Honestly I am really unimpressed by the argument that modern education is the cure for all the maladies of Muslim World
Educational backwardness is only ONE of the symptoms of the main problem.
Modern education today, practically speaking is pure pursuit of better economics of life.
Educational institutions, with the most noble mission statements, merely manufacture the candidates for the corporate world, not society at large
Who cannot accept the fact Colleges are no more than hang-out clubs for its students, social status for parents and livelihood for teachers
And for the same reason, how can we expect world movers and shakers from these institutions whose candidates haven’t heard the word: social commitment

…and basic principles of a universal import directing the evolution of human society on a spiritual basis (IQBAL)
