Pakistan: School textbooks teach hatred of non-Muslims

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. As I explained here in connection with similar textbooks in Saudi Arabia, there is abundant material in the Qur’an and Sunnah to support this hatred.

“‘Hate content against religious minorities rampant in school textbooks across Pakistan,'” from ANI, October 25 (thanks to Lachlan):

Islamabad, Oct. 25 (ANI): Textbooks used in Pakistan’s schools include factual errors and hate content, which fuels the increasing levels of intolerance and extremism in the society, according to education experts.

According to the experts, the government, civil society, education experts and citizens need to contribute to a serious process of curriculum and textbook reform to help combat the growing levels of intolerance and violence towards minority groups in society, reports the Daily Times.

These views were presented by the experts during a discussion on curriculum development and textbook reform in Pakistan, organised by the Jinnah Institute in collaboration with the National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP) in Islamabad.

“We need to find a balance between civil society and government initiatives so that important and innovative solutions to curriculum-related issues can be implemented,” said Raza Rumi, Director of Policy and Programmes at the Jinnah Institute.

Peter Jacob, NCJP Executive Director, said such material not only negatively impacts the minds of the majority Muslim students, but also harms the education and growth of non-Muslim students. (ANI)

    I’m sure school textbooks teach hate in other equally poor* nations, like Haiti…right?

    *For this fantasy to not be challenged with critical thinking, Saudi Arabia and certain schools in Britain must be thought of as dirt poor.

    Harms only the education and growth of non-Muslim students?

    The poisoned Muslim mindset vis-a-vis non-Muslims results in bullying, intimidation, discrimination, assault, kidnapping, murder, violence, etc. Isn’t that harmful, too?

    I am personally preparing a “Hate Speech” that I will be delivering in front of the White House early next week and posting to youtube. It will be based on a couple of verses in the Bible … 1st John 3:13 and Romans 12:9.

    I wouldn’t mind betting that every Islamically-produced textbook in every other Islamic school all over the world – including all those within ‘the West’ and in other non-Islamic regions – teaches the same kind of ‘factual errors and hate content’ as these textbooks in Pakistan.
