Schools closed down in Pakistan by religious bigots

(Panjgur) Thousands of women and children took to the streets today in this small town in the province of Baluchistan to protest against the closure of schools by gun totting religious bigots. After letters were sent out which warned school administrators from having boys and girls attending the same school, at least 35 schools have decided to simply close down rather than risk the lives of any teacher or student.

Just what is it about girls receiving an education that so offends Islamic bigots?
