Dubai: In a surprise move, Governor of the Punjab Province of Pakistan Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar has made the teaching of the Quran with translation mandatory in all universities in the province.

Governor Sarwar has issued the notification on Sunday making it mandatory for all the students in the universities (except non-Muslims) to learn the Quran with Urdu translation. The notification states that a student will not be awarded a degree if he or she does not study the Quran — the holy book of Muslims — with the Urdu translation.

“We have decided to make it compuslory to for the university students to learning the Quran with translation. It is a unanimous decisions of vice-chancellors of all the univerities in the province,” Governor Sarwar tweeted in Urdu.




Notification
Governor Sarwar issued the notification in his capacity as the Chancellor of all the universities in the province. In Pakistan, Governor of a province also acts as Chancellor of universities in the province and has the authority to make decisions related to courses and regulations in any university in a province.

“Lecturers in all universities of Punjab will teach the Quran with translation to all students,” said the notification. It added that the holy Book would be taught in addition to Islamic studies, which is already being taught at universities.

Governor Sarwar said that success in the world and the hereafter can only be achieved through proper implementation on the guidelines of the Holy Quran, Geo TV reported.

According to the notification of the committee, the Quran course may have equivalent to one credit hour per year as the relevant university feels appropriate.

The notification says that the assessment of the Quran course must require each candidate to pass/fail. The student may be further assigned a grade as in any other credit subject, if University feels necessary/appropriate. ”As a substitute, the non-Muslim students may be offered the subject of Ethics.

Vice Chancellors agree
In April, the Punjab governor had formed a seven-member committee of vice-chancellors to submit recommendations on how to make the teaching of the Quran with translation compulsory in all universities in the province. All the vice-chancellors agreed to the proposal of the governor.

He told the media on Sunday that the learning of the Quran with translation has been made mandatory because the Book is a complete code of life and its better understanding with translation would help improve the lives of people.

Jamaat-e-Islami influence
Most universities in Punjab have great influence of students from Islami-Jamiat Talaba-- an Islamic students outfit of famus religious group Jamaat-e-Islami. It has been there long-standing demand to include Islamic studies and the Quran teachings in the univeristies.

In Pakistan, Muslims children start learning the Quran as they start attending the primary school. However, they are taught the Quran only in Arabic without translation.

"The Quran learning with translation should be made mandatory in the primary school instead of making the university students attend the Quran classes. It seems the Governor Punjab has taken the decision to win support of the Islamic groups which are quite strong in the province, said a top official.

So what will happen if they fail? What will be the marking criteria? Which scholar/sect's translation will be used? Will it be acceptable to all "Muslim" students?

Nothing will happen. It's a time waste in terms of the time and management allotted on campus. The students will read the Quran with translation, without a of standard interpretation, since everyone has different interpretations, professors will give questions like explain the oneness of God, and so on. All students will pass. What is the result? A confused mind.

A bunch of clean-shaven men in suits want to think they're being pious by forcing religion on a bunch of grown-*** people.

At this point, how many non Science subjects does a student learn for his doctory or engineering degree? I think half the credits are now probably from religious and social/history courses.

Also how is the Quran learning relevant to your science degree? One should really ask them.

Yes. And for your information all students from class 1 to 14 study a compulsory subject called Islamiat. Which also has Quran and ahadees with translation and tashreeh
Students grow up after that. If you can force Quran on people in University, you might as well also force Namaz on the rest of the awam.

So that Imran Khan feel pious and fulfilled for his fucked up bast*** past life. Nothing else to see here folks. Just Imran Khan trying to make up for his past life by using a whole nation lol

HEC doesn't have anything better to do? This should be in 1-10, not university. (I had mandatory Quran classes in Abu Dhabi).

Well I have found it funny to be honest. When Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar was an MP in the UK, he was claiming tax payers money on the interest of one of his second mortgages. Now he's suddenly become a pious momin. Pakistanis never cease to amaze me with their double standards.

Pakistan would be a better place if people would actually know what the Quran says. Most people just repeat and trust random green turban mullahs and their fairy tales about Islam. Islam doesn't contradict science, the first word the revelation to the Prophet (PBUH) was "IQRA" --> read! So we should read, learn and praise the Lord for the things he taught us!



I cannot stand the hate of the pseudo leftist wannabe-whitey elite against our religion. Mullah Madness is not Islam, being ignorant and uneducated is not Islam. You never ever tried to learn your religion by yourself and all you can do is say "But the Mullah said/did something stupid and my white masters will not approve that!!".

Knowing facts and having a degree is different from having an education. And who is the best educator than our Lord and the best being mankind ever saw (PBUH)?

Learn the religion and don't let the mullahs and other madman get you down!

Good news for India :)
Yes, you should fear a nation that knows the Quran by heart. You know like your ancestors loved being ruled by the mighty Muslims who brought civilizations to your superstitious land.
