The Punjab Curriculum and Textbook Board (PCTB), a government body, also lodged a complaint with Lahore police for registration of a criminal case against the administration of the private schools and publishers of the books for committing a 'grave mistake'.
All the district executive officers of the province have been directed to confiscate all these books from the warehouse of the private schools.
"The books on social studies for Grade II, IV, V, VII and VIII have controversial/objectionable contents, especially with reference to the map of Pakistan" showing Kashmir part of India, the notification says.
To stop such mistakes in the future, the board says, "No person shall, except with the prior approval of the board, print, publish, sell or prescribe in an institution any textbook or supplementary material."
The notification also states that the board shall not approve printing, publication or sale in an institution of any textbook or supplementary material which contains anything repugnant to the injunctions of Islam or contrary to the integrity, defence or security of Pakistan or any part of Pakistan, public order or morality.
