Reading about my heritage actualy makes me sad, yes i know my heritage is awesome! i mean come on i come from a line of muslims scholars, whos works in arts , literature and science were exceptional and ofcourse without their work the world as we know would not have existed, for example Muhammad ibn Musa Khwarizmi who is known for his renowned book "Calculation with Hindu Numerals". khwarizmi is often known as the father of algebra for his fundemental contribution in the field. Then theres Ibn-e-battuta, the great muslim traveller and scholar. The example of muslim contribution in science and arts are countless!. Our fathers made contributions in geography, astronomy, medicine and what not. Yes there is absolutely no doubt that our forefathers were bloody brilliant!!
What makes me sad is the fact that coming from a line of a such a brilliant scholars our country is still stuck with a mere 57% litracy rate! well that shoudnt be surprising since our country insists on spending just 2% of our GDP on education.
As quaid-e-azam muhammad ali jinnah said
"Without education it is complete darkness and with education it is light. Education is a matter of life and death to our nation"
Our founder told us again again about how necessary it is to get educated, how without it our country can never prosper. Is it because we have been ignoring the importance of education resulted into the stage of destruction we find our country into? the main question is what we can do about it? for nothing is set in stones and we can rise back up again and take control of the situation! those of you who have had the priviledge of getting a decent education, devote your free time to help others study. Help build schools and universities! Our country needs us so instead of just sitting in homes and complaining about how nothing can be done about this country, do something!.
