Pakistan Election 2013 l The privileged Pakistan


The students occupied the hall in silence and dressed in pristine shape with a white kamiz shawal and red tape put over the shoulder. On the stage a group of parents following the ceremony visibly moved. Their daughters have been chosen to play a role in the school over the next year : school leaders, captains of games, captains of discipline, theater prefect responsible for ring the bell at the end of recess ... Any liability, however small it may seem, is given a full solemnity, with the students taking the stage with martial step and swearing with uplifted hand to carry out the task entrusted to them. The choice has been made ​​democratically. The rest of the students have voted. In the country where the young Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban for wanting to study, there are also girls who go to school and receive an exemplary education that has nothing to envy to the best schools in any western country. "This is also Pakistan," said the Spanish religious Pilar Vila-San-Juan, who heads the Jesus and Mary College in the city of Lahore, in eastern Pakistan, and shows a certain annoyance that the media only we talk about how bad the country. "In this school there are Muslim and Christian, rich and poor, boys and girls. All juntitos scrambled, because tolerance is to live together and respect" he says. Although the Jesus and Mary is a Christian school in a country that believes fervently Islamic annually receives more than five hundred applications for registration for a hundred places available. Pets to all Christian girls and the best Muslim, those with higher notes, successfully pass entrance exams, and have open minded parents. "Because it makes no sense that someone who supports his father after not going to let you do gymnastics, or sit next to a Christian," says Sister Pilar, which is a somewhat peculiar nun. "I got a nun at age 23, after working for a long time as a hostess. Till I got tired and said, 'I'm no good to anyone but God!'" He explains. Since then carries the religious habit, who never removes. Whether in or out of school. In Pakistan women wear veils . She, coif.However, parents of the students treat it as if almost out God. He has earned their respect and leads the college at bay. Teach girls and girls academic content, but also to be people. And to say "hello". Thus, in Spanish. The origins of Jesus and Mary School date back to colonial times, when French nuns opened the first schools in 1856, which basically studying the daughters of British families. In Pakistan there are eight such schools, which offer courses approved by the University of Cambridge. In Lahore College classes are in English and Urdu, the official language of Pakistan.There are children up to ten years. And the nun Pilar has promoted the opening of special education classrooms that do not exist in any other part of the city and, as she says, are his great passion. The students are charged according to your family's financial capacity. Coinciding with the campaign for tomorrow's parliamentary elections in Pakistan, a group of organizations and individuals, named and Alif Ailaan-has launched a campaign with the question: "What will our politicians for education?". Have posted ads on billboards and newspapers, and have created a website where any Pakistani can send an email to the candidates on their electoral interrogating their educational plans. The group believes that Pakistan Alif Ailaan lives an "educational emergency", as the literacy rate among 15 to 24 years old is 56%. The Government allocates only 2.4% of gross domestic product on education. In Jesus and Mary colleges have formed the daughters of the most famous politicians of the country . There he studied the very Benazir Bhutto, the niece of General Musharraf, all Irman Khan sisters former cricketer who is emerging as one of the favorite candidates, and the daughter of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. "It was terrible. Did not study anything," said Pilar, who was his guardian. Now need that education they want for their daughters as well be for all children in the country.
