PTB SEIZES GRADE 7 BOOK FOR PRINTING MALALA’S PICTURE:
In the last few days, the general public is in anger for the grade 7 book of social studies. Which is released by OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS (OUP), In this book the picture of MALALA YOUSAF is printed with the many famous personalities in Pakistan. This picture is printed on page 33 of this book. Following are the names of personalities,

- ALLAMA IQBAL
- SIR SYED AHMED KHAN
- LIAQAT ALI KHAN
- ABDUL STAR EIDHI
- BEGUM RANA LIAQUAT ALI KHAN
- MAJOR AZIZ BHATTI
This changes the sentiments of the public that they print MALALA’S picture right next to MAJOR AZIZ BHATTI who is the hero of Pakistan in the 1965 war.
The SINGLE NATIONAL CURRICULUM is facing opposition from the first day but after the release of this book of 7th grade, it gets very strong criticism. The major criticism came from the general public and the parents of children who get this book. They cannot accept the MALALA YOUSAF’s picture with their major heroes.
GOVERNMENT ACTION IN THIS SITUATION:
The government took strong action against this book and seized all the published books because of high pressure from the general public. Police, PTCB, and other law enforcement agencies took raids on many print shops of OUP and seized all of them.
There is news that OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS has no NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE (NOC) which is issued by PTCB before releasing a book. This book was given to the PUNJAN TEXTBOOK BOARD for review but PTCB reject this book for publication and did not issue the NOC. The PTCB said that in the last review they reject almost 200 books for publication and this book is one of them. Now govt. is going to make a penalty for all of the people who went against the Pakistan law.
BOOKS AGAINST TWO-NATION THEORY:
In the last few months, there are a lot of books that come for review in PTCB. But they reject almost two hundred books because it is against the two-nation theory of Pakistan. It is illegal to publish a book without a NOC certificate. Therefore govt. start to make raids on the press of OXFORD UNIVERSITY and stop the printing of this book. They stop this book of 7th grade because of the government criticism, parents criticism, general public criticism, agencies criticism on the 7th-grade book of social studies.
Some people said that there is a lot of mistakes in this book. They did not even write the correct dates of BIRTH our superheroes like QUAID E AZAM AND ALLAMA IQBAL in this book. It also writes a wrong number of cities in Punjab they write that there are 35 cities in Punjab instead of 36. There is a lot of illegal content write in this book which also causes a lot of criticism. We also keep updated our website with this kind of information on a daily basis.
