Future of students/Boys and girls at stake due to closure of schools

It is reported that children in Swat,Shangla and Waziristan are not going to schools and colleges due to unrest and political uncertain situations in said areas of Pashtunkhwa.All students and their parents are scared to go out of their houses due to worst security problems.schools and colleges are also closed for the last several months. parents and relatives of the students are worried about the future of their children. .In such uncertain situations the most vulnerable people are children and women who are badly affected due to indiscriminate bombardment and curfew .the future of the children of the pashtuns seems to be dark. Due to the wrong anti-pashtun policies of the establishment of pakistan, the future of the pashtun nation as a whole is at stake. mulla and military both are responsible for producing terrorists, extremists and obscurrentist forces and the promotion of these negative elements is the aim and objectiv of the said mulla-military. Both conspire to let pashtun children lag behind the ornament of eduction and they want to see them going towards extremism and fundamentalism which are suitable terms for the clergy and military in the region and serve their purpose. uneducated and ignorant pashtun could be easily deceived and used as compared to one who is educated and literate. The ignorant people are told that the foreign troops have occupied Afghanistan, go there and and fight against them as it is a Jehad (Holy War).But we Pashtun term it as baseless,groundless and a pack of lies.Foreign troops have come to Afghanistan as the saviour of the Pashtun/Afghans who protected our culture,language,history and national identity which were at extinct by the negative and anti-pashtun/Afghan forces in the region.The foreign forces have come behind terrorists and their staunch promoters who now pretend to have termed against them but in reality the support is still there.We hope that foreign troops in kabul will teach a lesson to those who have been supporting the terrorists since long sitting miles away from Durand line.But foreign troops should not do such acts which will go against Pashtun /Afghans.International community should take the matter of the pashtun/Afghan students espacially girls very serious as the closure of the educational institutions in Pashtun areas will help in breeding extremism and fundamentalism in region which will not be only a threat to the region but will create problems for the entire peaceful world as well.The uneducated youth will be got addmitted in religious seminaries where they are thought what goes against the future of the Pashtun/Afghan people and civilised world.Pashtun need education,health facilities,sanitation and good life particularly in FATA.Pashtun do not like extremism and fundamentalism which darken their future and turn them against the civilised nature of the world.The attitudes of our youth will become democratic and tolerant when provided with good education.Positive and saneful people should be taken into confidence among Pashtun/Afghans who wish to see Pashtun youth tolerant,democratic and educated to walk side by side with modern world.
