Education is the essential foundation stone for all development and countries around the globe have embraced this option in order to develop themselves. That's why higher education and research in learning is thought to be the key of all processes in the western society. Education is also the essential difference between the 1st world and the 3rd world countries like Pakistan where there is little respect for quality education. In my opinion, the greatest need of Pakistani society today is quality education imparted at all tiers of the society. I am happy to note that even in these times of uncertainty, there are many sincere political figures in our country committed to education. If asked to quote a name, I would say Raja Mohammad Anwar, the Chairman Punjab Education Foundation, is one. I believe that we need genuine people like Abdul Sattar Edhi, in the field of education as well. -MOHAMMAD AHMAD, Lahore, March 6
