Young girls are allowed to go to schools in Afghanistan with no sign of relief for adults women.

KABUL: Weeks after banning education for all women, hardliner rulers allow primary education for girls in war-torn Afghanistan.

Afghan-based news outlet Gawharshad Media shared a letter from Taliban-led officials that directs authorities to reopen schools for girls from 1-6 standard but linked it with the proper Islamic dressing code.

The recent development comes as the Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugees Council visited the landlocked nation as she called on authorities to ensure that NRC will not work without women workers after Kabul restricted women workers in NGOs.

The current rulers restricted women from higher educational institutions, especially colleges and universities, triggering condemnation from across the globe and misery among youth.

The ban prevails despite some women daring to stage demonstrations in Kabul, taking their silenced voices against the ban. However, Afghan forces thwarted all rallies.

Lately, Pakistan, the UN, and several nations also condemned the move, which echoed the previous Taliban regime in which girls were not allowed to receive an education.

The international community also demanded Taliban leaders revoke the ban if Kabul wishes to be formally recognised by world leaders.

Pakistan disappointed by the ban on girls’ education

Amid the condemnations, Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called it disappointing move by the neighbouring nation, as the Bhutto scion advocated engagement.

“I still think the easiest path to our goal – despite having a lot of setbacks when it comes to women’s education and other things – is through Kabul and the interim government,” Bilawal said.

The move also raised many questions as the Taliban ruler pledged not to repeat extremist measures after seizing power after the US withdrawal from the country. However, the all-male cabinet continued to roll back fundamental rights offered to women.

Some reports claimed that a few cabinet members opposed the ban on women’s education. However, it was imposed at the behest of the Taliban’s supreme leader Hibatullah Akhundzada.

We are going to allow women and girls their rights to work and studies, says Taliban’s spokesman Zabihullah in his first press conference
