Sufi had said in September that the curriculum would initially be introduced in schools across the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT), but the federal government had plans to work with provincial governments to add courses to their curriculum later.
He said PM Sharif had been pushing for animal welfare reforms through the unit and the move to introduce the course was a step in that direction. The PM's aide said he and Climate Change Minister Sherry Rehman were also working on an animal welfare law that would soon be tabled in parliament.
