The price of an education
MINGORA, Jan 19: Suspected militants blew up five government schools in Swat on Monday.[…]
Swat District Coordination Officer Shaukat Khan Yousafzai said 182 schools, most of them for girls, had been destroyed by militants, affecting over 100,000 primary- to college-level students[…]
He said one could understand the reason for which the militants were attacking security forces but destruction of schools by them could not be justified.
Actually, the logic of the “militants” is quite consistent: just as the government is not fully implementing sharia law (and thus must be overthrown), so are females in school alien to sharia (and thus must be prevented).
