Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has said that the future of Pakistan can only be secured through an educated and passionate youth.

"It is imperative for us to raise the youth's potential to the optimal level such that they could measure up to the challenges of today and tomorrow,” the military's media wing, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) quoted the army chief as saying on Thursday.

Gen Raheel made the statements while inaugurating a newly constructed building of Cadet College Spinkai in South Waziristan.

According to the ISPR, the college is one of the many institutions being built in the remote areas of FATA ‘to hone our bright children’.

'Any misadventure by enemy will be given fitting response'

Addressing the local tribesmen, the COAS paid tributes to the troops and valiant tribes for successfully fighting against terrorists. He said the international community acknowledged Pakistan’s contribution it the fight against terror.

Gen Raheel thanked the tribesmen for donating land to build the college, and expressed gratitude to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for financing the project.


Suarav | 5 years ago | Reply If he is planning to provide Madrasa kind of education, its a lost hope. Make them good human being by providing the lessons of love and compassion and that too from well educated teachers from pakistan or abroad. Remember, if the roots are shaking there is no point in expecting a strong building
