of International Relations on "Pakistan's security in the changing regional and
international environment". The seminar was held under the programme on Peace
Studies and Conflict Resolution.
"Pakistan is passing through a very
turbulent phase of its history, and this is not without some positive prospects.
The need is to turn the disadvantages into advantages," said Ali Sarwar
While highlighting the historical dimension of Pakistan's
security, Naqvi said that throughout Pakistan's history, there had been a major
security problem. He stated that Pakistan's foreign policy has been largely
India-centric due to general sentiment of distrust in South Asia. For this
distrust to disappear or diminish, geography must be prioritized over history.
He elaborated that the bitter and conflict laced history should precede the
brighter and better future.
According to Naqvi, a nation is only powerful
if it has adequately addressed the concerns of human social development. The
causes of Pakistan's insecurity are rooted more internally than externally.
Problems like violence, drugs and extremism can be tackled with correct

Govt school thrives, as adoption gives new lease of life
Karachi: Due to rampant corruption, negligent attitudes and poor policies
of successive governments, many government schools across the province remain in
dilapidated states and have ceased to function. The MAO Government Primary and
Secondary School, located in Intelligence Colony, Sultanabad, Keamari Town,
however belies such apathy that is the norm in government schools
by former Sindh Governor, General (retd) Moinuddin Haider, in 1998 under the
'Adopt A School' program of Sindh Education Foundation (SEF), the primary
section of the school has been transformed into an ideal institution for
residents of the area. Since its adoption, there has also been a remarkable
increase in the enrolment rate that has increased exponentially over the
Over the last few years, the entire building has been renovated
and all basic facilities are being provided to the students. The portions of the
school plot, which had been occupied by the land mafia, have been recovered by
the school, and it has been converted from a one-room, roofless school to a
beautiful double-storey building which comprises of twelve spacious rooms, each
having four ceiling fans, a number of desks, a chair for the teacher along with
a separate staff room, principal's office and washrooms.
Rasheed Gul said that the entire process of change took place after the
school was adopted. "The primary section was started in 1918, and in 1957, it
came under the aegis of the Sindh government, but there was no developmental
work," Gul said. "All the development that you see now took place after it was
"When I was posted here in 1994, I taught children under open
skies for four years. During this time, I observed that rains would result in
the suspension of classes, while stagnant water would extend the holidays," Gul
narrated. "There was no drinking water and no washrooms available either," he
continued. "In 2000, Rs2 million were spent and the whole building was
demolished and reconstructed. Initially, it had 4 rooms but after
reconstruction, it now has 12 rooms, with each room having four ceiling fens.
The entire building was renovated at a cost of more than Rs10 million," he
He also pointed out that the poor physical state of the school
made the locals reluctant about sending their children to school, but after the
completion of renovation work in 2007, things changed dramatically and more than
600 students are now being educated in both shifts of the primary
Speaking about the improvements in the school, Gul said that
adequate furniture was provided, the building was painted, the school was
provided with computers and water was also supplied. He acknowledged the
contribution of the donors, who, he said, were instrumental in getting most of
General (retired) Moin Uddin Haider, when asked about
government's support in the entire project, said that the government had always
disappointed with its lack of response. "The foundation of the secondary section
was so weak that water was coming out of the flooring, but the government did
not provide any funds for its reconstruction," he said. "Luckily the donors
agreed to bear the cost of this building as well."
Haider said that he
had written to the government several times for the appointment of teachers and
the release of funds, but to no avail. No recruitment has taken place in the
primary section since 1996, and there are only 18 teachers in both shifts. He
said that he would talk to the education minister in a forthcoming meeting about
all problems being faced by the school, including the recruitment of teachers. The News
