Covid-19 and Educational Crisis in Pakistan
Being Muslims, we believe that the pandemics and Famines are the trials of Almighty Allah. It is obvious that the pandemics and famines come with many challenges with them and Fighting with them is not in control of man but there are some problems that are very important to solve and that’s why I want to draw your attention towards a serious problem, which is inevitable to solve.Universities Students are facing many difficulties due to Lockdown. The system introduced by Higher Education Commission (HEC) for online classes is a poor system that requires a very fast internet to run, but in many areas of Pakistan, the Internet’s facility is not so good, because of which many students are suffering from difficulties.
For a moment, even if we assume that online classes are necessary, but how can an accounting student get benefit from an online class? How can a math student learn math from online class? Therefore, the thing to think about is that if we want to continue with our online classes, we need to come up with something that works for everyone.
The second largest issue is that all the Universities of Pakistan have demanded the complete fee. Universities fees includes a lot of additional charges, including electricity, water and other facilities but the point to be think that when universities are closed, then why those additional charges are demanded? This is completely unfair that a poor student has to manage his complete fee with the additional charges of internet.
Just Imagine that how can a Son or daughter of a daily wager manage his internet facility with his fee. We all know that every servant has lost his job due to lockdown, every human being has become unemployed, then from where should this university fee be paid? The matter has reached to compulsion and when it comes to compulsion then crime arises and when crime arises then societies deteriorate and if crime arises now then it will be the fault of this government and not of society.
