MULTAN: Sewing clothes and teaching the Holy Quran to children did not prove to be a hurdle for two girls in Multan who secured top positions in BA examinations on Monday.

The top position holder, Tehmeena Jaleel, bore all expenses of her education by sewing clothes as her father was a postal office clerk in a sub-district of Multan. Bushra Amen, who secured the third position in BA, belongs to the rural area of Taunsa and would cover her education expenses by teaching the Holy Quran to children.

Jaleel belonged to Government College for Women, Jalalpur Peer Wala and secured 629 marks, while Amen from Government College for Women, Taunsa secured 621 marks. Saleha Khalil of Maimoona Post Graduate College came second in BA with 626 marks.

Give them all 1 million rupees each. Or better yet, improve the education system so that all the people who work at tandoors and tailors shops can afford to go to school and fulfill their talents, not just these people who are exceptionally driven.
