Private schools in Lahore and across the country were forced to observe ‘I am Ehsanullah Ehsan Day’ on March 30 as part of the protests to condemn arrival of the Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan.
The directions were issued to thousands of schools by Kashif Mirza, president of All Pakistan Private Schools Federation. The association representing over 200,000 private schools asked the school teachers to wear black bands on their arms.
The association, along with the schools, will protest against the alleged anti-Pakistan and anti-Islam content written and promoted by the advocate for education.
The children at these schools will be given special lectures during Friday in which they will be taught to condemn Malala and her ideas and instead appreciate the progressive ideas of Ehsanullah Ehsan which give a good name to Pakistan.
