Islamabad: The National Commission on the Status of Women (NCSW) strongly condemns the act of militant groups in Orakzai Agency, where they have blown up to ashes the only Girls College.
With the destruction of girl’s schools and colleges in the region, the miscreants are creating new wave of fear among the people in the area. As a result the parents are compelled to withdraw their children especially girls from schools. This will result in girls being deprived of receiving education, which is the ultimate scheme of obscurantist forces.
The NCSW feels that depriving girls from getting education through such brutal and mean tactics is not only against the constitution of Pakistan but also against the basic teachings of Islamic jurisprudence.The news
