While talking to Khaleej Times Dr. Amjad Saqib told.

“We are establishing the first fee-free university in Pakistan where students will not have to pay any fee. This is some kind of long-term Qarz-e-Hasan. First you get education and pay after 5, 10 or 20 years, when you are able to return it; because remember that you got education but didn’t pay for it; but now when you have a job you can pay so that somebody else can also benefit”.

He added,

“Education is ultimate solution of our problems. We can’t progress and compete with international community unless we are ahead in education. But it is a pity that a boy coming from a poor family may be able to complete 10-year education but can’t receive higher education. We are not doing justice with our talent”.

As it’s the fee-free university all set to start its operation within a month will enroll 20 percent of students from each province of Pakistan.

Presently the building of the university is under construction with help of donations.

Akhuwat is already operational in Pakistan and offering the fee-free education to the students in Akhuwat College in Lahore and has more than 300 students enrolled from all the provinces of Pakistan.

In order to get admission in Akhuwat College astudent must obtain 75% marks in matriculation examination followed by an examination conducted at the college. The college is currently offering pre-engineering, pre-medical and ICT courses.
