The Pakistani textbooks controversy refers to the reported inaccuracy of most Pakistani textbooks and the existence of historical revisionism in them. The content of Pakistan's official textbooks has often been criticised by several sources including many within Pakistan for sometimes promoting religious intolerance and Indophobia , leading to calls for curriculum reform.

The present study is an effort to probe ideological effects of textbooks on the minds of the young generation. It aims at exploring how textbooks are used in the propagation of various types of implicit and explicit ideologies to the readers and how their mindsets are shaped accordingly.

The issues related to power, hegemony, identity, political ideology, gender and class differences are very effectively presented through discourse of the textbooks. The twofold function of textbooks is manifested in our educational institutions.
