Introducing students to Jinnah’s liberal values

Karachi

 
May 28, 2015

Karachi
The Society for Advancement of Health, Education and Environment (SAHEE) on Wednesday organised the screening of the 1998 biopic, Jinnah, at various cinemas across the city for students aged 12-16.
The project arranged with a view to sensitise students with respect to Jinnah’s values of modernity and tolerance as well as the socio-political realities which led to the inevitable 1947 partition, was attended by over 800 students from both the private and public sectors, on the first day of the four-day event.
Following the screening students were engaged in a small but lively discussion with speakers, of backgrounds as diverse as literature, journalism and education, regarding their perspective of the historical events which culminated in the inception of Pakistan; a question and answers session was also held.
The film has recently been revived by Dehalvi Productions, and highlights the tolerant and all-inclusive society which the Quaid-e-Azam envisaged.
SAHEE , a local NGO, has been actively working in the field of social betterment since 1996 on several social issues such as education, drug awareness, corrections and values and ethics.
