Kabul: Somaya Faruqi, activist and former captain of the Afghan Girls Robotics Team, speaks during the Transforming Education Summit on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters in Manhattan, New York City, New York, U.S., on September 19, 2022.

At the UN General Assembly, Somaya Farouqi, the captain of the Afghan girls’ robotics team, pleaded with the authorities and global leaders to not allow Afghan girls to become the “casualties of global politics.”

Addressing the UN General Assembly at the UN headquarters on Monday night, September 19, Farouqi called on the world leaders to not allow Afghanistan to become a “cemetery of our dreams and goals.”

According to the captain of the Afghan girls’ robotics team, the Taliban closed schools to millions of girls in Afghanistan after assuming control, and there are currently no signs that the group will reopen, allowing access to education to Afghan girls.

At the same time as girls have been deprived of education for a year, there has been a wave of efforts to reopen it, and the UN Secretary-General has emphasized on lifting restrictions for girls’ education.

Antonio Guterres in the General Assembly of the United Nations once again urged Taliban to act immediately and cancel the restrictions on the education of girls in Afghanistan.
