Taliban and women

Religious extremists really do work to be evil:

At the age of 11, Malala Yousafzai took on the Taliban by giving voice to her dreams. As turbaned fighters swept through her town in northwestern Pakistan in 2009, the tiny schoolgirl spoke out about her passion for education — she wanted to become a doctor, she said — and became a symbol of defiance against Taliban subjugation.

On Tuesday, masked Taliban gunmen answered Yousafzai’s courage with bullets, singling out the 14-year-old on a bus filled with terrified schoolchildren, then shooting her in the head and neck. Two other girls were also wounded in the attack.

and she was shot because?

”She has become a symbol of Western culture in the area; she was openly propagating it,’’ Ehsan said, adding that if she survived, the militants would certainly try to kill her again. ‘‘Let this be a lesson.’’

If you don’t think the right way, act the right way, and dress the right way you are subject to death. And for the Taliban that means, if you’re female, that you show that you think or show yourself at all in public. The leaders of the Taliban have become the symbol of evil.
