      What could be the objective of burning the school by these Talibans ? As far as now, all the schools that have been burned by these talibans are government schools. So are they want the kids to go to madrasas? and become more indoctrinated and become jihadists?

        Yes yes, go on do it. That is how secularism, democracy, respect and patriotism is served. Continue doing it. Mankind will go to the next level by these acts. There is no need to elevate the brain and the race. We need to go back down the natural food chain. Well done. Continue burning things. We the congress and the secular media are right behind you, supporting you and fanning your hatred. Oh and on a parting note, thank you for feeding our greed and our lust for power.
