Update: The Punjab Education Department has ordered authorities to confiscate all material for the Lahore Grammar School's comparative religion course.

When a branch of Lahore Grammar School included a course on comparative religion, school officials may have not expected widespread controversy. But the criticism of some parents received national attention when popular Pakistani television host Mubasher Lucman discussed the course on his show.
