Pakistani authorities have sealed a total of eight Iranian schools operating illegally in Quetta.

Last week, authorities raided the Hazara Town neighborhood of the city where six Iranian schools were shut down.

On Monday, two further Iranian schools were sealed.

Senior officials informed Arab News that they had classified ten “illegal Iranian schools”, and shut down eight, saying the other two were also destined to meet the same end.

According to the Quetta Assistant Commissioner, Muhammad Zuhaib-ul-Haq, the schools were being ‘illegally’ run by Iranian citizens and where a foreign syllabus was being taught in violation of Pakistani law.

It is pertinent to note that the law enforcement agencies found textbooks at these schools which only concentrated on Iranian history, geography, and sociology, without giving any information to students on Pakistan.

It is unclear when the schools were built. According to the assistant commissioner, some of these schools were set up as early as 1983.

All the schools had 1992 “no objection” certificates on display, yet they had failed to enroll with the provincial home and education agencies.

The schools drew the attention of regional authorities five months ago and were required to register correctly.

The schools were given forms but their registration was rejected after they failed to meet the requirements.

“If you’re teaching in Pakistan, which is a sovereign country, you’ve to teach Pakistani syllabus,” the assistant commissioner remarked.

“It’s not possible to teach a foreign curriculum in a sovereign nation.”
