Supreme Court of Pakistan


The state has failed to perform its constitutional responsibility of dispensing free quality education to Pakistani children, Supreme Court Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said on Monday.

While conducting hearing into various cases related to the increase of fees by private education institutions, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Khosa commented that it was the prime responsibility of state to provide free education to all. However, the state failed in performing its duties and the void created was filled by others administering the education sector.
