Female university ban sparks internal and global condemnation


Kabul: The Taliban’s decision to suspended access to universities for female students, drawing strong condemnation both in the country and abroad.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in a statement that he is “deeply alarmed by news reports that the Taliban have suspended access to universities to women and girls.”

According to Guterres, the denial of education not only violates the equal rights of women and girls but will have a devastating impact on the country’s future.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said he is “deeply dismayed by the announcement from the Taliban denying women the right to a university education.”

“Education is one of the fundamental and basic rights of all citizens. Depriving girls of this right is regrettable,” former HCNR chief Abdullah Abdullah said on Twitter.

“While all citizens of the country support girls education, I, as a citizen, expect & ask that the decision to close girls schools & universities to be reconsidered,” he said.

Meanwhile the Foreign Ministry of Qatar also in a statement expressed concerns over the banning of women and girls from going to schools.

“As a Muslim country in which women enjoy all their rights, especially education, the State of Qatar calls on the Afghan caretaker government to review its decision in line with the teachings of the Islamic religion concerning women’s rights.”

At the same time experts, says that if the doors of the universities remain closed, it will further distance people from government and grows dissatisfaction.

According to analysts a person’s life is directly related to education and literacy and such a decision is in contrast with the intellectual development of a person.

They also adds that if the government continues this path, pressure and sanctions will increase from the countries of the world, and the negative consequences will impacts Afghanistan people.

The suspension of universities will also cause financial problems for students and teachers, and it will also inflict economic problems for the owners of private universities.

Meanwhile, in addition to the suspension of public and private universities, it has been more than a year that girls’ schools above the sixth grade have also remained closed for unknown reasons.
