc. .

Why? A mother who might be an illiterate, she starts teaching her child at very minor age when child has almost Zero IQ level. She does not use any Books to Teach and does not use copies for any homework. Neither she uses a white/black board for teaching nor she conduct a class like a teacher in classroom but she stood the Best Teacher of Your Life!

Re-Think and adopt teaching methods like a mother.

Get Rid of a Foreign Language
In the World’s last 5000 Years history there is not a single Nation which adopted a foreign language to have achieved the progress. It has been the universal truth that you can learn in somebody’s language but you cannot be creative in somebody else language. Even now a days all the progressive countries like Denmark, Ireland, Sweden, Japan, China, Italy, Germany etc. , uses their own native language for their higher education than why not in Pakistan we shall use Urdu instead of English.

Character Building should be the main focus of our Education. A Doctor, Engineer or MBA Degree is of no use if a person has not learned Humanity.

Our Current Education System is teaching our children the Stories of Mr, Chips and Cinderella, who lied to her Mom and run away from home, but does not like to spread the story of Abdul Qader Jilani (RA), who gave his hidden sum to robbers and said my mom taught me to never tell a lie. We must teach our young generation Serat-ul-Nabi (PBUH). We have to change our syllabus and replace all European stories with Islamic Legend’s real stories.

All Teachers shall be highly qualified and well trained on Teaching Skills, and there shall be one day per week Training Session for all teachers to upgrade their skills. All Teachers shall be given a VIP status in our society and top priority all government offices.

خارجی کائنات ہو    یاکہ انساں کی داخلی دنیا
علم وجستجوسے ہی ہو ں مستور حقاءْق بے نقاب
نشترِ تحقیق تیز کراپنا کہ کرنا ہے تجھے تسخیرِفطرت
کامل غوروفکر سے ہی انساں کہلائے ا ولی الالباب
