(Worthy News) - Christians leaders have petitioned Pakistan's supreme court to end its discrimination against minorities in the nation's educational system.

According to Christian Today, the petition called for a new curriculum to promote religious and social tolerance in schools and universities.

"Students belonging to religious minorities are required to learn the religious lessons of Islam and pass examinations that may conflict with their religious beliefs....," read the petition. "It is also a form of coercion that students belonging to religious minorities cannot study their religion under the current education system."

The petition also asked the court to protect the rights of religious minorities while they are in the provincial educational system.
