Christians in Pakistan have petitioned the Supreme Court to end discrimination against religious minorities in Pakistan’s educational system.
Specifically, the petition calls on the court to remove hate speech riddled through textbooks against Pakistan’s religious minorities. So far, provincial governments have failed to remove the hate speech, which has taught almost a generation of Pakistanis to distrust and hate religious minorities.
If the hate speech is removed and religious minorities are shown to be equal citizens in Pakistan’s educational system, it will be another step towards religious tolerance the country desperately needs.
