Education, not metros, build nations: Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri

Addressing the concluding ceremony of speech competition held under the banner of Bazm-e-Minhaj, MQI President Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri has said that there is no difference between terrorists and those who keep the children of the nation deprived of the quality educational facilities. He said that Pakistan will become honorable with the establishment of institutions of international quality, not with construction of orange lines and metro projects. He said that whenever the rulers visit London and New York, they should also visit the universities of these cities so that they come to know the importance of knowledge. He said that every project launched by Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri is a blend of education and training.
