Pakistani bishops’ conference: end anti-Christian approach in schools

Catholic World News - 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.
