Students of Dawa schools uncertain about completion of academic year
Karachi: Students from schools which come under the umbrella of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) fear that they may not be able to complete the academic year if their schools are closed. Their parents are worried too, while some are considering other schools as the last option for their children's education, it was learnt.

Meanwhile, students of Dawa schools protested on Wednesday outside the Karachi Press Club (KPC) to condemn the government's action against their schools. Almost all protestors were under the age of 12 and did not display an understanding of why their schools were being closed. Many had a common answer to why they chose to study at Dawa schools. 'Teachers at Dawa schools give us religious education which includes the Holy Quran,' they said. Some students also cited Hifz-e-Quran as the principal cause of the high enrolment at Dawa schools.

"They charge very little fee (between Rs150 and Rs250), and only Rs400 rupees are charged for those who wish to become Hafiz-e-Quran," a grade 6 student from one such school in Landhi said.

The student who was the oldest in the entire group appeared clueless, however, regarding the JuD's alleged involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks. He maintained that it must be a rumour. He also said that their parents are concerned about their education, and some are already asking the school management about transferring their children to other schools.

In the wake of the recent Mumbai attacks, the Indian government presented a resolution before the UN Security Council (UNSC). The latter then instructed Pakistan to ban what the UNSC believes are terrorist organisations. Security forces launched a countrywide crackdown on the JuD and its derivative institutions, including schools, hospitals and ambulance services.

The JuD has 158 schools and three colleges across the country, which cater to more than 24,000 students. In Karachi alone, the organisation runs 14 schools, each having more than 300 students on average. The JuD operates 26 schools and two colleges in the rest of Sindh, with approximately 5,000 students and 150 teachers. All of these schools are registered with the local examination boards for classes nine to twelve, while lower secondary schools follow their own syllabus, which includes both English and Arabic as compulsory subjects.

JuD media coordinator Nadeem Ahmed said that police personnel raided one of their schools in Malir, arrested the principal and sealed the school premises. "They interrogated teachers and other staff in front of students. This has tarnished the reputation of our schools," he said. "We closed all schools in Karachi to ensure that this should not happen again at least in the presence of students."

Moreover, teachers from JuD schools have been asked to report to the area police stations along with their CNICs. "Our teachers have to assure the local police that they have no criminal record. Only then would they be allowed to work freely," Ahmed said, adding however, that teachers at JuD schools are not affiliated with the JuD itself. "The number of teachers who are JuD activists is negligible. We appoint teachers on the basis of merit. Most of the heads of our schools also have no connection with the Jamaat either," he said.

Due to the prevailing situation, JuD schools have announced their winter vacations a few days earlier than planned in the hope that things will be normal when the students return in January.

"Six of our schools located in Badin, Golachi, Matli, Tando Muhammad Khan, Sakran and Tando Allahyar were sealed by security forces," JuD coordinator, Faisal Nadeem said. "This crackdown spread panic and fear among parents who did not send their children to other JuD schools which were not closed."

Nadeem added, meanwhile, 0that four of the sealed schools were opened later because of efforts made "at a personal level." The News
