    Schools are the basic source where religion conversion strategies are applied, in schools they are forcing non-Muslim children to study Islamiat as a subject which is ethically wrong, a child who is totally unaware about another religion and practicing his/her own religion at home is forced in school to study Islamiat subject and when they ask questions to their parents they cannot reply them the child get confused. A non-Muslim child is not aware about the importance of Islamiat book and they are taking it as a normal subject book due to which teacher get anno.I suggest studying religion subjects must be removed from the school and all children living in stan must practice their religions at home and not in school. In school children are studying all subjects together but whenever religion cl starts Muslim children goes for Islamiat, Christian children goes for Christianity and Hindu children are either force to study Islamiat or in mostly Saints schools they are teaching Christianity subject which is known as religion. Few schools have introduced Hinduism and in few schools Christian and Hindu children are studying Ethics/Civics. We need to educate ourselves to make a successful stan which is also known as a stan of Quaid-e-Azam.
