Islamabad:Merit has no space in this Islamic Republic and vacancies are filled on the basis of corruption, recommendation and family link, said Vice-Chancellor of National Institute of Cultural Studies, Lok Virsa, Rauf Khalid, here.
He was giving the talk on ‘Youth in governance’ organised by Debating and Literary Society, Quaid-i-Azam University, in collaboration with Transparency International Pakistan. Advisor Students Affairs Mahmud-ul-Hassan Butt was the moving spirit behind the show.
Khalid said, “We are promoting just quantity and not quality in every field including education. He said that the more one is corrupt, the more he or she is considered to have the right to govern and get a post in bureaucracy. He said that when dynastic play role in choosing the rulers, the ordinary citizens stand no chance to enter the corridors of power. We have given right to interpret Islam to maulvi who does not know anything about Islam.”
He said that the army rules one after the other changed the priorities and instead of a welfare state, we made the country founded by Quaid-i-Azam, a national security state.
Advisor Students Affairs of International Islamic University Dr Safeer Awan said that political parties operate through media. He said that nexus between capitalists and media tycoons came up with social designing in their favour. That is why there is huge chunk of under-privileged in US also just like we find here.
QAU Vice Chancellor Dr Masoom Yasinzai lamented that only 5 or 6 per cent youth are in higher education. He said that education got less than two per cent in the next budget. He said that corruption is the actual terrorism in the country. He said that those not doing their work properly are corrupt. Calling oneself as Punjabi or Pathan is also corruption. He said that you will find a level of corruption in all aspects of life.The news
