One nation one syllabus

The curriculum taught in Pakistani schools, especially over the last few decades, have been criticised for being exclusivist and helping promote rigidity and intolerance In fact, it would not be wrong to point out that more than the material taught in many Madressah, it is the content of public school textbooks that has contributed largely to the acceptance or condoning of terrorism by a large section of the population.
