The importance of education in reformation and development of any society cannot be underestimated. It is for this reason that Islam puts great stress on education and acquiring knowledge. The first word revealed in Holy Quran is lqra which means read Proper education and especially at the primary level can really turn out to be a blessing for a country as in the case of FATA, where militancy rate has decreased owing to schools and education centres opened by the government and the army. It is essential that we win the hearts and minds of the people, which is impossible unless there are schools and colleges. HASEEB ALI, Lahore, February 09.
