No sports for women in Afghanistan

Reader comment on item: Twenty Years After 9/11

Dear Dr Pipes, As per the NPR news, women will not be allowed to play sports in the new Afghanistan (ref 1). I can now expect that many Afghan women will now try to migrate to other countries just so they can play some sports. Will it be too much to ask them to also leave Islam and convert to a better religion like Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism or one of many others. Remember, no one suffers in hell for leaving Islam. That is nothing but circular logic.
