Afghan Taliban maintains its stance: “Teenage girls should not go to school” | outside

On Wednesday, the Minister of Education of the Afghan Taliban, Habibullah Agha, urged teenage girls not to go to school. According to him, circumstances do not allow this.

The minister made the remarks during the inauguration of a religious school in the northeastern province of Panjshir, according to local TV channel TOLOnews.

Since the Taliban came to power in August 2021, they have introduced very strict rules and laws. One of them is preventing girls and women over the age of 12 from going to school. Just last month, the ministry closed some schools run by NGOs in Kandahar and Helmand provinces.

People who dare to challenge decisions based on false allegations are arrested. Recently, educational activist Motiullah Waissa was arrested due to “suspicious” activities. Through a network of activists, Wessa advocated for girls’ education, especially in remote parts of the country.

Despite national and international pressure, the Taliban has not committed to reopening schools for girls. The Taliban is in dire need of international recognition, as no country in the world has recognized the Taliban government.
