PASHTO DEMANDED AS MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION : Doctor Khan Tehreek patron-in-chief Abid Muneer demanded imposing Pashtu as medium of instruction in schools.
Pakhtoon nation rendered matchless sacrifices during historical independence movement in the sub-continent, and they should be given due acknowledgment by declaring Pashtu as medium of instruction in the schools across Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), Abid Munir said while speaking in a seminar here at press club on Saturday.
He said none of the nation of the world could get a distinctive position unless they got their basic education in their mother tongue.
Abid Munir said though Urdu was our national language but even then the country’s superior competitive exam, CSS, was being taking in English, while science and technology and medical education was being imparted in English as well, which, he said, prove that the nation has yet to take independence from the clutches of British.
He stressed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan to meet the long lasted demand of Pakhtoons by introducing Pashtu as medium of instruction in the government-run schools across the province.
