Why Pakistan always seems prone (at knee level) before United States of America (US) despite their errors whereas India gets US prostrated before them in case of non-adherence of standing rules and regulation, a general perception among the masses.

It refers the recent arrest of Indian deputy consul-general Devyani Khobragade in New York on Dec 17th 2013 over visa fraud allegations.

As soon as the news busted in media or known to the Indian ministry of foreign affairs, Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid immediately retaliated & took revenge without spoiling even a single minute, he ordered the concerned departments;
 
o
 
  • To remove the barricades planted around US Embassy in New Delhi that’s meant to protect and secure the US personnel and its staff.
ü  Straight away caterpillar rushed to the US embassy in New Delhi for removing the barriers on the street and road approaching to the embassy.

ü  Issued instruction to Ministry of External affairs to impose ban on liquor import, notifying concerned departments at airport & shipping ports to suspend liquor supply for US embassy in New Delhi with immediate effect.

ü  Immediately withdrawal of internal and external security forces from the embassy deployed there.

ü  Collecting back ID cards issued to US employees working in the embassy in New Delhi enabling them to travel & visit at airports in the country & at other places, a special treatment for personnel of US embassy.

ü  And lodged a serious anger with US embassy in New Delhi to apologize for the humiliation that’s US did with their Indian deputy counselor deputed in New York.
"We have put in motion what we believe would be effective way of addressing the issue that need to be taken to protect her dignity,” the disgusted Indian Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid told reporters in New Delhi.

If it had been happened in Pakistan, our Govt. would never have prompted such reprisal as India has taken, showing their strong anger over the arrest of her deputy Consul-general in New York over visa fraud allegations said by a senior citizen of Pakistan.

Why we are so weak and helpless – where is our self-esteemed- Don’t we have courage and strength to say ‘NO’ as India says – why always are humble, imploring & reluctant – Of course it’s a matter of an independent state and its sovereignty to show our anger and retaliation as our neighbor has been doing - why don’t we?

However US Secretary of State John Kerry apologized to India over the arrest of deputy consul-general Devyani Khobragade in New York.
In Rawin Davis case who killed (in open day light) four Pakistanis but what we did? We received a call from US to release him during Pakistan people party (PPP) govt. & how he was emancipated.

The strategy was evolved to forward the case in sharia court instead to move through normal civil court trial, where proceeding started and ended in reconciliation with deceased family paying prescribed amount determined in Islamic principal and Rawin Devis was sent back, the killer moved US with safe and sound and the people of the country were aghast looking the mechanism govt. of Pakistan arranged.  

Utmost we consider to keep Washington lords happy instead to ask them to honor country’s policy and procedure & as a nation we should be firm and uncompromised while dealing at diplomatic level giving preference to maintain political & territorial integrity and the law associated with it, said by academician.

And what we have done to Aafia Siddiqui - she has been awarded by US court to jail her eighty six years - why don’t we initiate request with US Foreign office to release her if we are really serious and intend to bring Aafia back in (her home town) Pakistan, asked by one of the correspondent with premier Nawaz Shareef during his visit in Karachi who assured & convinced to handle it very soon.
The other action of Indian govt. refers the report appeared on Oct 18th 2013 in a foreign newspaper that India arrested US ship crew carrying weapons who failed to produce documents authorizing them to carry arms & ammunition on the ship, police in a southern Indian port city arrested the crew on Oct 12th 2013.

On board there were 8 crew and 25 security guards they had been booked for illegal possession of weapons and ammunition entering India’s territorial waters without permission, the police said.

The ship’s captain told investigators that the company provides armed escorts to merchant vessels travelling in pirate-infested waters in the Indian Ocean.

Police seized 35 automatic weapons and nearly 5,700 rounds of ammunition from the security guards on the ship, the police said.

The ship is owned by Virginia-based Security Company AdvanFort & has been registered in Sierra Leone, the ship was detained on October 12, report said.

The US Embassy in New Delhi said it had no comment on the matter.

In one of the case, Italian mariner equipped with arms that’s was a merchant ship, they shoot two Indian fishermen getting impression of pirates. The two Italians are facing trial in India for the deaths of Indian fishermen.


