Comments on: Pakistani Taliban force girls’ schools to close http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/2009/01/17/pakistani-taliban-force-girls-schools-to-close/ Perspectives on Pakistan Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:31:05 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Joan http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/2009/01/17/pakistani-taliban-force-girls-schools-to-close/comment-page-1/#comment-13348 Tue, 24 Feb 2009 10:07:08 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/?p=1616#comment-13348 Anitha, you have a short memory or a limited knowledge of recent history. When the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan in the 1990s one of the very first things they did was close all girls schools by force, throw women out of the paid workforce, and take away even the meagre rights women had previously had. They made women completely dependent on men, unable to move about freely,invisible,and basically imprisoned in their homes. As a result there is a whole generation of uneducated females. Of course the Taliban are terrified of educated and independent females, or they would not have done these things. They are mysogynist neanderthals of the first order who cannot comprehend even the most basic human rights for females, let alone equal human rights with men. So why are you trying to say they are not responsible for the current campaign of forcible closure of schools? It is a central tenet of their ideology.

I cant understand this quite. We would rather make friends with China and Russia or some other country far away. Enlighten me friends without abusing me.Please

So stop making stories and come to reality, all your efforts to destroy Pakistans’ integrity have failed. Now your government have plan to gain some money through auction of things it purchased to show PAKISTAN involvement in mumbai incident.

truth is not what i say or you say. Truth is the deduction based on real evidences. Evidences point to elements based in pakistan (Miind it that not just Indian but US agencies are saying it). This has been shared with your govt and has been accepted by your govt. As per them they are doing the enquiry.Father of the captured terrorist has owned up his son. List is long. Use a good neutral reporting to learn more about it.

Don’t worry I will give you years to do so coz growing up and maturing takes years :-)

Well both cases had an enquiry, killer of Ghandhi was a member of RSS but does this means RSS killed him?

Rajiv ghandhi was killed by LTTE everyone knows that.

There were enquiries in both cases, but what is stopping you to enquire murder of benazir and gen zia, pak says that they will probe into mumbai attacks, why cant they investigate murder of own leaders. Why you are rushing to UN for benazir investigation.

By the way do you have any idea why and who killed murtaza bhutto ? Goe News still show the clipping banazir saying “I think some ISI officers killed murtaza”

Very rightious indignation ha ha!(Hey! you americans, we dont need foreignners in our borders!But in the meantime, let the foreingners inside our borders go about burning our schools and dictate policies to our pakistani government)Wow!what a people!.

And what about the person who planned the assasination of Rajeev Gandhi.

..tell me why picture of (so-called) terrorist was digitally processed to remove the wrist band (wear by almost 99% of indians I know)…

— This is the high stupidity of you and your intelligent nation.
If a man wears a Tazcat Cap and a women wears a burkha and kill few people in Pakistan or Kashmir, are we called Muslims? Have some sense.

…why india is not handing over the arrested terrorist to PAKISTAN…
— Pakistan seek Counselor Access to meet the Terrorist, why didn’t they came?
— Why didn’t Pakistan claimed the dead bodies of other 9 terrorists? Have some sense!

…I’ll give you time because i know that making stories take time……
— Thanks at least you had some sense to say this, however you must also take sometime to say such stories here.
