HARIPUR: Prime Min­is­ter (PM) Im­ran Khan has said if western peo­ple can be­come sci­en­tists then why not we .

“Colo­nial­ism is dis­as­trous for a na­tion and due to it we have lost our con­fi­dence. If western peo­ple can be­come sci­en­tists then why we can not. We have to get rid of mind­set of good slav­ery. We are in­de­pen­dent peo­ple and are com­mit­ted to do some­thing. We are think­ing of en­act­ing leg­is­la­tion to spend the money on ed­u­ca­tion af­ter re­cov­er­ing it from the cor­rupt el­e­ments”, PM said this while ad­dress­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony of Pak-Aus­tria Fach­hochschule Univer­sity In Haripur.

He stressed one should place more fo­cus on one’s work in­stead of prais­ing one’s deeds.

He held com­mu­nism is dis­as­ter for the na­tions and this im­pres­sion that only West can de­velop and we can not is wrong. We will have to change the mind set of slav­ery of West. We can­not do any thing be­cause we copy. If the Western peo­ple can be­come sci­en­tists then why not our peo­ple. He pointed out ra­tio of pop­u­la­tion of youths in

Pak­istan is higher and devel­op­ment is too pos­si­ble. We should seek help from big data, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, en­gi­neer­ing and food tech­nol­ogy.

He urged Pak­istan should tread on the way which was en­vi­sioned by Quaid-e-Azam and Al­lama Iqbal. We have to make such Pak­istan about which they used to talk to.

Cit­ing to im­pacts of colo­nial­ism on the mind he said when he went out to play in­ter­na­tional cricket for the first time the se­nior play­ers said to me it is our suc­cess if we lose the game to the Bri­tons re­spectably.
