Students react to Shafqat Mahmood telling schools to open 5 days a week


Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood has ‘broken’ the hearts of millions of Pakistani students after he announced that schools have been allowed to resume five-day classes from March 1 onwards.

The minister, perhaps the most closely-followed individual on Pakistani Twitter in the age of coronavirus-imposed school lockdowns, on Thursday signaled a return to business as usual after almost a year of closures or sketchy operations.

Following the announcement, the Shafqat Mahmood Twitter fan club responded with what it does best: hilarious memes.
