9th Grade Religion and Ethical Culture textbooks
On page 16 of the 9th Grade Religion and Ethical Culture textbooks, prepared in 2006 by the Ministry of Education, everything must be done to prevent harmful movements from emerging that believe in reincarnation and Satanism that damage society.
The text associates Satanism with Christianity. It doesn’t specifically mention any religions that believe in reincarnation.
The text goes on to list the harmful effects of these beliefs on society — emotional depression, moral collapse, degeneration of the basic values of their society, battering of the social and cultural tissue, alienation from national and moral values.
It is a reflection, the text goes on, of types of beliefs in our social life that are not revealed by God, and the text quotes from the Quran in warning.
