The education system in the country and in Jammu and Kashmir needs to be overhauled so that younger generation could learn about the bravery and valour of real heroes, said defence experts. 

They were speaking at a function in Jammu on Monday evening organized by Forum for Awareness of National Security, J&K and Indo-Israel Friendship Forum to commemorate the “valour and bravery of Indian soldiers in liberating Israeli town of Haifa”.

“Country is grappling with several challenges and problems. Most of these problems are originated with faulty education system, as we don’t teach students to become good citizens,” said former Director General of Police, Kuldeep Khooda.

“I had visited many countries and saw revolutionary school education there. They built traffic parks inside campus to aware students in kindergarten regarding traffic rules,” he said and adding, “People feel pride of their citizenship and following law in contrary Indian people takes pride in breaking laws. Other people put their nationalist first but in India religion come first, then community, sub-cast, area of origin, region, state and nation came last.”

“This is not fault of any individual, many factors behind this and one is faulty education system,” he said. “In other countries bravery story of armed forces are in school curriculums to instigate a sense of patriotism among youth but it’s not happening in India,”

“We introduced ethics as subject in higher education. There is a paper on ethics in civil services, which need to be teach form school days,” he said
