Islamia College Peshawer




I had done my F.Sc and Graduation from Islamia College Peshawer so prepared this mail remembering the golden days of my life in ISLAMIA COLLEGE PESHAWER
________________________________________________________________________________


Islamia College Peshawar was established in 1913 as a unique institution to educate the people of the province. These were the times when modern education used to be considered a great sin by the clergy; however, the founders of this unique institution were also unique and were so sincere with the people of this land that they laid down the foundation stone of this College at the hands of Haji Sahib of Turangzai who was leading the holy war (Jihad) against the British rulers. Even the British, being sympathetic with this institution or the people of the region didn't block the way of Haji Sahib because they knew that without Haji Sahib's involvement this institution will be a complete failure.

Well done, Islamia College Peshawar! You produced great graduates and stood unique for the last 95 years at undergraduate level but unfortunately when I look at you today, I cannot compare you with Government College Lahore of nearly the same age. Government College Lahore was not fortunate enough to have the blessing of Haji Sahib of Turangzai, nor Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum Khan was there to water its plants, no generous Pakhtuns gave it hundreds of acres of their lands and probably no Muhammad Ali Jinnah gave his one third of property to GC Lahore but still this great college produced Nobel Laureate like Abdus Salam. Yes, Government College Lahore you are unique but unfortunately Islamia College Peshawar could not be unique. It is at the same level as it was 95 years but education needs of the day have changed too much. Yesterday, we needed education but today we need research and that as well compatible with our modern-day needs. Let me shed some light on the reasons why Islamia College Peshawar could not be made unique instead of its enormous financial resources and blessings:
