Pakistani schools teach children about hating Hindus, Jews: Baloch activist tells UN

Geneva: Munir Mengal, the president of Baloch Voice Association, has alerted the United Nations that schools in Pakistan teach about hatred against Hindus and Jews to the students. 

While speaking at the UN Working Group on Durban Declaration and Plan of Action in Genava, Munir Mengal, the president of Baloch Voice Association was quoted as saying by ANI, "I used to go to a very high standard state-run Army school called Cadet College, the first lesson to us was Hindus are Kafirs, Jews are enemies of Islam both are liable to death for no other reason."

He added, "Even today the same is the first most important and basic message from uniformed Army teachers that we have to respect guns and bombs because we have to use these against Hindu mothers to kill them otherwise they will give birth to a Hindu child."

"This sort of hatred is being taught in Pakistani schools, madrassas at every level even today. And is a basic part of the education syllabus. Religious fanatics and terrorist groups have been declared and announced as state strategic assets," Munir told the UN Working Group.

He said the country's blasphemy law is being used to target the religious minorities.

"Similarly, Blasphemy Law is being used systematically to punish the highly vulnerable sects of the societies, particularly religious minorities, and is being used as a high tool for discrimination. Labeling someone with blasphemy, punishing the whole community, and extra-judicial killing the alleged person, the killing of anyone who spoke out against the misuse of Blasphemy Law are acts of heroism in Pakistan," said the Baloch activist.
