BTJ Female Partner Reports Live from Afghanistan Where Young Girls Were Killed in a Targeted Attack
The war in Afghanistan has not ended – it continues to rage against women. At least 35 people were killed in Kabul in a suicide attack on the Kaaj Higher Education Center last week, according to our partner on the ground.
Kaaj Higher Education center is one of the last standing schools that still allows girls to attend and the majority of the victims in the shooting were young girls. “This happened at exactly ten o’clock in the morning,” reported the BTJ worker living in Afghanistan. “The classroom was targeted specifically by extremists because they dare to teach young girls.”
The attacker claimed to be a student, shot the two armed guards in front of the school, burst through the doors of the school and began shooting before setting off an explosive device.
BTJ partners together with women in Afghanistan who are currently being subjected to the most extreme teachings of Islam, but they continue to serve the people in spite of the personal challenges that they face.
Please continue to pray for the nation of Afghanistan and the women who are suffering under the Taliban.
Shootings like this are very sad about the loss of innocent lives. The United States has way too many and we never did anything to stop it. I wrote about Gun Violence constantly for 2 years on FACEBOOK how to stop Gun Violence. Stopping the sales of Guns particularly AK and Assault style would help stop it. I constantly recommended to install Metal Dectectors virtually in every building first staring with our Children and put them in Schools with Police so if an active shooter comes in with a weapon the metal detector would go off. I volunteered at the Covenant House in New York City and I was there at curfew time when they all come running in and they all must walk through a metal detector with 2 Guards checking for weapons like knives and guns and if you get caught then they kick you out and call the Police. Every store and mall and movie theater and Government Building and food store and so many others all should have them. Just like every Court House has them and Airport. This would stop anyone from entering with any weapon of any type. Now Justin Tradeau the Prime Minister of Canada immediately after Canada’s only Mass Shooting he banned 1,500 ASSAULT Guns in Canada of selling and buying and transporting. If Canada can do this why can’t we in the United States and in other Countries. Justin Tradeau said (These types of Guns are used on Battlefields not in our Cities and neighborhoods). And Jacinda Arden the Prime Minister of New Zealand felt the same way after the Mass shooting of Muslims in Christ Church so she collected assassult type Guns and other guns to crush and she herself was shown in a photo crushing a Gun. If that tiny country can do it everyone can.
