Dr. Zakria ZakarWritten by Valerie Alker
Florida Gulf Coast University is hosting a Fulbright Scholar this month who hails from Pakistan. Dr. Muhammad Zakria Zakar is in Southwest Florida thanks to a U.S. State Department Program called “Direct Access to the Muslim World”. He’s giving a series of lectures on the role of Madrassa, or religious schools, in Pakistan. WGCU’s Valerie Alker sat in on one of his classroom sessions and prepared this report.
