Students and teachers should shun the struggle for some meaningless reforms and calling for rights in the current corrupt education system. Rather they must rise to eradicate the whole rotten education system that is corrupting the lives of the students. Practically this can only be done by joining the global struggle of Hizb ut-Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah, which has entered into its final stage.

Privatization of the educational institutions, class based education system and secular syllabus – The colonial method to produce a slavish mentality!!!
The solution to the problems of the education system lies only in the Islamic education policy implemented by the Khilafah state
Protests by students and teachers against the Punjab government’s decision to privatize the educational institutions by granting sovereignty and increasing fees continues. In response, the Punjab government has resorted to baton charges, tear gas, arrests and other tactics.
However, the deep enlightened view clearly manifests that the Pakistan educational system is decayed and rotten and a direct result of the enslaving colonial policies. A few reforms are not going to change its basic structure except prolonging the life of this slave generating educational system. The foundation of this educational system is built on the secular basis aimed at producing cheap labour for the West and secular personalities who act as cheap intellectual agents to assist the West in subjugating us.
It will be the Khilafah that will bring an end to all the English and Urdu medium schools and establish Arabic medium schools throughout the Ummah. Neither foreign, missionary schools will be allowed in the Khilafah state nor any other board of education or syllabus except the official one. Different Schools for different classes of the society will not be allowed such as schools for the overseas citizens, military schools, schools for the rich and schools for orphans etc. Primary and secondary level education will not only be free rather it would be compulsory as well. While endeavors will be made to provide free higher education for as many students as possible. Co-education will not be allowed in the Khilafah state, neither amongst the students nor teachers, except in extra ordinary cases.
But above all, the education system in the Khilafah produces such Islamic personalities that are unique and distinctive in their thoughts, and for whom the aim of the life is to worship and seek the pleasure of Allah and to make Islam the dominate ideology all over the world. The Islamic educational policy does not produce individuals whose whole life revolves around their stomachs, nor does it teach them how to hunt the prey like a vulture or a fox. Instead, the Islamic education system first helps the student to figure out his ultimate purpose in life besides teaching him all the subjects necessary for material progress.
Students and teachers should shun the struggle for some meaningless reforms and calling for rights in the current corrupt education system. Rather they must rise to eradicate the whole rotten education system that is corrupting the lives of the students. Practically this can only be done by joining the global struggle of Hizb ut-Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah, which has entered into its final stage. Thus, through the Islamic educational policy the Khilafah will once again produce Jabir Bin Hayan, Al-Khwarzami, Imam Shafi, Imam Abu-Hanifa, Imam Ghazali, Al-Kindi and Ibn-Qudama.
O respectable teachers and students! Reestablishing the Khilafah is your duty, so rise and make this change possible.
Deputy Spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Pakistan
