Seminary rector sees ‘Taliban mentality’ in Pakistan

Catholic World News - July 30, 2014

The rector of a seminary in Lahore, Pakistan’s 2nd-largest city, sees a troubling “Taliban mentality” in society despite strong national support for anti-terrorist efforts.

“Many madrasas and mosques teach that non-Muslims are infidels, ‘kafir,’ feeding intolerance and violence,” Father Inayat Bernard said in an interview with the Fides news agency. “Even schools are experiencing strong prejudice against minorities in school curricula and textbooks.”

“In order to change this mentality, efforts of interreligious dialogue are urgent,” he added.
