Afghanistan has broken shackles of slavery: Imran Khan

Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on Monday said Afghanistan has broken the shackles of slavery, referring to developments taking place in Afghanistan where Taliban have taken control of the country.

Khan said this at the launch of the first phase of the Single National Curriculum (SNC) for students of grades one to five today, Geo News reported.

Khan said that it is very necessary to break the shackles of slavery. “A slave mind can never achieve anything big,” he said, explaining his vision behind it.

The prime minister said the launch of the SNC was the fulfilment of his 25-year-old dream to end educational disparity among different sections of society.

He said nowhere in the world do students of the same country study three curricula as is the case in Pakistan, where students of public and private educational institutions and religious seminaries are studying different syllabi.

He regretted that the difference between Urdu and English-medium schooling has resulted in creating a gulf between different social classes with the ills of intellectual inferiority or superiority complexes.

English, he said, did not remain limited to a language to learn knowledge, but became a status symbol.

He expressed satisfaction that in the new curriculum, the special emphasis had been laid on the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) as an inspiration of ethics and morality. He mentioned that minorities will also be taught about their religions.
