جامعات و مدارس کا تعلیمی نصاب:اسلام اور عصری تقاضے
Education plays a key role in any society. The educational institutions make societies and promote cultural values of society. A strong educational base in any country strengthens a nation. Curriculum of any country reflects the educational system of a country which is directly related to cultural values and norms of any society. Islam gives a clear and comprehensive guideline about the curriculum.
When the British took over the sub-continent, they not only replaced Persian language with English as a medium of instruction and modified syllabi as well. In this grave situation wherein the British prevailed as an authority over the Indian Muslims, the Muslim clergy set up a Madrassa with purely Islamic values in Deoband in order to safeguard the religious identity of the Muslims. Later Aligarh College was established that offered a fusion of English and Islamic studies. However, the dual educational set-up weakened the ethos of Muslims in the sub-continent. This article aims to review the dual educational system i.e. Madrassa system and mainstream university education systems prevalent in Pakistan.
