    To be afraid is the base of any criminal or illecit institution.
    That is the reason why, even if that may cause initial problems, girls and women must have the courage to testify this, if they will to change their status.
    God has created the people without dress.
    Dress are only necessary, for men and women, to repair by warm or cold climate.
    A pray to Afghan girls and women:
    Be not afraid, not subjet Yourself to terror, dispotism, or any other form of slavery.
    If You do not have now this courage, the courage to frequent school without any on Your face, understanding that Allah that is the name done by You to God has bever created men and women dressed , You will remain ever and for ever on an eternal form of slavery.
    God has not created slavery and is volunty is that his soon are free.
    Be not afraid Claudio Alpaca
