The Taliban is apparently concerned about its international image? Said a spokesman: “We will outline a new strategy to send a good message to the world.” Exactly, “a good message” — that is, words; will this message actually translate into reality by allowing girls a normal education?
“Taliban allows girls” education up to fourth level,” from The News, January 30:
SWAT: Taliban leader Maulana Fazalullah has said that he has given permission for girls” education up to fourth class.
In an interview with a British TV channel here on Friday, Fazalullah said: “He may lift ban on female education in Swat.”
“We will outline a new strategy to send a good message to the world,” he said.
To a question about destruction of schools, he alleged that security forces had also demolished some of the schools in the bleeding valley.
Taliban destroyed the educational institutions as security forces were using them as bunkers, he said.
