Pakistan: Textbook change

Metroblogging Lahore reports that father of the nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah's messages to the nation have been replaced by messages from current President Pervez Musharraf and Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi in almost all the latest editions of books approved and published by the Punjab Textbook Board.

The Board chairman said the exclusion of Jinnah's messages was a human error and would be rectified soon.
