LAHORE – NPT Vice Chairman Prof Dr Rafique Ahmad has said that the teachers should train the students in a manner that they can make the country developed and powerful according to its ideological basis.

He said the country had enormous natural resources and the need was to utilise these minerals.

He said this while addressing an ‘Ideological Training Workshop’ at Aiwan-e-Karkunan Tehrik-e-Pakistan on Tuesday. Nazaria Pakistan Trust and Punjab Education Department jointly organised the workshop for the head teachers of various schools of District Lahore, Sheikhupura and Gujranwala.

Dr Rafique said only Islam was the base of the creation of Pakistan. He said the people who termed Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah as secular were misled.

He said the enemies of Pakistan were falsely propagating about its creation. “Despite the present circumstances, the youth must not be worried and the teachers must tell them that the future of the country is bright”.

He urged upon the teachers to prepare a model curriculum of Pakistan Studies and presented it to the government so that this curriculum could be introduced in educational institutions. He informed them that NPT was also making efforts for the said purpose.

CONTEST:  The Nazaria-i-PakistanTrust conducted a Kalam-e-Iqbal recitation contest at the Pakistan Movement Workers’ Trust. Lahore College for Women University Mehak Azam stood first, while Government Samanabad College Mashal Habib and Government College for Women Baghbanpura Zeenat Iqbal got second and third positions respectively. While among boys, Government College of Science Ali Riaz remained first, Punjab College Ali Baksh stood second and Dial Singh College’s Muhammad Muqaddas got third position in the contest.

Nazaria-i-PakistanTrust in collaboration with the Pakistan Movement Workers’ Trust will organize a speech contest on Wednesday (today) among school students regarding 135th birth anniversary of Allama Iqbal.
