The Pakistani Taliban has sent threatening letters to schools in Balochistan province, bordering Iran and Afghanistan, which has forced the institutions to shut down, a media report said Saturday. A number of schools, including two girls’ schools, have closed in Balochistan after the school managements received threatening letters, sent by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Balochistan chapter, reported.
The letters threatened that if “purdah” was not observed in schools, then teachers and administrative heads will have to bear the consequences. The militant outfit said there were many TTP informants among the students and staffers and warned the school authorities of dire consequences in case of non-compliance.
Similar letters threatening action against wearing “western clothes” were sent to schools in Mastung district.
