MARDAN: An IT expert, Waleed Ahmad Khan, said on Wednesday that they were launching online e-commerce courses for children in which students would be educated according to the demands of the modern era in light of Quranic teachings.
Addressing a press conference at the Mardan Press Club, he said it was time to educate young people about Islamic teachings and modern sciences so that they can become productive citizens of society.
“We have launched an online school to teach economics and we are also trying to attract the younger generation to positive use of social media,” he added.
He said that developed countries were living a prosperous life by following the teachings of Islam and the Holy Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) but unfortunately Muslims have abandoned their religious teachings and as a result they are in decline.
