I saw no such atrocities while I was in Morocco, despite the country being largely Islamic.
Indeed, I saw both girls and boys at school, and getting out of school, and being picked up by their parents or walking home with their backpacks, looking for all the world like normal schoolkids. Because, you know... they were.

Only in certain parts. Even when they nominally ruled the country they never controlled more than perhaps a quarter of it.
