“I am truly grateful to the school administration and in particular to the Hifiz department who continued online classes during the lockdown. It is because of the effort put forward by the teachers of Basharat that it is now called Hafiz-I-Koran. I hope he also excels in modern education by qualifying NEET after 12th place, ”he added.
