A GLIMPSE OF WHAT IS BEING TAUGHT IN PAKISTANI SCHOOLS
1- “Hindus have always been enemy of Islam.”
(Urdu Class V, Punjab Textbook Board, Lahore, March 2002, p 108)
2- “The religion of the evil Hindus did not teach them good things — Hindus did not respect women”
(Social studies for Class IV, Punjab Textbook Board, Lahore, 2005, p 81)
3- “Hindus worship in temples which are very narrow, dark and dirty places, where they worship fake gods in idols. Only one person can enter the temple at a time. In our mosques, on the other hand, all Muslims can say their prayers together”

4- Islam is “superior” to all other religions.
(The Punjab Textbook Board’s Class III for ages 7-8).
5- “The Muslims ruled the Indian subcontinent for about thousand years with magnificence, but they did not forcibly convert a single Hindu. If they had willed, then today there wouldn’t even be a trace of them in the subcontinent. But Muslims showed great tolerance and even raised Hindu to high positions.”
(Class V book on Islamic Studies by the Punjab Board)

(Punjab Board’s Urdu textbook for “matriculates” ages 15-16).
