O-Level Sociology Books with LGBTQ Content Ban in Pakistan


Federal Ministry of Education in Pakistan has banned various Cambridge textbooks, including the sociology books by Jonathan Blundell of Cambridge University Press and ‘The History and Culture of Pakistan’ by Nigel Kelly of Peck Publishing Limited and Danish Publishing Private Limited, due to their LGBTQ content and misrepresentation of the map of Pakistan. Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority PEIRA has prohibited the printing, publishing, distribution, and teaching of these books in educational institutes located in Islamabad. Private schools and colleges have been instructed to send an implementation report by May 10th as O-Level Cambridge Sociology Books with LGBTQ Content Ban in Pakistan.

The Federal Secretary of Education and Vocational Training stated that the Curriculum Wing did not issue No Objection Certificates for these textbooks due to their content being against the socio-cultural values of Pakistan. The sociology book includes content about same-sex marriage, which goes against Pakistans social and cultural values, while the other book contains a false political history of Pakistan and a misprinted map. PEIRA has provided a notification to the principals and chief executive officers of private educational institutes in the federal capital. Violators will face legal action under section 4 of the PEIRA Act.

The management of educational institutes must ensure that these banned books are not provided in their institutes. This ban applies to O-Level classes, and private schools and colleges must comply with these regulations.
