    Title: Regarding school book syllabus

    Question: I want to open an English medium school with Islamic ideology. Now it is almost impossible to get school books which contain no images of human, animals, birds, etc. Can we teach our students such books?

    You should get syllabus books designed free from living pictures according to Islamic principles as per your capacity and teach those books to the children. As for the books about which you have no authority rather it is mandatory to teach the books specified by the concerned board then it is allowed to teach them due to compulsion.
