I absolutely agree with Humayun that we need to change the status quo and that education, education and more education is the need of the hour. But who will do this ? The status quo is perfectly happy to see a majority of the nation uneducated and illiterate. It suits their game-plan. So how does this happen you please tell me ?
I was reading on the internet that the per acre yield of wheat in India is 80% MORE than what we get in Pakistan. So if we grow 25 million tons of the grain and need 24 million tons for domestic use, WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO ACTUALLY GROW 45 MILLION TONS OF WHEAT IN THE COUNTRY ! The key word is Education and technology.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَذَرُواْ مَا بَقِيَ مِنَ الرِّبَا إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِين
فَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلُواْ فَأْذَنُواْ بِحَرْبٍ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَإِن تُبْتُمْ فَلَكُمْ رُؤُوسُ أَمْوَالِكُمْ لاَ تَظْلِمُونَ وَلاَ تُظْلَمُون
سوره البقرة:2 , آيت:278-279
O ye who believe! Fear Allah and give up what remains of interest, if you are truly believers. But if you do it not, then beware of war from Allah and His Messenger; and if you repent, then you shall have your principal; thus you shall not wrong nor shall you be wronged.
