No respect for the silver medalist – by Ali Taj

Silver medalist for BISE sat on the floor while the “bugers” enjoy comfortable seating

He is “Naveed Asif” from Nahranwali village Okara who scored 919 marks in matric and got second position in BISE Lahore. His school was 7 km away from his house he used to walk 7 km everyday to go to his school. Here are his words :
“I and my mother were really terrified when BISE Lahore team reached our home late at night before announcement of the result. You may think its ridiculous but I always said to my mother that I wanted to be like Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah,” he said. “Quaid-e-Azam is a role model for me.”
Unfortunately, all the seats were occupied during ceremony, besides, due to his ragged clothes and poverty, he wasn’t given the seat to sit, and so he sat on the stairs.
