Pakistan to open first no-fee university on Independence Day (VIDEO)
"We are establishing the first fee-free university in Pakistan where students will not have to pay any fee,” Dr Mohammed Amjad Saqib, executive director of Akhuwat , a micro-finance firm offering interest-free loans (Qarz-e-Hasna) in Pakistan , told Khaleej Times.
“This is some kind of long-term Qarz-e-Hasan. First you get education and pay after 5, 10 or 20 years, when you are able to return it; because remember that you got education but didn't pay for it; but now when you have a job you can pay so that somebody else can also benefit," he said.
Dr Amjad Saqib added that "education is ultimate solution of our problems. We can't progress and compete with international community unless we are ahead in education . But it is a pity that a boy coming from a poor family may be able to complete 10-year education but can't receive higher education . We are not doing justice with our talent".
Akhuwat is already running a fee-free college in the provincial capital, housing more than 300 students from all provinces. It offers pre-medical, pre-engineering and ICT courses.
