Rally against destruction of girls’ schools

TOBA TEK SINGH: Scores of activists of political parties, non-government organizations (NGOs) and human rights organisations staged a protest rally here on Monday against destruction of girls schools in Fata and Swat by Taliban.

The rally ended at the district press club after marching along different roads. The participants were addressed by an NGO chief Atif Jamil, advocate Farooq Imran, Labour Party district secretary Tariq Mahmood and PML-N labour wing president Ghulam Mustafa.

They demanded that the government should provide protection to teachers of girls schools and reopen them. They said all political and religious parties of the country should form pubic opinion against such elements who were enemies of women education.
