The Punjab government has made Quran education compulsory for students in grades I to XII in schools and colleges across the province.
According to a statement issued this week, students up to class V will get Naazrah Quran education, while the other classes will be taught Quran with translation.
Punjab Curriculum and Textbook Board (PCTB) stated that the teaching of the Holy Quran is compulsory for Muslim students in all public and private educational institutions, as well as madrassas, under the Punjab Compulsory Teaching of the Holy Quran Act, 2021.
Earlier this month, the PCTB mandated the teaching of Naazrah Quran as a separate mandatory subject for grades I to V.
Later, it was announced that the Holy Book will be taught as a separate compulsory subject in grades I to XII, and that it would be conveyed as soon as possible.
The Punjab Curriculum Textbook Board gave formal approval and issued a standard circular during its 83rd board meeting.
