Concentrate on Education Too

Dear Editor,

Due to devastating war and lack of political will, Afghanistan is still suffering illiteracy and perhaps it will persist since the Afghan government and its international allies are as busy as bee in other political matters and dealing with insecurity. But I think the real need of Afghans is education and development in Afghanistan largely depends upon an educated nation. Majority of population in Afghanistan is illiterate. We need professionals in every fields of life. Today education should be the purpose of every Afghan youth. All the Afghans ought to send their children to schools.

Because children are the assets of our country. Especially, women have been deprived of education during and after the Taliban government. The government has to pay attention on making more and more schools and make specials plans for women education. Afghans have the talent to go forward and compete the world. But without education we will remain backward and the world will continue categorizing our country as third world. Education has been emphasized in our religion too and is must for both man and woman. So, it is hereby brought to the attention of Afghans to let their children go schools. The prime need of Afghanistan is education and we have to leave no stone unturned to seek knowledge.

Thank You Very Much
