IJT welcomes compulsory Quran teaching in universities


The Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) Pakistan has welcomed and expressed satisfaction over the decision of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) to make the teaching of the Quran compulsory for Muslim students in universities across the country.

IJT Nazim Shakeel Ahmad in a statement appreciated the decision of HEC and said he on behalf of IJT Pakistan welcomed the decision by HEC. He said that the entire student community will fully cooperate with HEC in the implementation of this decision, the decision is a true representation of Pakistan’s public.

Shakeel Ahmad went on to say that the promotion of Islamic ideology in the education system of the country, which was being achieved in the name of Islam, was a long-standing demand of the students and IJT specifically.

“A few days ago in the Senate of Pakistan, Senator Mushtaq Ahmad presented the bill regarding Islamic education, HEC has accepted it and issued formal orders on it, which is truly commendable”, he added.

It should be noted that under the decision of the HEC, special courses on Quran comprehension will be introduced at the university level, in which the participation of every Muslim student will be mandatory. Instructions have been issued to the vice-chancellors of universities to take steps in this regard.