US role with Pakistan - NATO attacked in Pakistan on Nov 26th 2011 known as the Salala incident or Salala attack occurred when US led NATO forces engaged
Pakistani security forces at two Pakistani military check posts along the Afghanistan Pakistan border.

Two NATO Apache helicopters, AC 130 Gunship and two F-15E Eagle fighter jets entered in Pakistani border area of Salala in the Baizai subdivision of Mohmand
Agency, FATA at 2 a.m. and fired at two borders patrol check-posts, killing 24 Pakistani soldiers and wounded 13.

This attack impacted adversely, deteriorating relations between Pakistan and the US, people of the country reacted with protests all over the country and the government took measures effecting US exit strategy from Afghanistan including the evacuation of Shamshi air-field and closure of the NATO supply line. 

The incident sparked outrage and controversy in Pakistan termed the attack an "unprovoked and indiscriminate firing, an "irresponsible act," and a "stark violation" of its sovereignty.

The military establishment viewed NATO's attacks on the army check posts as intentional, pre-planned and premeditated slamming NATO's version of events as "lame excuses".

Pakistan rejected claims of any firing having emanated from its side as a prelude to the encounter, saying that the soldiers who were manning the post were asleep and resting when NATO launched the assault at night.

In late March 2012, US military official stated that they would have to use routes through the Northern Distribution Network (NDN) for supplies to Afghanistan if Pakistan refused to reopen its supply lines.

However, due to costlier transportation US intended to go back with the earlier routes being cheaper & convenient and agreed to have negotiation with Pakistan to restore its earlier supply line.

After reviewing United States-Pakistan relations and outlining what was needed to repair bilateral relations, Pakistani parliament turned the decision of reopening the NATO supply lines over to the government in April 2012.

The Pakistani government was reluctant to reopen the lines, and postponed its decision until the United States responded positively to Pakistani demands outlined in the parliamentary recommendations as a US apology for the November 2011 incident, the bringing of those involved in the strike to justice, and a stop to US drone airstrikes.

Talks between Pakistan and US failed in April 2012 after Pakistan could not get an unconditional apology from the US for the November 2011 incident. Pakistani officials said they cannot open the NATO supply routes in Afghanistan without a US apology.

United Nation & Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) - The Secretary General of OIC Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu condemned the NATO attacks and gave his condolences to the relatives of the dead soldiers. Ihsanoglu said the attacks were a "serious violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and are totally unacceptable" and expressed solidarity with Pakistan.
European Union - Catherine Ashton offered her condolences for the deaths and said: "We underline the EU's commitment to continue its engagement with Pakistan in pursuit of the shared goals of promoting peace, security and prosperity. Pakistan is a vital partner in the region and has an essential role to play in the resolution of the Afghan conflict.

The White House released a statement in which it said that senior American officials had expressed their condolences to Pakistan and that the officials expressed "our desire to work together to determine what took place, and our commitment to the US-Pakistan partnership which advances our shared interests, including fighting terrorism in the region".

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta spoke to their Pakistani counterparts to give their "deepest condolences" in a joint statement and also supported a NATO investigation. The commander of the International Security Assistance Force is "personally paying the highest attention" to the matter.

The Obama Administration pledged cooperation with Pakistan and ordered a full investigation and inquiry to be conducted into the attack.

President Obama personally phoned President Asif Ali Zardari to express his sorrow over the deaths of the soldiers and according to a press release, "made it clear that this regrettable incident was not a deliberate attack on Pakistan and reiterated the United States’ strong commitment to a full investigation." while stopping short of offering a formal apology.

So it is vivid and has been proved that US did not apologize formally with Pakistan govt. after attack at two check posts killing 24 soldiers 13 wounded.

As per Express Tribune, one scribe from India said the attack had elicited various reactions in India with some vocal sections who saw Islamabad in "the prism of prejudice and paranoia" expressing glee and delight at the discomfort and supposed humiliation of their arch-rival western neighbor. He opinionated that "such sick thought has many takers in this healthy democracy which prides itself as the voice of the third world countries".

