PESHAWAR.july 3, 2001: Muslim religious leaders and some Jehadi groups have threatened to set fire to community-based primary schools being run by Khawendo Khor, an social welfare organization, (sisters homes) if it did not close down them in Souther

The meeting was addressed by Maulvi Ameen, Maulvi Kareemullah, Maulvi Abdul Wahab, Mirza Qasimzai and others. They asserted that these schools were spreading vulgarity. They warned that if these schools continued operating in the area, they would be forcefully closed down. The officials of the NGO recently held a meeting with high officials of the provincial government and informed them about the threats but the authorities had failed to provide security to staff of these schools, and instead the organization has been asked to temporarily close down the schools. The Khawendo Khor (sisters' home) had earlier faced the same problem in upper and lower Dir districts where around 50 community-based schools are being run with the help of village education committees. The christians of NWFP are concerned on this situation and safety of the missionaries.
