Personally, I think there is no need to retain quota system. I am not in favour of the quota system. Merit should come first in case of education. Nothing else should be considered in this respect. However, quota can be reserved for the disabled and the ethnic minority communities. Debate can be raised over the quota system reserved for the freedom fighters.
Is there no other way to give respect to the freedom fighters? The children of the freedom fighters will receive full free education, if required. The new generation of the freedom fighters can be advanced through providing any other privilege. Merit should take precedence over anything else. There is nothing to fog the issue.
In fact, the issue depends on our way of thinking- the way we want a solution. Of course, we should prioritize humanity without losing respect for our predecessors and we need to reach a solution immediately.
