The Punjab government has recently removed some of the topics from the syllabus of a book which was being thought in a private school of the province. The book contained the topics of Reproductive health, sex and physical change in the body. These topics are now removed from the book due to which a huge discussion has again raised within the governmental level on from what age children should be educated on such topics.
Nazo Peerzada who is a female activist and a senior trainer in a non-governmental organization “Aahang” is giving sex education to children from age 16 in the interior Sindh. She says that in English while we use the word sex we doesn’t feel anything but when we translate the same thing and use it in Urdu it looks wired to us.
She also added that due to lack of sex education among the youth of Pakistan they are facing problems such as self-esteem. She further said that sex is our natural recognition and there is nothing bad to educate children about their recognition.
Rana Mashood the education minister of Punjab has said that there is no doubt that sex education is necessary. But to educate children about sex in detail in such a low age will create a negative impact on them.
