But when it comes to women getting medical care from female doctors than that’s how it should be done in Islamic way.
Women are allowed to work in Islam but only with other women.
Remember even looking at women is not allowed in Islam the rest you can think logically.
The Taliban didn’t keep the the population uneducated, Afghanistan is a poor country and the economy is bust plus people hardly have the basics.
That’s the reason there’s hardly any facilities for education. You couldn’t have expected Taliban to build schools, colleges and universities while they themselves where busy fighting the shia Northern alliance.
The Islamic way to educate men and women is to make education institutes separate for men and women.

in further reply to sparky: you act as if Westerners are never violent are rise up in anger and rebellion. i don't want to get into a tit for tat on this, because it is a waste of time.
Christianity has a bloody past, both ancient & recent. They cannot claim the high ground either in my opinion. The same holds true for them.
; Christendom cannot claim the high road.
Rwandan Christians played in the swiftest and in some ways most brutal genocide of the 20th century.
Rwanda was the most heavily Christianized country in Africa. Some 90 percent of the people identified themselves as Christians. The Roman Catholic Church, to which 65 percent of the population belonged, played a huge role in Rwandan society. Christian churches, seminaries, schools and other institutions were sprinkled throughout the land.
And yet all of this Christianity did not prevent genocide, a genocide which leading church officials did little to resist, in which a large number of Christians participated, and in which, according to African Rights, more people "died in churches and parishes than anywhere else."
At least 500,000 Tutsis and thousands of moderate Hutus died in the genocide. Some estimates put the death toll between 800,000 and 1,000,000.
Alas more recent than past. Do not deceive yourself that it cannot happen again.
I agree that the vast majority of Muslims want peace. The main problem in my opinion is their religious leaders.
the fact is, all humans have violent tendencies given certain circumstances.
and kangjia is right, you simply cannot judge the whole of a group by the relative few militant, rabble rousers (that exist in any socio-economic strata).
it is a shame to judge people in that manner. people need to try and understand others through information exchange rather than acting superior - and hypocrical - to others.
