Human rights: global issue

THIS is apropos of Munir Mehboob’s letter ‘Teaching of Pakistan Studies’ (Feb 9). As far as the study of Pakistan is concerned, the topic of human rights can’t be a part of Pakistan Studies.

This is a global issue. Rather, it can be a part of social studies where issues like poverty, human rights and gender can be taught in the context of Pakistan.

Furthermore, topics like economy of Pakistan and political education should be encompassed in the curriculum that could be beneficial for students.
