First Female Afghan Military Pilot………………now that will bring the Imams out in a hot sweat!

This is the kind of progress that all women seek and in particular those constrained by the religious and cultural beliefs of a patriarchal society. There will be many men within Islam looking at this with horror…………………….

AFGHANISTAN-KABUL-FEMALE PILOTCaptain Niloofar Rahmani, 23, defied death threats from the Taliban and even her own extended family to become the first female pilot in the Afghan military since the fall of the terror group in 2001. She and nine other inspirational women from across the world have now been awarded the U.S Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage Award 2015.
