All university students in PAK will have to read Quran

The Pakistani government is not able to find any way to get the country out of the economic crisis. On the other hand, the government is trying to divert the attention of Pakistan. A proposal has been passed in its parliament after which Quran will be taught with translation in universities.
All course students must read it. This would mean that it would be mandatory for non-Muslim minority Hindus and students of other communities in the country to read the Quran. However, after studying the Quran, students will not have to take any exams for it. Nor will the students get any extra marks for this. The purpose of not giving marks and giving exemptions in exams is to motivate students to learn.
The Upper House of Parliament has passed another resolution. This new proposal has detailed information on how students studying at the university will be told about Prophet Mohammad. Both these resolutions were presented by Jamaat-e-Islami MP Mushtaq Ahmed. He says that both the proposals have been presented keeping in mind the rules of the constitution. The MP has opposed the bill in Parliament which is related to transgenders. He said that this bill is against the Quran.
On January 6, Home Minister Rana Sanaullah stated that the government has decided to recompile some verses of the original Quran. These verses written in Arabic will be translated.
A group of top UN independent human rights experts has expressed concern over the increasing incidents of kidnapping, forced marriage and conversion of minor girls and women from the minority community, especially Hindus, in Pakistan. On the other hand, according to a report, the condition of girls and women in Hindu and Christian communities has worsened.
The World Bank has also stamped on the bad condition of Pakistan. It is now the weakest economy in South Asia. On the other hand, US Congressman Andy Biggs has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives, seeking to end Pakistan's non-NATO ally status. The status of a non-NATO ally gives the US the benefits of greater defence supplies, and participation in collaborative defence research-development plans.
