Pakistan is a state funder of jihad terror, and aims to export its infamous blasphemy laws globally. Just recently, former Afghan President Hamid Karzai highlighted just how dangerous Pakistan is when he called out Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying that the Islamic State threat is from Pakistan, not Afghanistan. As evidence increasingly emerges about Pakistan’s support for jihad terror, now comes news that Lahore has “approved the appointment of 70,000 Arabic teachers for compulsory teaching” of the Quran “in all schools of the province.” Lahore is the capital of Punjab, the country’s second largest city (after Karachi), with a population of over 11 million. Lahore’s goal is further Islamization, as the country as a whole aims to advance the Sharia via violent jihad as well as Islamic indoctrination.
Last year, Lahore made Quran teaching compulsory in all its universities.
