Addressing a news conference here on Thursday Senior Minister Inayatullah said Jamat-e-Islami had serious reservations what he called on the inclusion of such subjects in Text Books which were ultra- constitution and against the ideology of Pakistan.
He clarified that curriculum was finalized in 2006 under light of which subjects and it was agreed upon that Text books would be prepared in light that curriculum however later previous government subjects related to Khulafai Rashideen and Ummatul Momineen were replaced with Helen Killer and other subjects.
Similarly in Social Studies book four class four all subjects related to Khalifas were replaced with Ranjeet Singh saying that JI had no objection to teach Ranjeet Singh’s history but JI had suggested Ranjeet Singh should not be glorified.
Minister said there were other such mistakes in old books like Bangladesh secured independence from Pakistan which is against our history as Bangladesh was created through division of Pakistan.
Minister for education Atif Khan said PTI would not teach anything to the children that would be against Islam and our norms.
