Yes, you read it right. Appearently some self-appointed Mullahcrat thinks that “Only girls with bad character go to college.” This is yet another example of perversion of religion and shows that how self styled spokesmen (I can’t use the word spokesperson here since these people would certainly say that there is no such thing as a spokeswoman) lack the basic knowledge of Islam. Have they forgotten the hadiath about obtaining knowledge being obligatory on all Muslim men and women? May be I am being too kind when I say have they forgotten, may be they have not heard about it! Well, God knows best. Here is the excerpt about the absurdity.
The sisters allege their neighbour Mohammad Ali Nisar Ansari assaulted their parents and brother on May 11. Ansari allegedly asked the sisters’ father Yasheen Sheikh not to send them to college.
Ansari and other men in their locality believe that “only girls with bad character go to college” and did not want sisters to study after school. The family was told that Islam does not “permit” girls to study.
“They threatened me and abused my family. They beat up my father and brother so badly that there was blood all over the floor,” says Samina.
Samina alleges Nagpada police station officials refused to accept her complaint, the petition said.
Remember Logic 101, if not here is a primer.
- “Only girls with bad character go to college”
- Aliana goes to College.
- Aliana is a girl.
Therefore, Aliana is …. never mind. We all know that Logic is haraam.
