The Demise of Yaqeen Model School System

The future of approximately 3,800 students and 525 teaching and non-teaching staff of the Yaqeen Model School System (YMSS) are at stake, as the major school project is said to be in doldrums after the school chairman fled overseas. The YMSS offered O level and Matriculation-based education as well as Madressa [Hifz] schooling to the students and had earned a good reputation among the teachers, students, parents and other stake holders ever since it was launched in 1994 at Dhorajee and Tipu Sultan Road, Karachi. Later, YMSS expanded to nine operational branches. However, only three of the buildings were registered with the concerned authorities. Parents were paying Rs2,000 to Rs2,500 per month as tuition fees to the schools as well as Rs 20,000 security deposits at the time of admission.

Ummat headline about Yaqeen model School

Syed Husain - Chairman of Yaqeen Model School SystemAccording to media reports, School Chairman, former Adviser on Islamic Finance,Syed Muhammad Hussain has allegedly committed fraud at a large scale, did not pay a single rupee to the teachers and non-teaching staff for the past few months and has fled to Canada. It has also been reported (although not confirmed) that Syed Muhammad Hussain is seriously ill in Canada and could not return soon.

As no statement from the owner is available, it can be assumed that it might be a takeover attempt by employees done in his absence. Daily Ummat reported that some of the branches of school have been taken over by the administration and they had changed the School name. Like the branch located in Gulshan-e-Iqbal has now been renamed as “Hira School”.

One of the major stakeholders, Javed Masood, a businessman, has taken over a school situated in PECHS and another located in North Nazimabad. He had individually paid more than Rs6.2 million in lieu of dues to the teachers and non-teaching staff and also informed them that he would pay the remaining amount as soon as possible.

Mufti Muhammad Din, Imam of Bilal Mosque, located at Main Abul Hasan Ispahani Road and Principal of Quran School, Boys Section had said that he would also pay the dues in the future. He was hired on Rs50,000 per month salary to run the Quran School administration and now he had taken charge of the said branch on his own under the name ” Madressah tul Uloom”.

The owners of Dhorajee Campus, Muhammad Aamir and Imran, two brothers who run their businesses in Dubai, had hired Major Mehtab Alam and Commander Ghulam Abbas to look after the affairs of the school. Both retired army personnel were allegedly involved in cheating the YMSS in the past and now they have full control over the administration of the said campus. On July 16, when the then administration at YMSS fired all the staff without any intimation, Maj Alam came forward and asked the employees to agree on the handing over of four campuses to the existing administration and for their cooperation he would give them four months’ salary. Unfortunately, many people signed the deal but did not get any amount and their dues for the past three-four months are still not clear.

Jang report about Yaqeen model School

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Yaqeen Model School System (YMSS), Mirza Mustafa Zaheer, held a press conference last week at Karachi Press Club. He arrived along with his legal advisor Ali Nawaz and Javed Masood, owner of a YMSS campus located in North Nazimabad, to give his point of view over the current situation of YMSS. The CEO said that;

“Chairman YMSS Syed Muhammad Hussain has not left the country. He is in Canada for some medical reasons and he would definitely come back to take charge of his school system. Taking advantage of his (chairman’s) absence several former employees have illegally occupied some campuses”.

He further added that the school will re open from 10th of August and will be operational on wards but sadly it couldn’t happen.

As the whole situation is twisted and owner’s view point is not available the truth is still hidden. Here are some comments from the School staff and students responding to the news of YMSS downfall.

Committee constituted by Director of Private Institutions, Sindh, Mansoob Siddiqui to probe the Yaqeen Model School System (YMSS) matter has recommended that the head office of YMSS be sealed and all the bank transactions between YMSS and building owners be checked in order to verify the allegations levelled by the building owners. The government should arrest people currently working, or who had worked, in the top positions at YMSS to probe the matter and fix responsibility. Besides this, administrators should be given control of each campus of the schooling system so that students and teachers do not suffer anymore. The committee also found that Rs0.54 million were deposited in a local bank and the same were collected from students in lieu of security deposit at one campus only as reported by The News.

A legislation and code of conduct for the operational private schools and institutions is the need of time. There should be a check on the activities of administration and the amount which had been charged for educational services. Director of Private Institutions needs to be efficient in this regard and unregistered schools should be fined. To open a private school should be a hard nut to crack in future to avoid such frauds.

