Will the horrors ever cease?
Pamela Constable writes in a Washington Post article entitled "Beheading of third-grade girl ‘was just the spark’ for Afghan minority group":
"The last time Ramzan Ali Tabason saw his 9-year-old daughter alive was the day he put her in a van, along with her aunt and five other people from their Afghan village. They were headed for the Pakistani city of Quetta, where the little girl, Shukria, was going to spend time with her ailing grandmother.
The next time Ali saw his daughter, in mid-November, she was lying in a coffin with her severed head stitched jaggedly back onto her neck. She and the other passengers, all ethnic Hazaras from Ghazni province, had been abducted on the highway by Taliban insurgents, held captive for 27 days and then beheaded."
Constable's article follows on the heels of Alissa J. Rubin's lead New York Times article entitled "Flawed Justice After a Mob Killed an Afghan Woman," describing the horrific murder of a woman falsely accused of burning a Quran.
But not to worry! Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance, particularly toward women . . . or is it?
