Don't let women suffer; You Say Email:email@example.com.
ALL politicians pander to their constituents at election time, but President Karzai's pandering to the Shia clerics takes electioneering to a new low.
Yet selling women out should come as little surprise given this was the man who said: "Remember, the last king of Afghanistan who tried to give rights to women ended up dead."
The Taliban would be proud of Karzai who passed a law that in effect legalises marital rape.
As we approach the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Wilberforce, it's important to remember that Africa was a continent where to be born male was to be dealt a hor-rendousldifficult card. Two hundred years since the abolition of the slave trade, Afghanistan cannot remain a country where to be born female is to be dealt an insufferably difficult card.
