Under the initiative, the Madrassa students would provide career opportunities in all national institutions including civil and armed forces. The sources said that the new curriculum will bring major reforms in ‘Madrassa Schooling System' as it was being prepared according to the international standard and meet all modern global needs. They said the seminaries played a key role in providing education to the deprived segment of the society.  To bring interfaith harmony in the country; the non-Muslim students were being taught their religion in schools. Earlier, they were only being taught the subject of ethics compared to Muslim students who were being studied Islamic Studies, they added. As per agreement with government, sources said, all Madrassa's were bound to register themselves with the education ministry as no seminary would be allowed to function without registration. The Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training has established country-wide 12 Registration Centres for registering seminaries.
