To study Science is only a social duty (farz-e-kafaya) and not a personal duty (farz-e-ain). Today even from centers of religious education one is hearing such statements that promote acquisition of worldly sciences to the level of personal duty. Nobody is forbidding the modern education but people's priorities should be right. Acquire modern education but keep religion on priority.
