PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AFP) – The Taliban blew up a girls' school in Pakistan's Khyber district, where troops are fighting against militants in the tribal region bordering Afghanistan, an official said Wednesday.
Militants detonated explosives overnight at the government-run school in Bazgarah town, about 40 kilometres (25 miles) west of Peshawar, capital of the violence-plagued North West Frontier Province.
"The building had 21 rooms. All have been completely demolished," local administration chief Shafeerullah Wazir told AFP by telephone.



"This was the ninth educational institution blown up in Khyber over the past six weeks," he added.
Islamist militants opposed to co-education and subscribers to sharia law have destroyed hundreds of schools, mostly for girls, in northwest Pakistan in recent years.

The reasoning is clear.

Educated people question those who try to be religious dictators/terrorists.

Also, the taliban has been blowing up schools long before the Pakistan army started rooting out the murdering terrorists.

Vile scum.

If they wish to live a backwards, idiotic life of hatred then let them... but they have no right to hurt those who seek education and a better life.

Remember guys if its on the news, it must be true.

This is somewhere i think, you totally ignore critical thinking, and just jump into the emotion of the story.

Haha fair enough, although i have no idea as to why you disagree with me normally....

But my point stands, our youth of the world deserve education. For supposed 'grown men' to destroy this suggests something is wrong with the mentality of these people.

Peace

You are right and more....

Uneducated people are easier to control, especially by dictators.
Uneducated people can't question what these people say, as they can't read.
Uneducated people are easy to get to do horrible things, because they don't know the truth-suicide bombers and such.
