Illiteracy and Poverty are Our Greatest Enemies

Illiteracy and poverty are our biggest enemies. If we do not fight them today, they will make our country a living hell tomorrow.

Today’s out-of-school children are tomorrow’s voters, husbands, and fathers. Today’s poor people are contributors of tomorrow’s poor people; manifold.

We are ignoring these monsters for decades now, but illiteracy and poverty have already crippled our nation. Ignoring them further will only multiply the damage.

Where Did All the Criminals Come from?

Please understand this. Today’s murders, criminals, extremists, and terrorists were yesterday’s poor and illiterate children. Today’s poor and uneducated children will be tomorrow’s killers, criminals, extremists, and terrorists. There’s no doubt about it.

Please take responsibility for your country and nation. Remove poverty and illiteracy from it. You may argue that it’s the job of the government. But the government has always failed, and it will fail again too because it is corrupt.

The leaders, the ministers, will die in another 20 or 30 years. Most of us, you and I, are the ones who will live the future of this country and the world. We need to take responsibility to build that future right now.
