Hamza Shahbaz maintained that the publication of books relating to class 09 of Islamiat and Seerat -e- Nabwi (SAW) will continue. He clarified that neither any letter has been issued on the part of our government nor the Islamiat of class 09 and Seerat-e-Nabwi (SAW) has been stopped.
It may be clarified that on 26th April 2022 Usman Buzdar was the Chief Minister of Punjab while Hamza Shahbaz took the oath of Chief Minister on 30th April adding that to link the letter with the present provincial government tantamount to distortion of facts.
