THE importance of imparting true religious education to our children has again come to the fore with two shocking incidents in succession in the past few days. I sincerely believe that if our children are given proper religious education alongside regular curriculum, they can grown up as complete human beings and are not misdirected. In our country there are many parents who do not take religious education seriously as a result of which some children of these parents are easily misled by extremists. I think we should not waste any more time and give our children true religious education so that they can rise to the occasion and fight extremism, which are spreading fast and creating anarchy in our society. It is also high time that all political parties reached a consensus among themselves to lead people's participation in the struggle against militants. The religious leaders should also come forward and take a firm stance against all kinds of extremism. We must establish peace and justice in society and let our economy grow.
