  The Religion of Murdering Teachers for Teaching Girls
Telegraph | News | Taliban execute teacher in front of his pupils for educating girls: "Taliban insurgents in southern Afghanistan have executed a school teacher in front of his pupils for refusing to comply with warnings to stop educating girls.

The attack took place on Thursday at a secondary school in Nadi Ali district, Helmand province, the scene of many Taliban attacks in recent months, according to the police, who learned of the incident yesterday.

About 4,000 British troops will be deployed to the province in April to combat an increasingly confident insurgency.

Pupils at the school said two armed men arrived by motorcycle. 'They dragged the teacher from the classroom and shot him at the school gate,' said Abdul Rahman Sabir, Helmand's police chief.

'He had received many warning letters from the Taliban to stop teaching, but he continued to do so happily and honestly - he liked to teach boys and girls.' He identified the teacher by the single name of Laghmani."
