The US-backed Afghan air force has bombed a madrassa at the time of dastar bandi, a ceremony to honor the children who have learned the Quran by heart. More than 100 children were killed but the mainstream media is shamefully silent. It’s the same media that gave a lot of coverage and hype to the Malala incident and the APS killings but is trying to hide the facts about this incident. Many media outlets seemed to try to portray this incident as an attack on terrorists only and didn’t mention the civilian and especially kids’ deaths.
Not just the media, the humanitarian organizations are also silent on this brutal incident.
Why? Are all kids not equal? As expected, people are enraged by this double standard and have shown their disappointment on different social media platforms.
