(PAKISTAN) JUST IN: PM Imran Khan is Islamising countries school curriculum as the current curriculum already contains bigoted and hateful material and makes derogatory references to various religious minority communities #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.01: Critics also claim that the recent move to radicalize the education system will only further embolden radicals to oppress Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and other religious minorities.”

PAKISTAN: ‘Imran Khan to Islamize school curriculum, denigrating Christians, Jews and Hindus Prime Minister Curriculum,” International Christian Concern, May 24, 2021: Yet the current curriculum does not represent Islam enough, at least not according to Khan’

Khan, despite the contempt and hatred for minorities that he is now hammering into Pakistani children, is one of the loudest voices globally in advancing the “Islamophobia” canard. Christians already suffer under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. Conditions will worsen for Christians and all minorities with the implementation of this new curriculum.

05/24/2021 Pakistan (International Christian Concern) – Prime Minister Imran Khan and his team are preparing to implement a new national curriculum in Pakistan that will Islamize the education system through an emphasis on the Quran and Islamic teaching. The new curriculum will force students to read the entire Quran and memorize a number of prayers and hadith. Schools must also employ a pair of Hafiz, or individuals who have memorized the Quran.

Critics believe that the move will create deeper fault lines within an already-divided population. Religious communities in Pakistan have deep distrust of each other as it is. Pakistan’s religious minorities are regularly persecuted, including by the country’s blasphemy law which is one of the severest in the world. Punishments for blasphemy range from life in prison to the death penalty.

Current Pakistani curriculum already contains bigoted and hateful material and makes derogatory references to various religious minority communities in Pakistan. Critics also claim that the recent move to radicalize the education system will only further embolden radicals to oppress Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and other religious minorities.

The Prime Minister’s ill-conceived move comes at a time when Pakistan is facing increasing scrutiny of their dismal human rights record…..

` US Army Denies Two Soldiers Right to Dress and Groom themselves according to their Religious Beliefs ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – April 29 (Reuters) – The U.S. Army has denied requests by two soldiers to dress and groom themselves according to their religious beliefs under a revised Pentagon policy, a spokesman said on Monday.

The policy approved on January 22 was mainly expected to affect Sikhs, Muslims, Jews and other groups that wear beards, long hair or articles of clothing such as turbans and yarmulkes. It also could affect Wiccans and others who obtain tattoos for religious reasons.

Under the guidelines, the military service branches were encouraged to allow people to dress according to religious custom so long as it did not interfere with good order and discipline within their units.

But the policy has been criticized by lawmakers and members of the affected religious groups, who say the Defence Department is still setting a hurdle essentially prohibiting some people from joining the service.

Lieutenant Colonel Justin Platt, an Army spokesman, said only two soldiers had requested a waiver to the uniform policy for religious purposes since the new policy went into effect.

Both were denied.

He was unable to identify the religious group of the two soldiers.

The exact timing of the decisions was not clear.

Platt noted that under the policy, local commanders can approve accommodations for worship practices and dietary requirements, but requests that would require a waiver of uniform policy had to be authorized by a senior officer.

The U.S. military’s approach has not always presented such a hurdle. The first Sikh in the U.S. Army is believed to have been Bagat Singh Thind, who joined up in the First World War. Photos show him with turban and beard in a large group of bare-headed troopers at Camp Lewis, Washington, in 1918.

Since then, several dozen observant Sikhs have served in the U.S. Army, Navy or Air Force, with the peak coming between the 1960’s and 1980’s, according to Amandeep Sidhu, an attorney with McDermott Will & Emery, who has worked with the Sikh Coalition.

Concerned about lax discipline in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, the Pentagon revised its policies in the 1980’s to strengthen the military with more strict uniformity, Sidhu said.

Sikhs already in the military, including a doctor and a dentist, were allowed to continue to wear their turbans, hair and beards, but the stiffer regulations acted as a virtual roadblock to younger Sikhs trying to enter the service.

In 2009, Kalsi and a Sikh dentist being trained under an Army assistance program approached the Sikh Coalition seeking help to obtain religious accommodations.

Between 2012 and 2014, the officer in charge of the process has approved six exceptions to the Army uniform policy and rejected five.
