Too much pressure on the kid though


pointlessly_pedantic

It's the shitty misleading wording here. The original post (someone else posted the source) just said the dad wanted to educate her like his sons (she's in grade 6 here) and that such education is especially important in his village because they have no women doctors. Sounds like he's just saying girls aren't given fair access to education and it shows.

Found the source. It's real. https://swedishcommittee.org/blog/father-who-considers-educating-his-daughters-duty


ArcherStirling

That is not what this is a picture of.


Putin_inyoFace

Have you seen this before? What’s going on with the picture. It’s literally just a man and a child with text overlaid on top with no source. Could be anyone and a totally fabricated story.

[Here is the original source. ](https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3473904009291162&id=722089527805971&refid=52&__tn__=-R) I know nothing about this NGO but they have a blue tick so I assume they're legit.


bugr_pikr

I found the link to their actual article from their website. You can also check their history on Wikipedia.

What is it?

Does the daughter want to be a doctor?


pointlessly_pedantic

Look at the original source someone linked above. Nowhere in it does it say he's forcing becoming a doctor on her. EDIT: [source](https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3473904009291162&id=722089527805971&refid=52&__tn__=-R&utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app)


toephu

Fair. Source wasn’t available when I commented. The wording on the pic isn’t the greatest


pointlessly_pedantic

Absolutely agree. Very poor wording.

One step at a time. It's a good thing if people that have only seen war from last 40 years realise the importance of education first. Afghanistan is a country where women aren't even allowed to work outside. So let's appreciate this.


JewOrleans

Do you have any source for this Facebook post? Or did you just assume it’s real?


[deleted]

2 seconds of google tells me they’re actually called ‘Pashtuns’ not ‘Pushtuns’ so I don’t think it’s real but I’m still gonna try and find out All I found was this article which claims to have quotes from the family although the only ‘proof’* is a tweet which also called them ‘Pushtuns’. Maybe that’s another name? (I have no idea) ** (there’s also another article linked which which I missed that mentions the school they study at so its looking likely to be real) [https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.ndtv.com/offbeat/father-travels-12-km-daily-to-take-daughters-to-school-wins-hearts-2144314%3famp=1&akamai-rum=off](https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.ndtv.com/offbeat/father-travels-12-km-daily-to-take-daughters-to-school-wins-hearts-2144314%3famp=1&akamai-rum=off)

It's in my comment. It's real.

This kind of devotion can be quite common in some areas of the world. YouTube deadliest journeys to school. You won't be disappointed

Revolutionary-Lynx54

I dont get why he waits 4 hrs wen its only 12km


idontknowthat123

It’s 12km. I wonder why he didn’t go home and back instead of waiting 4 hrs?


Desa0802

Maybe cuz of safety reasons. Those areas are still pretty dangerous so he probably might just be keeping an eye on the school


sherlockisdumbass

Like what is the problem if it was a lie? Just fucking go on with your life. Be happy man.


Volatile-Bait

Everyone is worried about whether its real or not, I'm wondering why I was never lucky enough to have 4 hour school days.


darkprinces12

If I have a daughter which I doubt it cause I don’t plan on having kids but who knows if I know some girl..my daughter is going to be my son

You mean, years of biking motorcycle?


DanteAll

12km isn't that far. It's not like he is carrying her.

Real story. Picture of husband and wife. He wants a divorce because she’s too old
