MULTAN-Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT), student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami, has claimed that the government has removed explanation of Aqeeda-e-Risalat and Khatam-e-Nubuwat from the syllabus of 9th class, hurling a warning to launch a country-wide protest drive if the amendment is not withdrawn.

Talking to the media here on Friday, Nazim IJT South Punjab Ch Abdul Rehman said that the students rejected the amendment which was done under a conspiracy. He alleged that the Punjab education minister and the textbook board are involved in this conspiracy, demanding immediate removal of the minister and strict action against book board officials.

He said that the amendment unveiled government’s love with Qadianis. “Faith in Khatm-e-Nubuwwat is integral part of our Iman and it cannot changed. The Punjab Government has done jugglery of words under a conspiracy which is highly condemnable,” he maintained. He asked the Chief Minister to take notice of this conspiracy and constitute an inquiry commission to look into this issue.

He warned that the IJT had defended Khatam-e-Nubuwat in 70s and it would do it again if needed. He said that educational syllabus played key role in building nations and recent changes have been carried out on directions of foreign masters. He declared that the students of Punjab would foil this conspiracy through their unity. He added that the IJT would contact all other student, labour, trader, political and religious parties on this issue and chalk out a joint line of action.
