April 21, 2016

Islamabad: Minister of State for Education and Professional Training Muhammad Balighur Rehman attended the 4th Annual Day organised by Al Huda International School at Pak-China Friendship Centre here on Wednesday.

He congratulated the head of Al Huda International, Dr. Farhat Hashmi, and her team for arranging the event so beautifully. He said that these children are our national asset so we should invest best of our resources on them to make them better educated human beings. He said that education and research both are necessary in our religion. So we should not just rely on the syllabus but we should encourage our children to research and explore different subjects, fields and ideas.

The minister of state said that we are trying to make ‘Quranic’ education compulsory in all public schools after consulting all the provinces through the platform of IPEMC (Inter Provincial Education Ministers’ Conference). Nazra Quran will be taught from class 1 to class 5th and proper ‘Quranic’ education with translation will be taught to the students of class 6th to class 10th, he said.

He also talked about the SDGs, decrease in dropout rate and increase in education budget etc on the occasion. He added that education scenario is improving in Pakistan and we all need to work together to make it even better. He admired the role played by the private schools in educating the children of Pakistan.
