“Rancour against India is officially promoted to infect young minds in Pakistani schools. This is the foundation on which terrorism has flourished”, writes former union minister Arif Mohammed Khan.
In Pakistan, terrorists are not dropped from the heaven nor they are created over nights. The Government of Pakistan creates them over the years. Pakistan’s policy, culture of hate towards India is the main reasons behind becoming terrorists of Pakistani youths. Education policy of Pakistan is playing a crucial role in creating this culture of hate towards India. Through their text books of History in schools, the Government of Pakistan coolly injecting hate in the young minds of their children right from their school level for the last few decades. Historical facts have been distorted and rewritten for this purposes. This hysteria (not History) is on for decades and all ( including educated class) have accepted these wrong policies of education in Pakistan.
Some of the excerpts from the textbooks for Pakistani students given below:
“Previously India was part of Pakistan.”
“The British began ….. in conjunction with Hindus, to greatly suppress Muslims.”
“Muhammad Ali (Jinnah) felt Hindus wanted to make Muslims slaves. As he hated slavery, he left Congress.”
“India with the help of Hindus living in East Pakistan, instigated people living there, and in Dec 1971, invaded ….. All of us should receive military training and be prepared to fight the enemy.”
The above excerpts shows how the history has been distorted to build their mindset and hatred towards India and Hindus.
This is how Government of Pakistan promotes the culture of hate towards India and terrorism in Pakistan has flourished over the years.
