News Blog, July 15, 2014

Due to our sectarian society, we care for no one but who resides within our community, culture or even our house. We have become so fearful and reticent of extending our hands to outsiders that we have indoctrinated our children to follow in our footsteps. We need to stop this from happening and it needs to stop right now.

Let us unite as brothers and sisters in order to work for the common good for each other. Let us unite in securing education for all – to make literacy available for us all! We need to grow past barriers and allow our children to grow up knowing how to read, write and learn all they can about themselves and the world. Let us not forget our forefathers who forged a strong and thriving nation. Let us make them proud of how we have kept Quaid-e-Azam’s promise of a “think 100 times before you make a decision, but once that decision is taken, stand by it as one man”. As a single nation we can bring education to every single Pakistani. This is a critical time for the country of Pakistan. Let us not forsake her.
