Taliban Fear Girls Who Can Read

pakitalibgirls.JPGBecause what if a girl could read the Koran for herself, bypassing the BS the Taliban feeds her?

GHALANAI, Pakistan — The classroom in Ghalanai, an area nestled amid the mountains of Pakistan’s tribal belt, has the air of a military camp: a solitary tent pitched beside a bombed-out building, ringed by a high wall and protected by an armed gunman.

“We need to assure parents that it’s safe,” said Noor Haider, a local tribal leader who took on school security after Taliban militants bombed the school three years ago.

Well then the jig would be up now wouldn't it, that's why the Taliban seeks to keep women ignorant.

Hat Tip: IntelWire.
