While aiming to provide quality education, the new education policy to be implemented in Pakistan next year will retain the subject of jihad in the school curriculum, a senior minister has said.
The government was using all available resources to promote quality education and had started working on the education reforms, Education Minister Javed Ashraf Qazi told reporters.
He said the subject of human rights would be included in the syllabus and the government had no plan to omit the subject of jihad from the Islamiat (moral studies).
“We will teach Islamiat from class one to twelve,” Pakistan Today quoted Qazi as saying.
