Afghan Teacher Shot Dead After Condemning Suicide Bombings

Readers no doubt recall the 2006 Abdul Rahman fiasco, where several prominent Afghan clerics called for the death of an Afghan citizen who'd left Islam for Christianity. Here's another unsettling incident that shows there's still a long way to go in changing the culture of Afghanistan. From AP:

A teacher was shot to death in northern Afghanistan after he gave a speech condemning suicide bombings, officials said Wednesday.

Abdul Hadi criticized such attacks as un-Islamic and un-Afghan during a speech Tuesday in the Archi district of Kunduz province, said Khair Mohammad Subat, the provincial education department director.

Hadi spoke at a gathering of about 700 people, including the Kunduz governor, and was on his way home when he was killed, Subat said.

Kunduz police chief Gen. Mohammad Ayub Salangi said police were investigating. No arrests have been made.
