Educational Horizons of Contemporary Pakistan
When we glance at the intellectual horizons of Pakistan, what appears before our eyes is an intractable melee of inconsistent and often conflicting systems, riven by deep fissures and pervasive discontinuities. This situation, not unlike that in practically any contemporary Muslim society, does not mean that there is any inherent or actual intellectual inferiority in these societies. Pakistan itself can boast a vast treasure of talents, skills, and rigor of intellect. But it does engender a marked fragmentation of the country’s population.
