Pak-Turk schools’ 17th anniversary


Date posted: June 11, 2012

PESHAWAR Thursday, June 07, 2012 The Pak-Turk Schools and Colleges Chairman Unal Tosur said on Wednesday that education was an effective tool for socioeconomic development and prosperity of a nation. Speaking at a function in connection with the 17th Anniversary of the “Pak-Turk Educational Institutions,” he said quality education was considered a prerequisite for production of skills required for socioeconomic development.

“We should work hard to educate our youth for the prosperity and development of our country,” he said, adding that the younger generation should work for a prosperous future through science and technology.

He said education should be considered as the most significant and vital investment to make the country’s future bright. Unal Tosur said 18 Pak-Turk international schools and colleges were functioning in almost all major cities of Pakistan. Around 155 Turkish and 400 local teachers were educating 6,500 students in Pakistan, he added.

The goal of Pak-Turk educational institutions was not to make money but to use the potential of the younger generation positively, he said, adding, “Our mission is to teach the students lessons of honesty, brotherhood, truthfulness and altruism.”

The students of Pak-Turk institutions had won 58 gold, 22 silver and 44 bronze medals so far, he added.

Fesih, managing director of the Pak-Turk schools and colleges, and Turgut, director planning and development, were also present on the occasion.

Journalists from Islamabad, Peshawar, Quetta and Lahore also attended the ceremony held in Islamabad.

Why should education in Pakistan be held hostage to the politics of other countries, however brotherly?

If Pakistan does indeed give in to pressure from the Turkish government, the move will be ironic, given the number of madressahs currently operating in the country with established links to political, religious or denominational movements that have a more than suspected record of terrorism, violence and spurious religious indoctrination.

The fight against poverty, ignorance and disunity is a shared responsibility among the government, the private sector, civil society and non-governmental organizations. The reason is that the government alone does not have the requisite human and capital resources to sustain this struggle.

Right to dissent in Turkey

The primary reason why members of Hizmet (Service), a faith-based social movement inspired by Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, have been attacked, vilified and stigmatized by a government that is dominated by overzealous political Islamists and pro-Iranian sympathizers is that Gülen is standing up to the increasingly authoritarian powers of Erdoğan, who has seized control of the republic’s institutions including the judiciary, leading to increased polarization and tension in Turkish society.
