Kashmir Committee Chairman Syed Fakhar Imam has said no country can join the list of developed nations without education. Speaking at a seminar on education at a private college here, he said every country had its own education standard which could be compared with other countries. He regretted that Pakistan could not achieve the required standard even after 72 years of its establishment and it was still unable to compete other countries. Among the first 500 universities of the world, only one Pakistani varsity is included in the list, he regretted adding that we are at the last positions among 1,000 best universities of the world. Comparing Pakistan and China education advancement, Fakhar Imam said that only 25,000 Pakistani students were studying in standard universities of foreign countries while two lakh Chinese were getting education in American varsities.
