Private Education Network President’s Reply to Mubashir Luqman

The Private Education Network (PEN KPK) president, Mr. Saleem Khan gave a video message to Mubasher Lucman criticism on Pakistan Private Education Commission.

The well-known journalist, in his recent video on Youtube used abusive language for Private Education Network by saying that the country’s situation due to the pandemic attack of coronavirus is critical and they are asking for fees just to run their businesses.

The online system of education is introduced by HEC however he said that it is just created with intend of receiving fees so they can run private educationalists can run their businesses. Furthermore, he said it is not a system rather it has become an industry. Another vague statement provided by this journalist was that private educational institutes should grant extra allowance to their employees in these crises.

He mentioned all these claims while being ignorant of the fact if private institutes stop taking the fees how they would be able to pay the staff? Is it possible for them to pay full salaries to staff and further allowance without having monthly fees?

Being a part of Private Education Network, KPK, Mr. Saleem replied in a civilized way for journalist claims against his network and people who put countless efforts to provide youth with quality education.

In the message Saleem Khan said, in such a commending period Mubasher Lucman is busy talking fowl for the noble profession.  “Private School has volunteered to provide their building as quarantine so that we can together fight against this pandemic situation.” Mubasher Lucman makes such videos to get easy fame and publicity. Even in such a situation, he is trying to come up with videos with bad thoughts and words like “Mafia” for people relating to this sector.

PEN President, KPK said that we will provide an answer to your claims while keeping within the law. “There is no room to tolerate such statements further for our sector.” The right to receive fee is given by the Supreme Court and while speaking against it this journalist could be blacklisted for speaking against the court.

The statements of the journalist showed he doesn’t know the positive role private schools are playing in the society. Parents and other authorities have full confidence over private schools because this sector produces leaders and such language isn’t acceptable.
