Punjab bans dance at schools

March 13, 2018


LAHORE: The Punjab School Education Department (PSED) has placed a ban on dance performances by students in all government and private schools in the province, DawnNewsTV reported on Monday.

The ban extends to performances on occasions of prize distribution, parents’ day, teachers’ day and other events, PSED Chief Executive Officer Zahid Bashir Goraya told DawnNewsTV. He added that the education department would suspend the license of any school that allowed or forced children to dance at any school event.

Goraya said that the decision was taken after the department received complaints that children were being made to dance on Pakistani and Indian songs at school events. — Courtesy
