Observer on Saturday - - News -

usa Hlophe of the Swazi­land Jus­tice and Peace In­sti­tute also de­cried the gov­ern­ment’s pro­nounce­ment on forc­ing schools to only em­brace Chris­tian­ity.

Hlophe said such is against the spirit of the con­sti­tu­tion of the land and fur­ther thanked the press for hav­ing high­lighted the is­sue to the masses.

Hlophe said if the coun­try has ac­cepted Is­lam and other re­li­gious na­tion­als and the con­sti­tu­tion al­lowed for free­dom of re­li­gion, it can­not af­ford to sup­press the mi­nor­ity re­li­gion which also in­cludes the African re­li­gion as it has been prac­ticed even be­fore Chris­tian­ity was

Mbrought into the coun­try.

The con­fer­ence will open a plat­form for dis­cus­sions on the is­sue of in­ter-re­li­gious con­ver­sa­tion for the sake of peace as gift of the King.
