Teaching Intolerance

Intolerance is learned behavior; in Pakistan the states takes up this responsibility by using education as a means to uphold the notion of Islamic supremacy. This is an excerpt from textbooks highlighting the disdain that the Pakistani state feels for its minorities. By using equating Hindus to Indians it systemically engrains within student's minds that minorities are not to be trusted simply because they do not share the same faith. Ironic considering that a) it is also taught that Pakistan was made for the minorities (perhaps just Muslim minorities?) b) Currently, the government is rallying against Islamaphobia in the West in the name of minority rights but fails to see its own treatment of minorities.
