The true spirit of seeking knowledge, from cradle to grave, is being practiced by every nation but not the Muslims. Here, I will quote only one example of an educational institution in UK, called Eton. Someone has rightly commented that Eton is the school that runs Britain as this school is the breeding ground for UK’s leadership. The power of an educational institution can be more than one can count. An old Etonian phrase holds great truth that Eton is a very British formula for dominance. So far 19 students from Eton have risen to high position of British as Prime Ministers. We have to re-examine our belief of the power of education, knowledge at national level. I have best wishes for every school going child, who opts to seek knowledge in these moments of unprecedented terror, fear and panic.
