I have read recently that five schools in Balochistan have closed down after receiving threats from TTB and BLA that they would blow up these schools if they were not closed down. I could not comprehend the motive behind this inexorable attitude they have towards schools. While it is a fundamental right of every Muslim to go for acquiring knowledge, these organizations that are established in the name of Islam, have such pernicious hostility towards this objective. -SAIRA BUTT, Lahore