As per Indian Muslim Observer titled “NATO terrorism in Pakistan" said that Pakistan's leadership was "interested mainly in promoting US imperialist goals and western capitalist interests" rather than protecting the interests of its people.

SALARIES & PERK given to govt. executives should immediately be ceased as soon as they retire & leave their office & position – a general request from civil society.

Pakistan is a developing country and we cannot afford the burden of extra ordinary expenses on its National treasury which is already being stuffed with the borrowed amount from multiple lending agencies.

We have feeble economy which is pampered by loaned amount, we do maintain our foreign exchange reserve when we pay off earlier debt to IMF for the sake of another loan enabling the country to swell it at a reasonable strength.

In such a rattling situation where status of our foreign exchange reserve is alarming and has the capability hardly to meet country expenses for 1-2 months or if we pay off the import bills of two months (simultaneously) it will go empty.

The recently retired Chief Justice of Supreme Court Mr. Iftikahr Mohammad Chaudhary asking with his successor to provide him Protocol with Bullet proof car, a shiny and long Black Mercedes hoisting flag in its two sides, escorting him with convoy of Security personnel, a beam of cars and four wheelers throwing blue and green lights around, running abreast with Ex-CJ car when he was holding the position of Chief Justice of Supreme court. Keeping the traffic at standstill while he was coming out from home and proceeding either for his office or personal business.  

The Ex CJ Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhary intends to have the same facility continue that’s why he has requested his successor to have it continued, giving a justification that he has a threat, the letter he sent to new Chief Justice Mr. Tassaduq Hussain Jillani this morning.   

Mr. Tassaduq Jillani however has forwarded Ex-CJ request to the Ministry of interior asking to look into it.

We are very smart and try to convince the authority who is in the govt. very astutely said by a debater at TV channels where the discussion were continue about Ex-CJ entitlement after leaving the office.

Not only Ex-CJ we have instances where the going MNAs/ MPAs & Senators also had requested and even they had passed the bills in the last hours of the assembly at federal and provincial level when the assemblies were going to dissolve and ready for General Election on May 11th 21013.

During the last leg of PPP, multiple bills had been passed/ approved in the assemblies at federal and provincial level among them some bills were to keep the 'PERKs' continued being availed by MNAs/ MPAs after leaving the assembly. The Bills were saying that all Ex-MNAs/ Ex MPAs & Ex Senators who were holding their offices during 2008-2013 their 'PERKs' will remain continue and unchanged.

The Bill further stated that they would keep the Bullet proof car, Protocol as they were getting while were in office, Security personnel around the bungalows, Security guards and contingent of police while they moved from here to there and vice versa, Access to VVIP lounge at airport, reduced rate of traveling tickets for self, spouse and children etc. SPA and massage center access on discounted rate or free of cost as were continued while in office, 1st. class and Business class tickets of airplane while travelled, keeping Mali, Cook & House maids & other facilities as were continued during their PPP tenure would be unchanged after 2013 onward though they were not in office, said the bill.

Noticing the intensity as the last resort of corruption PPP sought, then Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhary had asked the assembly to withdraw it as they were no more in the office to keep the 'PERKs" continue.

The nation however does not know precisely that what still continuing to those retiree? I believe it should public and be debated so that irregularity if continued by Ex MNAs/ Ex MPA & Ex-Senators should be into the knowledge of the people.
It is our money we are paying taxes and from national wallet somebody enjoying though they are not entitled to have it more. Said by a senior banker discussing in public with media anchor. As a general perception after retirement the PERK does not go continue either it is terminated or withdrawn.

I also refer here ‘exception’ being continued – Is it a life time “PERK or WAIVE” which guarantees the former MNAs/ MPAs & Senators to do everything - Misuse the govt. authority and budget - Misappropriate national account - Avail loans from the Banks in the country and don’t pay but get it written off - Plunder national wealth and transfer in overseas personal account - Abuse the authority and go into ecstasies.
Don’t pay taxes, don’t pay utility bills, don’t pay property & industry tax, encroach the land wherever you want, use Electricity, use Gas and use Telephone & don’t pay the bill because these are yours and in legacy you have got it? Said by one political analyst who strongly criticized on Ex-Premier Syed Yousef Raza Gilliani.

