A amicable studies content book now being used in many private schools in Islamabad labels Azad Jammu and Kashmir as ‘Pakistan Occupied Kashmir’.

Chapter 7 of a Social Studies for Pakistan; An integrated Course of Environment and Social Studies, Book 5 starts with a thoroughfare saying “Pakistan has 4 provinces, namely, Sindh, Balochistan, Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. Other executive groups embody Islamabad Capital Territory, Gilgit-Baltistan (formally famous as Northern Areas), Federally Administered Tribal Areas (a semi-autonomous genealogical segment in a northwest) and Azad Kashmir (Pakistan assigned area of Jammu and Kashmir).”

“The tenure is Pakistan assigned area of Jammu and Kashmir as highlighted in a content book, can simply mess-up immature Pakistani minds,” pronounced PPP Senator Sehar Kamran, who filed a job courtesy notice with a Senate secretariat seeking courtesy of a Capital Administration and Development Division (CAAD) on a issue.

The fifth class text in doubt is accessible in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Sukkur, Faisalabad, Peshawar and Abbotabad, according to publisher Paramount Books (Pvt) Ltd. It is probable private schools in these cities have ascribed it too.

The book, in that same thoroughfare that falls on page 65, mentions other regions as ‘divisions’, a significant anomaly.  It describes Fata as one segment when it in fact comprises 7 agencies and 6 limit regions.

AJK is not usually described as Pakistan assigned Jammu and Kashmir though also as ‘Azad Kashmir’. The state is strictly called Azad Jammu and Kashmir given many tools of it were partial of Jammu before partition.

Senator Sehar, herself an educationist originally, claims there are several other mistakes not usually in this book, though many other texts being taught in both supervision and private schools. She wants a supervision to set adult a physique to examination a whole curriculum being taught in preparation institutions opposite a nation to inform it of vivid mistakes.
