TEHRAN (IQNA) – The governor of Pakistan’s Sindh province has written a letter to the Chief Minister of Sindh (CM), suggesting to introduce Quran teaching in educational institutions with translation.

Kamran Khan Tessori in his letter to Syed Murad Ali Shah said, “Alhamdulillah, Allah has blessed us with the Holy Quran which has been revealed for our guidance. His understanding and observation will pave the way for our salvation on the Day of Judgment.

The letter further stated that the Quran should be included as a compulsory subject in educational institutions with translation for Muslim students.

The Governor said that in this regard, the system devised by the Punjab Department of Education and the Federal Ministry of Education can also be seen.

He added that it should be started at primary level with the teaching of Nazra and Tajwid and then the same should be done at secondary and higher secondary level.

The governor said that the teaching of the Holy Quran would increase the value of our education system and to this end orders could be issued to the relevant institutions.
