Taliban execute teacher in front of his pupils for educating girls
By Tom Coghlan in Kabul
Taliban insurgents in southern Afghanistan have executed a school teacher in front of his pupils for refusing to comply with warnings to stop educating girls.
The attack took place on Thursday at a secondary school in Nadi Ali district, Helmand province, the scene of many Taliban attacks in recent months, according to the police, who learned of the incident yesterday.
About 4,000 British troops will be deployed to the province in April to combat an increasingly confident insurgency.
Pupils at the school said two armed men arrived by motorcycle. "They dragged the teacher from the classroom and shot him at the school gate," said Abdul Rahman Sabir, Helmand's police chief.
"He had received many warning letters from the Taliban to stop teaching, but he continued to do so happily and honestly - he liked to teach boys and girls." He identified the teacher by the single name of Laghmani.
Under the Taliban interpretation of Islamic Sharia law female education was banned, along with female employment. Since the overthrow of the Taliban government by the US-led invasion of 2001, the Afghan government claims six million Afghan children have returned to school, many of them girls.
However, Taliban insurgents in the south have repeatedly targeted schools, burning many to the ground at night or issuing beatings or warnings to teachers.
Time to burn a few more bodies without cameras around.
It's amazing someone reported this.
Pardon me for stating the obvious, but it appears that April may be a little late.
No, they are not.
They are animals.
They are vermin that make absolutely no contributions to mankind.
They need to be EXTERMINATED.
Religion of Peace update.
Yet to the femin*zi crowd in this country, it is Bush and conservatives who are the real threat to women.
EXACTLY....the use of the word "insurgent" by the MSM is so disgusting...
Micheal Moore's freedom fighters are at it again.
And a few taunts.
Nah, just burn the guy with the camera at the same time. After all, they are as guilty as the Taliban for this stuff.
A house that is built on bullsh!t is sure to start stinking.
NAGS - NOW - what pure crap.
The feminist in the US see no problem.
Just remember that the Democrats would gladly turn over the reins to the United States to them if it would get rid of President Bush.
Gee Just today a liberal "educated" me about the dysfunction of Christian societies.
Well if we find any of these murderous scum, don't forget to be nicey nicey with them, give them a good lawyer, say Ramsey Clark, and read them their rights, and so on and so forth. This is the new world order as passed by our esteem elite inside the Beltway who would not know a terrorist if he came up and blew up his satchel.
