Female Plus Male Illiteracy in Afghanistan and Elsewhere in the Muslim World
[Quote – 141]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“Those who are so boisterous about condemning female illiteracy in a primitive place like Afghanistan, how loud do you think they have ever been in condemning male illiteracy in that society? Or in a similar Muslim society elsewhere?

I don’t know, but I have a feeling that not more than five or 10 percent of the people in Afghanistan really know how to read or write – women or men; male or female. And, evidently, no one gives – what is it that people don’t give? A “hoot” maybe?” (Dr. Pasha)
