 Pakistani religious minorities are constitutionally facing challenges of equal citizenship, equal rights and equal opportunities. Due to religious persecution being minority their lives, beliefs, families and properties are always at risk. Pakistani education system has accelerated violence, intolerance, hatred and extremism through the language and images of the textbooks in general in the society and particularly against Pakistani non- Islamic religions and non-Muslims. PMTA is making efforts since 2004 for education reforms through advocacy, lobbying and analyses on the textbooks of Pakistan to promote diversity and peaceful coexistence. PMTA has a number of success stories in this regard.

Professor Anjum James Paul is continuously working on issues of minorities in Pakistan from years and approaching government of Pakistan respectively for solutions.

The major work performed by Professor Anjum is on text books in school and colleges of Pakistan where history is distorted and religion is targeted.