A report provoked a furious reaction from Ex-premier Yousef Raza Gillani who was summoned by NAB to appear in the court for some clarification.

But Ex-premier shouted among journalist that I will see how anyone can touch me, I have exception - I have been exempted - I see who arrest me – if I am arrested – Nawaz Sharif (current premier) also will go - He openly challenged the authority that why me only – why not Ex-president Asif Ali Zardari why me only repeated Ex-premier Yousef Raza Gillani and he was yelling.

What a ridiculous? - Why these Exemption & Immunity for which these politicians have been claiming?

Does it not give them a freehand to do what seems them right, play with the country, its people, rules and regulation, undermine the state and its sovereignty, take loan and loan and make the country confined with heavy indebtedness so that generation to generation this curse go continue and never close.

Does immunity or exception give them a clean chit to abuse the authority and paralyze the country, asked analyst? 
If so why Supreme Court does not repeal this 'PERKs' with immediate effect in the interest of the country so that no one can disloyal, dishonest and insincere & honor court instruction & order of govt. related institutions.

How the country can establish accountability if the politicians say that nobody can touch us and we have immunity or have been exempted. Open call in public like a vandal & hooligan who challenges - Is there anybody who can fight with me?

So what’s next if the law has given them exemption & judiciary seems silent spectator so why don’t supreme court abolish it & make them lawful asking to abide by instead to cheer with the exemption buzz.

In a democratic set up – do we have such facility in European states where economic operating system running on democracy pattern - Do they have such immunity or claim of exception as we do?

Don't they have retired MNAs/ MPAs & Chief Justice - Are they availing the same  'PERKs' as were admissible them during their office tenure and asking to have it continued even after leaving the office?

In India Lalo Parsad a politician, he was tried after 10 years and proved guilty for misappropriating animal feeds with millions of amount, he is in jail now.

We have example in European states where multiple politicians had been dragged into the court and was executed for misappropriating national funds. Corruption is everywhere but law also chase them and execute to avoid of its grooming and we as an independent state should also ensure to enforce.

We will have to change the culture and will enforce the law in letter and spirit, impartiality and unbiased, law is meant for all, no exemption or immunity for politicians and a trap for a normal citizen of Pakistan

That’s will be double standard if we don’t change the policy, ignorance of law has no excuse, everyone into the eyes of law are the same and have equal treatment & opportunity said by an Economist.

The PERK needs to rewrite if the Ex-MNAs/ Ex-MPAs & Ex-Senators & Ex CJ still have a chain of facility such as medical, travelling ticket, waives in electricity/ gas, water and telephone bill, waives in payment of govt. duties, keeping bullet proof cars, living in govt. given bungalows, keeping heavy contingent of security guards at the residence, keeping cook, Mali, driver, maids, children schooling, complete leisure.

All seems valid and accessible so long as they are in power or in office and as soon as the tenure goes over all such facility or PERK should be ceased as the country status does not permit and has strength to afford the heightening cost of 'PERKs' for those who are no more.

The country is for 190 million people not for any specific person, tribes or family. It’s a people govt. for the people and by the people so people is the first and foremost preference whose welfare becomes the state responsibility. Everyone has right to obey the rules injected in the constitutional book nobody is above the law.

Politicians Facility or Entitlement need not be carry forwarded - It’s not a legacy or inheritance that needs to be continued from father to the son or daughter, from father-in-law to son-in-law, or from grandfather to grandson or up to the extent of individual death – no - never.

If you are no more MNA or MPA or Chief Justice, holding any govt. offices and have been retired or have left the position you were holding so Facility & PERK that’s you were availing or your family goes discontinued as soon as you leave your position & place in the Govt. machineries, emphasized by a university graduate.

There were no security threat to any one as PPP chairman, Ex-President & Ex-premier asked earlier to provide them security on govt. expenses.  

