Qatar has distinguished itself in the world with progress made in the education sector, long-time Doha resident Reenu Malhotra told Qatar Urdu Radio’s live show Haqeeqat yesterday.
“Whether it’s Qatar University, Ivy League universities at Qatar Foundation or the independent schools, the education system here is one of the best in world today,” she said.
Malhotra asserted that the robust education system helped facilitate Qatari students affected by the siege and they were able to resume
education here.
“Among the 140 Qatari students who could not return to their institutes in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE, 66 of them are now finishing their studies at Qatar University, and some in the Community College. The government is doing its best to facilitate every student and ensuring that their time is not wasted because of the siege.”
She added that while Qatari students were banned from returning to their institutes after the blockade start, Qatar took no such measures against anyone from the blockading countries.
“Whether it was the students from the blockading countries or people working in different sectors and organisations, Qatar did not tell anyone to leave and accommodated everyone as much as it could,” Malhotra, who has worked in Qatar’s education sector as well as media, said.
Haqeeqat, which aims to engage and interact with the large South Asian expatriate community in Qatar, is a joint venture of the Gulf Times and Qatar Media Corp Urdu Radio. The show is hosted by Saif-ur-Rehman. It is broadcast from Sunday to
