Honor killing can be killed with educationOn 6th March 2018, Supreme Court of Pakistan issued an order that Law Admission Test (LAT, an aptitude test) is mandatory for all those students who want to take admission in law. The decision has taken in haste and implemented immediately. The first Law Admission Test was conducted in August 2018 by Higher Education Commission(HEC). Majority of students belonging to far-flung areas was unawared about it and it, consequently, lost a year of thousands of students. No students raised voice against it because it was order of Supreme Court. But now LAT was recently conducted by HEC on September 5, 2020 which had few flaws. Firstly, it was not according to level of intermediate students. Secondly, It neither contains a single question from Pakistan Studies nor from basics of Law. Thousands of Students applied for it throughout country. But questions were so tough that students get fear of failure. Thus the chairman of HEC Mr. Tariq Banuri and director Mr: M. Azhar should direct to give grace marks to students. Otherwise, majority would fail the test and lose their precious year. Imtiaz Essa Halepoto Jamshoro Monsoon wreak havoc in SindhThe monsoon rains have lashed the whole country carrying numerous problems on their back , leaving the innocent citizens at the mercy of self centered stakeholders . But due to heavy rain , the province affected the most in the entire country is Sindh and Karachi in particular. The fake leaders, mealy mouthed stakeholders and double dealing owners are credited to have pretended to serve the karachi .It's a fact of matter that all those who feel them the custodians
have nothing to do with the problems of Karachi . They seem to be concerned only about revenue generated. Unfortunately, karachi has always had fair weather friends. The present rainfall in the  problem sprang up compelling people to stay home again since they had no boats to go out for their needs. Moreover, Power breakdown was inevitable in such a disastrous monsoon. Recently , the government has announced flood alerts in rural areas . The condition of Sindh is the most terrifying in these following days. May Allah almighty have pity on us. We remember the destruction caused by the flood in 2010 . Thousands of people were displaced and rehabilitation took almost years. Faisal Khan Fayazuddin Channa Channa MachiCOVID-19 testingThe recent statement of Punjab education minister
that all the teachers of schools, colleges and universities of the country will have to undergo COVID-19  then what will happen to the students of the school if the schools opens on September 15 next as envisaged by the federal government? Moreover, the federal government should take steps to test the students for COVID-19 also. Shabir JamaliNawabshahA delayed move in right direction It is good to note and appreciate that the NAB Chairman has taken notice of reports about at napping from the PNCA and
has ordered NAB Rawalpindi to conduct inquiry and submit initial report within a fortnight. This is apparently is a delayed move by any agency though in the right direction as the findings, if taken to their logical conclusions, will save the only national institution of its kind from further depletion or thefts of precious national art treasure preserved by PNCA for years together. While appreciating this move which appears to be in the national interest, the worthy NAB Chairman is requested to expand the scope of the inquiry by NAB Rawalpindi to also probe the appointments made by the Federal Education
Minister and part time Culture Minister from Lahore during the last two years in PNCA, National Art Gallery, Shakir Ali Museum Lahore and Central Board of Film Censors to say the least. There are reports about his excessively indulging in sheer nepotism and favouritism and obliging close relatives in flagrant violations of the rules and regulations, please.