It’s just a matter of so-called prestige, pomp and show, rank and dignity, rank & position, or past glories & delusion of grandeur are the phobia & craziness which the retired MNAs/ MPAs/ Ex Senators or EX CJ wants to maintain on national money.
Therefore the nation is looking towards new Chief Justice Supreme Court of Pakistan, Honorable Tasadduq Hussain Jillani to intervene personally and repeal the law if the 'PERKs' is continued to Ex MNAs/ MPAs & Ex Senators or Ex-CJ, abolish the “Exemption and Immunity clause” from the constitutional book so that NAB/ NRO can play its vital role & onerous responsibility with dedication and loyalty in the favor of the country and we the people can get national looted money back to the national treasury from the politicians, media & business magnates. urged by the group of people sharing their concern at open public forum.

Dec 10, 2013

Thousands of Public Primary & Secondary schools in Rural & Urban area of Sind province have been closed due to lack of basic facility & Chef Minister of Sind looking law experts’ instead to resolve the chronic issues figuratively.


Chief Minister Sind asking Law experts to formulate policy to rectify the educational system in Sind.

He expressed his concern over the ‘educational system in the province’ & emphasized to improve the system asking law experts to design a set of rules to run the educational system said in a press conference.
 
It’s astounding that CM Sind seemingly showing obliviousness but his stereotypical comments reflecting connivance, he being a Chief executive of the province is well aware that what’s going around in rural and urban areas in terms of public primary and secondary school and what are the substantial reason of ruins.

Does it a failure of govt. local educational administration or involvement of social and political figures who have made the education topsy-turvy?
 
Are the public schools fully equipped with the basic facilities that’s essentially required to run a school – Currently school has a dilapidated building, an isolated deserted school with no student and no teachers, no black board, no desk and chair, no drinking water, no toilet, un-surfaced floor and unplaster walls and ceiling, hanging iron bar from the ceiling (a life threat), no doors and windows, naked electric wire moving to and fro, chocked sanitary lines giving school a dumped house & about ‘ghost school’ it lies only in the file & originally does not exist, group of people lambasted at open public forum.

The land allocated for School has been encroached by social and political land mafia, school building has been occupied by the influential lords and no legal support in litigation on legal matters.
Recently In urban Sind, Karachi where most of the public primary and secondary school buildings had been evacuated on the plea to sell out to private sector school but it could not & sold out to real estate developers who made residential flats and commercial complexes in spite of hue and cry from parents and even students & teacher no one from govt. authority rescued the school.

If such things happens in the province the judiciary we believe should intervene as from the treasury benches we don’t expect any help, said by a group of women protesters along with school teachers holding play cards and lodging their complaints before press club.
Funds granted on the name of public schools are not invested but goes into the personal coffers of local administration. Every year federal & provincial govt. earmark handsome amount to utilize on schools with the motive to spread education among children living in rural and urban area but it just remains a radiant & vibrant idea does not materialize and the huge allocated budget goes misused on the name of school development.

There is no check and balance and lot of dots into the shape of criminals are sitting in education department of Sind and if you connect the dots you will arrive at the real culprit upon whose instruction the unbridled corruptions (in school administration) are continued in the region, annoyed father shared his disappointment with media who got his son dropped from the school as there were no teachers and children instead to be taught in the class room his son was playing outside of the school when contacted the head mistress, she smiled & shrugged off, said there is shortage of teachers what can I do?
Schools are on the verge of complete disaster & thousands of school have already been closed in rural and urban Sind due to lack of mandatory facility for students and teacher – an awful & shabby-infrastructure, derelict school building without any renovation and refurbishment by the callous provincial & local govt. authority despite repeated complaints from the inhabitants the worsening status of school remains unattended.

Parents seem helpless to raise any voice as the MNA/ MPAs of the same constituencies connives and under their patronage (of course) such irregularities & abruptness are mushrooming.
In interior Sind due to school closures parents have diverted to enroll their children in the Mosque and Madrasa for Arabic education which itself is a question mark in today’s environment, some joined Madrasa and some are involved in social crimes.
In Pakistan we have millions of unregistered Madrasa and every week a new Madrasa comes into being, neither local management dares to ask who is the tutors and from where they come - are they really qualified or having any academic and technical expertise and did they register Madrasa with the Ministry of Hajj & Religious affairs?

It is candid that we have educational law in place but needs to apply & validate, raid and arrest such elements who has spread out Madrasa-network across the country, an unauthorized & illegal business.