Chowrangi welcomes all students, parents, teachers and staff of Yaqeen Model School System to share their views on this issue. Government, especially Sindh Education Department is requested to play its role. It is vital to excavate the root cause and respond to the disaster that has been affecting the educational future of thousands of students.

  1. Ye ********* hain jo yaqeen ka kha kay yaqeen ko aur yaqeen k achay logo ko bura boltai hein. Aurto ko yaqeen say faida ho to ganday ilzamat , agar mardo ko faida hua to kia??? Sirf dimagh ka gundd hai logo ki. Jis jis nay bakwas ki hein wo khoob smjh rahay hongay parh kay, aur jo smjh rhein hein ye bhi smjh len kay ye dheel hai sirff jab maula ne lagaam khenchi to moun kay bal giren gey. Myafi mang len un logo sy jin pay bohtan lagaya hai aur allah sey bhi. Agar aik dafa pooch puchawwal shru ho jaye imran amir javed mufti kee to sab lag pata jaye ga. Meri appeal hai wazeer e taalim sy k insaf dilaya jaye.

    Blessing and salutation over our beloved Prophet Muhammad ,
    his household and Companions .

    Does nobody in Pakistan care ? .

    Does nobody read the Choerangi ?

    Why do people not re-act to
    appearances in Chowrangi ,
    a large number of people who were
    priviously fearless of Allah
    and the day of reckoning
    and were spinning lies
    and mis-information about me
    are hereby challenged to come out
    in open , with out alias and face me
    in the open ,with our Niqab or cover .

    They should produce evidence
    for their fase allegation
    or be condemed as per Surah Al Noor .

  3. With the name of Allah , the Most-Beneficent , the Most-Kind .
    Blessing and salutation over our beloved Prophet Muhammad
    his household and Companions .

    I am most grateful to my Lord , Allah Almigty ,
    who is the Welwisher of His creatures like me
    falsely accused by the most corrupt Urdu news paper ,
    Retired Major Mahtab Alam , Mufti Muhamad Deen
    and several other people involved in Qabza
    of various Yaqeen Brances hired by the Qabza group
    and most Corrupt Provincial Department of Education .

    Did the Government do anything about what was falsely
    reported and claimd in newspapers about me ? .
    Did the corrupt and lying Imam of Masjid Bilal rectified his
    conduct due to the fear of Allah , who will strictly hold us
    to account for our deeds , on the Day of Reckoning ? .
    Did all the people who I had helped , stood in my fagvour
    and told the truth ? Did any ex- employee of Yaqeen gained
    through double crossing or greed ?
    Is any body financially or otherwise better off today ? .
    Has anybody benefitted through greed ?
    Did anybody get rewarded fror believing the lies spun
    by Qabza Group , Retd Major Mahtab Alam and some
    ex employees of Yaqeen regardless of their pretended piety or
    pious appeareace — May Allah forgive us all .

    Was it not a major test and triasl from eacg one of us :

    The same Urdu daily who printed lies about myself and Yaqeen ,
    had also printed two large articles positively about me .

    Did I not fall seriously ill in Canada ?
    Did I amass a fortune or wealth from Yaqeen ?
    Or did I amass any wealth in Canada ?
    Or did I abscond to Canada with the Yaqeen’s
    or Parent’s money ?
    Did I not live in Journalist Colony ?
    Did my nieghbours or Mufti Muhammad Deen not know
    about my Character ? .

    Friends , there is still time to repent to Allah , to err is human
    and to forgive is divine . Please hurry to Allah to redeem
    yourself before it is too late .

    I do not know that who writer of this fact sheet about me is ?
    May Allah reward that person for the courage and telling
    the truth . and I do hope that more people will come fourth
    and redeem my honour by telling truth .

    Contrary to the false accusations in the said Urdu Paper ,
    was I ever held guity of any fraud or sought after
    by the Agencies ? did the malignment and
    misinformation campaign conductd maliciously
    by some people hurt me in any manner ?
    Did my Lord not stand by me and sustained me through
    out in Canada ?

