Inside the Pakistani madrasa

Madrasas provide free religious education, boarding and lodging and are essentially schools for the poor. Over 2.5 million children are studying in 30,000 madrassas across the Pakistan. It can be a secular, vocational, religious or technical school. In general, however, madrassas offer religious-based instruction focusing on the Quran and Islamic texts at both the primary and secondary levels.