Ministry official should visit on regular basis (for cross checking) in different localities, needs to fix accountability of local administration to survey & stop the illegal & unplanned construction of Mosque and Madrasa looming on the horizon in urban and rural area of Sind.
A proper investigation to be conducted on regular basis to eliminate such poison that is killing our generation & keeping them busy in unproductive & illicit activities, an stringent action indeed required to uproot its bases across the province but sadly there are unscrupulous employees, scoundrels and parasites in the department under whose shades the crimes are grooming and the lion as such getting its share.

The bearded person who is identified as Maulvi/ Maulana they influx in the city and villages and start associating and mingling with local people, joins the Mosque and perform as Pesh Imam arranges five time prayers in the Mosque & gathers people after congregation, induce them to follow Islamic teaching presenting rosy picture and attains confidence of people surrounds him.

They start from primary Islamic-books highlighting the self-created image of Heaven and Hell on the wall and blackboards, convincing the children to sacrifice their lives, by doing so they will be taken to the Heaven & Holy prophet (peace be upon him) will receive them personally, they will be awarded a big land in the paradise where the beautiful women and boys will be serving them day and night.
A mock picturesque explicitly is painted and engraved into the mind of innocent children in Madrasa. It refers a press report when raided by Pakistani military who got Waziristan & Fata area evacuated in 2007 from Taliban hold.

Media covered the area where the walls of Madrasa had been painted delicately showing fictitious scenery of Heaven to persuade & attract the children to join the team as Mujahid with the motive to jihad & holy-war against foreigners and during the process if they die, they would be martyred said by Madrasa students who had been held captive by militant group.

The motive behind Arabic education in Madrasa apparently is negative & instances are there where it worked on hidden agenda. It got the lead from Afghanistan & Tehriek-e-Taliban that has engulfed the whole country, primarily it loomed & heightened from General Zia-UL-Haq era.
Madrasa prepares Mujahedeen in the shade of Arabic education, they prepare innocent children for Jihad the ulterior motive of terrorism, it produces activists and radicals a general perception among masses.
 
The innocent student are brain washed and used to sabotage and desecrate public and private properties, bombs are planted & detonated, vehicle stuffed with explosive is rammed to the building & the innocent students are used a suicide bomber, they do bomb blast at public places.

The culture really has rusted the whole nation these days, said by aggrieved school teachers who were teaching children but land mafia grabbed school building in interior Sind.
And this is because of govt. persistent ignorance that schools at primary and secondary level (in rural and urban areas) which should have been worth full and active having it equipped with basic facilities now has been replaced with Madrasa, a free hand to flourish crimes instead to give a scientific & professional studies our children have been pushed towards militancy & other social evils.

We have a best example of Jam-e-Hafsa/ Lal masjid Islamabad a den of terrorist where thousands of students’ young girls/boys & youth were studying the so called Islamic education in Lal Masjid.
The CM however should know that the educational system already equipped with due legislation & it is complied with academic institutions but it matters that how meaningfully the existing law (as a shield) are supportive to protect the institutions or it has been just a piece of paper, adding no value in redressing the grievances, consistent depravity & frustration being faced by the students of public school.

No output of the law, a serious discrimination of have’s & have’s not, those are sitting in the assemblies are not sincere in development work in their constituencies.
The power greedy completes five years and for next election they join another political party to keep their hypocrisy continue. No real crusader or helper to help poor masses.

Yes these hypocrites talk astronomically during their election campaign, do a lot of promises but all gets vanished when the candidate wins the election, no progress and prosperity just a sugar coated word delivered in a mammoth gathering, a rhetoric & political posturing and nothing more.
There are relevant Boards for secondary and higher secondary schools & Higher Education Commission who are liaising with academic institutes for its day to day business at college & university level.

Apart from, Vice Chancellors of the Universities who becomes the Chief executive of Colleges, Universities & Campuses through his constitutional and statutory bodies the administrative and technical matters are dealt and streamlined.
But here we are talking about public primary and secondary school a well-planned educational policy are in place for rural and urban but it’s merely a chapter of constitutional book, neither being applied to eliminate the barriers & leading corruptions to cleanse nor to ensure a better education facilitated by upgrading & maintaining school building, provision of teachers according to the need of the school - truly are the initial needs required to have it resolved through the existing educational laws no fresh law indeed required, highlighted by group of parents gathered in one of the school parents meeting.

