Invest resources on children for better tomorrow: Mirwaiz

Srinagar: Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while terming the quality education as the major tool for the development and upliftment of nations urged the people of Kashmir to invest their resources on their children for a better tomorrow.
According to the statement, he stated this while addressing students, teachers, civil society activists and youth at Four Friends Public School Gili Kadal, Nowshehra.
“No nation in the world can progress and develop unless it makes the imparting quality education to its children as its mission and aim as it is quite evident that western countries have touched new heights in progress and development by putting in its resources into education and research in various fields,” he said.
Mirwaiz said that Kashmiri children are full of talent and they can compete with other students at any level but the only thing is that their talent needs to be exploited in a better way.
He said while imparting worldly knowledge to the children, moral and ethical values should be inculcated among the students and Islamic teaching should act as guiding principles and there should be no compromise on this front.
“When Kashmir was under the tight grip of illiteracy, darkness and poverty, the then Mirwaiz Alama Ghulam Rasool Shah laid the foundation of Islamia school and launched a large scale war against poverty and illiteracy in Kashmir and today the whole valley is reaping the benefits of the step taken by late Mirwaiz Shah in the shape of educational institutions that have come up in every area of the region which is a welcome step,” he said.
