Promotion of Violence in Schools and Indoctrination of young developing minds- A severe conflict

By Hassaan Ahmed


Middle and High school years are by all means the fundamental development age that transforms children into informed citizens of the world. However, if dealt with corruption, this age can cause the young brain to transform into criminals-teachers are the primary development factor.



Unfortunately, Pakistani public/Government institutions are home to teachers that are inept at delivering unbiased education for the development of young minds. The element of moral corruption prevails to such an extent that destroys nurturing of young minds to ask all questions.



The indoctrination and sect-centered education is the most severe conflict happening across the globe more so in developing countries like Pakistan. Additionally, the hyper-religious behaviour existing in educational institutions halts the growth mindset of its individuals. This attitude is detrimental to its core! Pakistan is a multi-cultural country and hosts people from all walks of life.

Due to this moral corruption element, those belonging to other sects suffer from otheration and issues ranging from representation to violence.

The provision of such education that instigates violence is a crime, as it gives rise to criminal acts and criminals in the society. People get easily manipulated and divided through such curriculum and start to hate on each other for their differences.

agreed. While in flourishing education systems, the differences are celebrated and become strengths of the diverse community as a whole.

Given that, soon, Single National Curriculum will be implemented in our country, I am afraid that issue of indoctrination and hatred towards other minorities will be mushroomed. Unfortunately, we are moving backwards while the world is moving forward.

While the issue is at the grassroots level, I only wonder who can replace the current people in power. Can we say that the next best person would not be hyper religious and/or ethnically biased? We see, in the case of our Prime Minister even, how even if you chose to live or learn or think a certain way, when you acquire positions of power, you cannot separate yourself from the rest of the system. You have to take the rest of the system along with you and let it operate in congruence, which unfortunately includes the biased, and the mullahs and what not. Therefore, for impartial leaders to run our country is but a dream, for it is difficult…

I absolutely agree. The interconnected nature of state affairs and religion will make this task of effective education reform increasingly difficult.

I think that the decision makers should be changed. Because they are those who can make a difference, and right now, almost every decision maker is corrupt which leads to corruption at lower levels as well. When better and strict decision makers will be hired, these conflicts can be resolved. But there is one thing, when ever someone (read that as a good decision maker) tries to help the public, he faces oppression and critisicm from other govt. departments and this thing makes it difficult make a difference.
