Integrating Madrassas with mainstream education

Walk down any street or pass by a mosque in Pakistan and you may not find it difficult to distinguish a madrassa student from an English medium school student.

Indulge in conversation with either and you will find different mind sets, each convinced by their particular schools of thought. Religious and class differences in Muslim society have raised high walls between some communities, eliminating communication, tolerance and understanding.

This documentary sheds light on religious and academic systems of education. Interviews with senior academics, religious scholars and students provide a fascinating insight into many of the educational challenges and issues facing Pakistan today. The film shows many committed professional people from all backgrounds working together on these issues.
