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

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.
