KHAIRPUR: Speakers at a seminar held at the Shah Abdul Latif University on Thursday called for abolition of ‘copy culture’,

self-financed schemes and class-based education system to enable nation to attain progress and prosperity.

Speaking at the seminar on ‘Save Education Save Sindh’ organised by a private Sindhi channel in collaboration with the university, SALU Vice Chancellor Prof Parveen Shah urged students to devote all the time and energy to their studies ‘because education is the most potent weapon they can use to change the world’.

Ghulam Nabi Morai, CEO of the TV channel, said the education was steadily going downhill. “Kindly rise and wage a war against societal diseases which have thrown us into the abyss of ignorance,” he said.

Prof Miandad Zardari called for abolition of ‘copy culture’, self-financed schemes and class-based education system while Engineer Ghulam Sarwar Kandhar said the students possessed degrees but unfortunately their minds were empty of true knowledge.

Prof Abdul Majeed Chandio, Prof Ghulam Raza Bhatti and PPP leader Syed Javed Ali Shah Jilani also spoke at the seminar.
