Even though it is the peculiarity of the culture and practice which makes the area different from other locality nearby college, it also poses an obstacle in advocating such programs. Their cultural exclusiveness and reluctance to embrace external practices into the community is a threat to the practice. The lack of interest to imbibe new matters into society is another problem that caused a threat.
