LAHORE - Former Federal Minister and eminent Muslim League leader Khan Ghulam Dastagir Khan has said that illiteracy is the core point of country's dilemma, as we could not create consensus on uniform educational system even after 60 years of independence. He was addressing young scholars on the 22th day of Nazriati Summer School on Friday at Aiwan-e-Karkunan-e-Tehrik-e-Pakistan held under the aegis of the Nazaria Pakistan Trust (NPT). Distinguished intellectual and NPT coordinator Mian Aziz-ul-Haq Qureshi also attended the occasion. Ghulam Dastagir advised the students, "whatever profession you adopt in future, you should give priority to two-nation theory while serving the nation as this notion would keep you in the right direction". He said the Holy Quran repeatedly ordained on human beings to think before action but we ignored this advice and hence suffered a lot. He prayed for long life and sound health of NPT Chairman Majid Nizami. He advised teachers of Nazriati Summer School to create feelings of enthusiasm, fervour and passion among the students so that they could counter the challenges with courage in future. While inspecting various scientific models exhibited in science fair by students of Nazriati Summer School, Dastagir appreciated the young scholars' efforts and said that they should work hard and concentrate on the assignments so that they could also bring laurels to Pakistan like Dr AQ Khan. Mian Azizul Haq Qureshi said we are Muslims and then Pakistanis. As being Muslims, we created a sovereign state so that we could lead our lives according to the teachings of Islam. Pakistan is a gift of Almighty Allah because it came into being on the night between August 14 and 15, 1947, and according to Hijra calendar that falls on 27 Ramazan-ul-Mubarik meant Juma tul Widaa, which is considered to be the most sacred day in Islamic almanac year. He said this country, in fact, was exact replica of state of Madina tul Munawwar. He said there was no room for slavery in Islam. That is why Muslims could not be slave forever. He said according to Islam liberating a slave was a significant virtue and Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah liberated hundreds of thousands Muslims from the slavery of Hindus and British. He said only 7 out of 192 countries of the world were atomic powers and Pakistan was one of them, which was a matter of pride for us, he added.
