Pakistan’s Schools to Become More Islamic

The government of Pakistan acted on February 21, 1998, to make instruction in Islam compulsory in all schools. The new act was seen as the new government's most significant step in its goal of making Pakistan more Islamic. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif commented, "Pakistan was achieved to create a true Islamic society. It is my earnest desire to transform the educational system and bring it in line with Islamic ways."
