Islamic syllabus to be change

A director of the Muslim Religious Affairs yesterday said the relevant authorities should consider amending certain facts and teaching standards in the current Islamic curriculum.

Muslim Religious and Cultural Affairs Director Adam Bawa Mohammed Ashroff testifying before the PCoI probing Easter Sunday attacks, said the department had already appointed a committee to suggest amendments to the Islamic syllabus and the Department will provide those suggestions to the Education Ministry.

“The Department doesn’t have a legal power to amend the Islamic curriculum. The Education Department or the Ministry has the authority to make such amendments,” he said.

Mr. Ashroff said they are trying to develop a critical thinking pattern along with Islamic curriculum similar to other countries.
