We shall strive to remove the unemployment and idleness of Ahmadi young men. Further the tendency of remaining as a clerk only due to lack of courage should be removed. Induce young men to adopt honorable professions in craft like blacksmith, tailor, carpenter, fitter etc. which have lost the dignity now-a-days.

Advice students to get education in technical institutes likewise, introduce professions in agriculture, poultry farming, fish farming, horticulture, to young farmers of villages. Induce those villages who do not have any work to do (In case where there is a small piece of land and more dependents in the house) to come out from their houses and do some job. Send a list of such jobless Khuddam with details about the education and technical skill to Regional/Qiadat Qaid, so that they can guide them properly to seek the job.
