PESHAWAR: The parliamentary committee of the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) on Monday expressed concern over the education policy of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and demanded immediate change to the curriculum.
A meeting of the JI parliamentary committee was held at MPAs Hostel with provincial Minister for Local Government and Rural Development Inayatullah Khan in the chair.The meeting expressed concern that the matter of changing the curriculum was taken up on a number of occasions but the Education Department didn’t heed the matter.
The meeting asked the government to include all those chapters of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), his companions and other Muslim leaders in the textbooks that were removed by the previous coalition government of the Awami National Party and Pakistan People’s Party.
Though JI is a coalition partner of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), it has started criticising the policies of the PTI-led Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government. The party has also criticised the civil disobedience call made by PTI chief Imran Khan.
