Taliban support edu in 'proper environment'
"Most of the Taliban members are teachers. We have ulema who know the importance of education better than others," the movement said in a statement. “There will be no permission to education that diverts the Muslims from the real part of Islam," it warned.
The insurgents said they would standby the people in their fight for getting education and would continue to assist them in this regard. The statement asked parents not to enroll their children to schools funded by Christians.
