No significant event was organised either by the government or non-profit organisations on International Literacy Day on Sunday.

 

The Literacy and Non-Formal Basic Education Department Punjab and NGOs in the field have planned events for Monday (today). Pakistan is among few countries which spend the least on education sector while access and quality of education is also far behind the satisfactory level. It is generally believed that lack of the political will is the biggest hurdle in achieving maximum literacy.

 

The other challenges are because of social and economic factors which have been contributing to the spread of illiteracy in the country where around 60 million people aged above 10 years are illiterate.

 

Meanwhile, IJT Nazim Muhammad Zubair Safdar criticised the government for hollow slogans and an indifferent attitude towards the cause of literacy.