We don’t know what sort of law expertise CM is looking or wants to enact legislation to ameliorate the educational system, asked by academicians?
However there are in-competencies not in terms of any legislation but it signifies administrative loose-control, serious carelessness, negligence and omission that’s has eclipsed & detracted the students from accessibility of primary and secondary education in Sind.

The rundown building & rickety furniture or no furniture at all, unavailability of essential facilities which is the pre-requisites of the school needs to provide on priority where wearing and tearing is not being attended since decades resulting the children has gone away from the school, tutors have left and school building just has been a structure of four wall that’s too has been converted into cow dung producing factory. In place of students, school has been crowded by donkeys, puppies, flock and other animals.
At some places school are used as a KATCHRA KUNDI (where garbage are piled up), a live example of govt. apathy, unshaken attitude who does not take notice to renovate the premises so that school may restore it original business.

Unequivocally the pertinent legislation running abreast with the educational institutions in the region but the adamant attitude of the authority who precludes & not performing their onerous responsibility with dedication and loyalty.
Every year govt. envisages good amount in its annual development program to run the school at primary, secondary & higher secondary level in urban and rural area but the amount goes unchecked and not utilized sincerely.

As such a major chunk of educational budget goes to satisfy the satiated & greedy govt. official who devour it and not cares for the future of their voters or voter’s children as children of Ruling elites or Treasury benches are not studying either in the rural or urban areas.
They send their children in costly private school running in the country, UK/ US and in other European states to get their children masters from foreign universities so why they should care or think for the future of voter’s children an annoyed School teacher asserted.

As mentioned there are outnumbered schools in rural and urban area but because of lacking the basic facility at schools, students are sitting under the tree on the grass with tattered clothes and books, teacher taking class outside of school premises.
In some school though it has some basic facility in the building but due to no tutor at all someone from the community comes ahead and starts teaching, an special efforts from such honest people who are serving the shabby children to get them educated at primary level, services on humanitarian ground, the impoverished people arranged themselves to educate their children with the help of some qualified people living in the area.

In some village schools have been occupied by influential people parking their vehicles inside the school, at some places in school cultivated crops, sugar canes & other appliances used for cultivation are stored. The school being utilized as a police barrack, & some places school have been converted into govt. offices, coverage shown by electronic media.
We have seen that school in urban has been replaced with skyscrapers & some school converted into Restaurant/ Motels, Business shopping malls etc. said by lady school teacher when the children were protesting against occupation of their school by one of the builder who was bulldozing their school, referring the recent incident happened in Karachi.

Notwithstanding uproars from students, teacher and parents – No authority from Sind govt. came to rescue the school & ultimately the student had been merged to another nearest school.
The situation can be imagined that how the students are studying in extreme congested and suffocated environment, in one room 60-70 students have been stuffed without induction of any additional facility in the school it refers the tale of one school in Karachi.

We have been reading and witnessing regular coverage in print and electronic media about the
ü  dilapidated condition of school

ü  encroachment of school

ü  demolition of school

ü  lack of basic facility to boys/ girls studying in primary & secondary level

ü  no tutors available in school

ü  school building are there but not yet restored for schooling

ü  schools have been encroached by social and political vandals

ü  Schools have been sold out to private entrepreneur & no replacement arranged.

ü  Instead of student in the school animals and other materials have been stored

ü  Funds approved by ministry of education are not given to the school administration &

ü  If the fund is released it is not utilized sincerely but it goes in the pocket of corrupted govt. officials 

ü  Related ‘secretariat’ who are governing ‘Schools’ administration in the city/ region are not paying due diligence to ameliorate school condition.
The above are the doable action, the CM therefore should do his personal intervention to resolve instead to talk about further legislation or seeking help of law expertise.

In the following City/ Districts of Sind province there are schools which needs CM attention to get a clear picture about its functionality.
