Freedom and Religious Liberty

Thought experiment for the day: ever wonder what it's like to live in a country where individual freedom and religious liberty are not valued?

Reuters reports that Afghan schoolgirls were poisoned in an anti-education attack.

Since the 2001 toppling of the Taliban, which banned education for women and girls, females have returned to schools, especially in Kabul.
But periodic attacks still occur against girls, teachers and their school buildings, usually in the more conservative south and east of the country, from where the Taliban insurgency draws most support.
“We are 100 percent sure that the water they drunk inside their classes was poisoned."
