Education is "un-Islamic"

Pakistan: Taliban blow up 3 more schools

What’s the wisdom of Ask the Imam on the very important question of education for Muslimahs? He quotes the Hadith:

“Ibn Umar reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: ‘A woman should not emerge from her home except if she is forced to do so”

Of course, he goes on at greater length, but why bother? What do you need school for when you have purdah?

With apologies to Sam Cooke:

Don’t know much about history;
Don’t know much biology;
Don’t know much about a science book;
Don’t know much about the French I took;

But I do know that Allah hates you*;
And I know that if we blame the Jews,
What a halal world this would be.

*Sahih Bukhari 2.24.555: “Allah has hated you” for asking too many questions.

“Three schools blown up in Orakzai Agency,” from Dawn, April 29, thanks to JW

Not to worry: KRudd finances madrassas & mosques —

PESHAWAR: Three schools were blown up by militants in the Mamozai area of upper Orakzai Agency on Thursday.

The attacks were the latest in a slew of militant violence. On Wednesday, suspected militants attacked a checkpoint in Beizot. Forces retaliated and killed five suspected militants and injured several others.

Five suspected militants were also arrested in Mishit-Mela and Ferozekhel.

It has been almost four weeks since the Orakzai operation was launched in the agency, in which troops claim to have killed over 400 militants so far.

Security forces also claim to have consolidated their positions in most parts of the lower Orakzai and now claim to be advancing towards the central part of the agency.

In the Khyber Agency at least five militants have been killed and 18 others have been arrested including two commanders of Lashkar-e-Islam in Bara Tehsil.

  1. Yes, it was mentioned – however the chief culprits – Mr Martin (the muslim convert) and Mumtaz the muslim slug – have not been brought to task. It would be very nice if their local communities completely black-ban these two muslim scum from any activity or enterprise that is conducted within the community.

  2. Taliban wound 15 girls in jihad attack on Pakistan college

    As Hamas-linked CAIR swings into action to block Tennessee’s anti-Sharia bill, here is a bracing reminder of the bounty Sharia brings to a land. “Taliban wound 15 girls in Pakistan college attack,” from AFP, March 1 (thanks to JW):

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Taliban militants on motorbikes wounded 15 girls when they opened fire with pistols and lobbed grenades at a college party in northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, police said.
    Some of the victims were in a critical condition after the attack on the state-run girls-only institution in the town of Mardan, 40 kilometres (25 miles) northeast of the regional capital Peshawar.

    All the girls were aged 18 to 20, police said.

    “Gunmen hurled two grenades and then opened fire with pistols. Fifteen girl students have been injured, some of them were in critical condition,” Khalid Nasim, a senior police officer in the town, told AFP.

    “Taliban militants were involved in this attack, they were responsible,” he added….

    There was no claim for the attack, but Islamists opposed to co-education and advocating sharia law have destroyed hundreds of schools, mostly for girls, in northwest Pakistan in recent years.
