English medium system brought mental slavery: PM Imran
Prime Minister Imran Khan while addressing the Punjab Education Convention has said that the English medium education system introduced by the British rulers has alienated the students from their basic culture, English medium system brought mental slavery.
Imran Khan went on to say that Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Bazdar has been working quietly and people have been criticizing him.
PM Imran said that integrity and honesty were the hallmarks of a true leadership and stressed upon the need of making the young generations acquainted with the Seerat of Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him).
He said besides, imparting quality education to the young people with the use of modern technology, it was imperative to guide and educate them about the supreme qualities of Seerat-e-Nabi (PBUH) for their character building.
After independence, there should have been worked on the education system with one curriculum, but it was ended in three parallel education systems in the country ie; the religious seminaries, English medium and government owned schooling.
“In the past, best intellectuals had been groomed in the government owned schools, but later, the system waned and the private sector thrived making us servants of an alien culture,” he observed.
The prime minister also lauded federal minister Shafqat Mahmood and Punjab minister for their efforts over bringing reforms in the education sector especially introduction of single curriculum.
