ICC Note:
Fundamentalist Islam again shows its true colors by beheading a teacher for teaching female students. If this is what they do to their own, can you imagine what they want to do to the Christians? ICC reported earlier how several Christians were assassinated (including beheadings) last year in Afghanistan .

Teacher beheaded, say officials


Taliban militants have beheaded a teacher in a central Afghan town, say officials.
Kandahar – Suspected Taliban militants have beheaded a teacher in a central Afghan town, the latest in a string of attacks on teachers and schools in the volatile region, officials said on Wednesday. The decapitated body of Malim Abdul Habib was found in his home in Qalat on Wednesday, said Ali Khail, a local government spokesman.

Habib was a teacher at Shaikh Mathi Baba School , which is attended by both sexes. Zabul province’s education director Nabi Khushal blamed the Taliban for the killing. “Only the Taliban are against girls being educated,” he said.

Khushal said that in the past year insurgents had occasionally put up posters around Qalat, demanding that girls’ schools be closed and threatening to kill teachers.

Hundreds of thousands of girls have returned to school since the Taliban was ousted, but opposition remains in conservative areas of rural Afghanistan .
