He said that setting up of Daanish schools in backward and far-flung areas is resulting in promotion of education in these areas which will ultimately spread to as every corner of the province.He said that while Daanish schools are imparting modern knowledge to the children of deprived segments of the society they have also promoted a feeling in them that they have as much right over national resources as the elite. He said that six Daanish schools are imparting modern education to the students in Bahawalpur Division while eight more schools will be set up in Attock, Mianwali, Rajanpur and Dera Ghazi Khan during current year.Giving approval in principle to a special quota for the students of other provinces in Daanish schools, the Chief Minister said that it will promote national solidarity and brotherhood in accordance with the policy of Punjab government.He was presiding over 7th meeting of Daanish Schools Authority, here today.

Managing Director Daanish Schools System Yousaf Kamal gave a detailed briefing regarding the project of Daanish schools.The Chief Minister said that Pakistan was created for the purpose of ensuring equal rights to all citizens but while a handful of elite enjoyed all privileges during the last 64 years, the majority of people remained deprived of even basic facilities. He said that the poor are shedding their blood and sweat for national development and progress and it is the responsibility of the society to ensure due returns to them for their labour.He said that entire credit for bringing the deprived segments of the society into national mainstream goes to Pakistan Muslim League-N which has diverted resources to the marginalized classes and less-developed areas and laid the foundation of a revolution in education sector by starting the project of Daanish schools in backward areas. He said that the poorest of the poor students are getting modern education in Daanish schools and the scope of this project will be extended to the whole province.Issuing instructions for giving a final shape to the financial model of Daanish schools as soon as possible, the Chief Minister directed that such individuals should also be inducted in the board of governors of these schools which have an urge to serve the country and equip the new generation with modern education. He said that retired teachers, judges, civil servants and the best individuals from various sectors of life should be selected for this purpose but it should be ensured that bureaucracy and political influence should not have any interference in the management of these schools.He also issued instructions for conducting performance audit of the teachers and students of Daanish schools. He said that discipline in students is of vital importance and the students should be trained on proper lines for grooming their personality. He said that Pakistan is a poor country and government has limited resources therefore, it cannot afford extravagant expenditure. He said that six Daanish schools have been set up and in the light of the experience in the construction of Daanish schools, measures should be adopted for curtailing cost of construction of new schools, however, no compromise be made on the quality and standard.The Chief Minister issued instructions for taking immediate steps for construction of mosques in Daanish schools and directed that administration of the mosques should be completely free of sectarian prejudices and educate the students in the Quran and Hadith. He directed that starting of second shift in Daanish schools should also be considered and recommendations should be submitted to him in this regard in the next meeting.
