Pakistan's madrassas scrutinised

Government doubts religious schools but students say curriculum is mainstream.

    The Pakistani government is once again trying to reform the country's religious schools, locally known as madrassas.

    Critics argue that they have failed to teach students a wider curriculum, and have become a nursery for future extremists.

    But those who run the schools, and the students themselves, strongly disagree.