    The perpetrators of this mis-informsation
    and false propaganda against me must know that
    they have caused me deep hurt , but for the sake of Allah
    I have forgiven al of them , they are not accountable
    provided that they repent to Allah , mend their ways
    and live the balance of their lives as practicing Muslims .
    ” OH Allah please forgive them and through your
    sheer Mercy ,admit them into your ever forgiving
    and charitable fold— Aameen .

    Did the false letters written by the msalicious people ,
    to the authorities in Canada taint me or destroy me
    in any manner ?

    The assets of Yaqeen Education Foundatiin
    a non-profit company and grabbed fearlessly for mere greed ,
    is it not fire in the throat of those people ,
    Insha Allah they will not prosper through it in Dunya or Akhira .
    But if they repent and seek forgiveness from Allah ,
    mend their ways while there is still time , Allah is ever forgiving .

    Does Major Mahtab and his corrupt colleagues sleep nights .

    If Brother Chishti is still alive , then Major Mahtab Alam should
    immediately consult and heed him , please !

    As the Partner of A.F ferguson & Co
    and Managing Director of Ferguson Associates
    ( A Pricewaterhouse Coopers firm ) and Senior Partner of Deloitte
    in Pakistan , did I not have opportunity to ammass more wealth ?

    As a Canadian Citizen did I not come to Pakistan to serve
    our Muslim Brothers and Sisters ? .

    Do we not recite Surah Al Noor to know about Allah’s Command in
    such situation as that suffered by me .

    Does Allah not change the condition of those who take steps
    to change it themselves .

    Do the events in Egypt , Tunisia , Libya , Yemen ana Bahrain ,
    not put fear of Allah in us and desire to change our condition ,
    before it is too late ?

    Case Presented to readers of Chowrangi .

  4. I was very close to Mr. Hussain, all i know about him is that Syed Mohammad Hussain is a Man of good caliber. Masha’ALLAH the most professional person to work with.

    He devoted his LIFE to Yaqeen. But one thing to accept by him is that he trusted those people who do not deserve to be.

    All the female staff members were excellent, but a few of them misguided Mr. Hussain.

    The senior oldies like Major Mehtab, Mr. Nazeer etc. misguided Mr. Hussain alot.

    Personally, I would give alot of best wishes to Mr. Hussain, who helped many of his employees personally to build their homes, for marriage etc. But he did not get any reward.


    Your sincere always.

    Hope you know who I am 🙂

    Love you Mr. Chairman.

    May I please request you to close this chapter . It is too painful .
    People have known me all my life , Al Hamdu Lillah I have always
    done good for every one , the same corrupt Urdu daily that carried
    false and fabricated news about me had also published articles about
    me .
    That is life Farkhunda , not one perdon stood up for me or challenged t
    he lies.

    I could write volumes abot Various people , but Allah is watching snd
    each one of us will be held toaccount before him .

  7. With the name of Allah , the Most-Beneficent , the Most-Kind .
    Blessing and salutation over our beloved Prophet Muhammad , his hou
    sehold and Companions .

    It was Major Mahtab Alam and the fraudulent Urdu daily that said that
    ” I had commited fraud before and the agencies were aster me ” of co
    rse it is false character assissination . But in corrupt Pakistan where
    Every thing is on sale it was said and not one person stood up to
    challenge the fabricated lies , Farkhunda tou want me to return to
    Pakistan that I love and I have proudly deedicated my youth to it !

    FS : Jazaak Allah for your kind words and sentiments .
    Let us close this discussion , with a statement , that I am too old and
    frail to undertake a journey back toPakistan . I wish all of you the best.
    For your information I only came back to Pakistan as a Partner of
    A.F Ferguson & Co , bacause I love Pakistan and I wanted to do something
    thing withmy own money .

    I am unable to return . People of Pakistan are humbly requested to realise
    ise the truth and the corruption that has seeped the very core of society
    y . I will not say any more .

    You have all my support in re-starting Yaqeen , Insha Allah a well intent
    ioned mission will continue . I hereby forgive every body and I do not
    hold any malice against any one .

    Please , please seek forgiveness from Allah who is ever forgiving .

  9. With the name of Allah , the Most-Beneficent , the Most-Kind .

    ousehold and Companions .

    May I Humbly invite the Imam Of Masjid Bilal to Publically repent his role in
    Qabza of Yaqeen and its demise . This is least expected from a Aalim Deen
    to repent to Allah for his greedy role .
