Pakistani bishops’ conference: end anti-Christian approach in schools
CWN - May 30, 2013
The Pakistani bishops’ justice and peace commission has called upon Pakistan’s new prime minister to remove false and discriminatory statements against Christianity and other non-Muslim religions from textbooks used in the nation’s schools.
“This approach is visibly discriminatory against non-Muslim citizens of Pakistan,” said the commission’s executive director.
The commission also called upon Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to end the practice of requiring non-Muslim students to take courses in Islamic studies.
