Madressah students to be included in Naya Pakistan Youth Programme

Taking a truly revolutionary step forwards in the right direction.

Taking a truly revolutionary step forwards in the right direction; PTI leader and Special Assisstant to the PM on Youth Affairs; Usman Dar met with the Federal Minister for the Religious Affairs & Interfaith Harmony Noorul Haq Qadri, and announced the plans to include madressah students in the future Youth Programme.

There was further discussion to figure out measures to be taken by the government in order to bring these seminary students into the mainstream. Dar emphasized on how Imran Khan wants to include all young students studying in these seminaries into the framework of the Naya Pakistan he’s trying to create, in order for them to have brighter futures.

Furthermore, the government aims to provide these student’s families with interest-free loans, vocational training, medical facilities and even proper jobs, in order to give them the opportunity to compete with students who are enrolled in mainstream schools.

Dar called these seminaries the country’s ‘precious assets’ and focused on how their talents shouldn’t go to waste.

Qadri appreciated this initiative and lauded the PM for taking such a step for the madressah students, who had previously always been ignored.

This move also aligns with the party’s promise to “map out and register all seminaries across Pakistan” and “introduce literacy and mathematics teaching as formal subjects within the Madressah curriculum”.
