According to Sputnik, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hossein Amir Abdulahian has called the prevention of women and girls from education by the Taliban in Afghanistan incompatible with the “teachings” of Islam.
He raised this matter in his speech at the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO).
In this meeting, Abdulahian also emphasized for the establishment of inclusive government in Afghanistan.
He said “Undoubtedly, the establishment of an inclusive government in Afghanistan can not only help the aid programs and the reconstruction of the country, but it will also reduce the threats caused by terrorist groups, refugees and drug trafficking for the region”.
Iran’s foreign minister further said that his country considers the action of Afghanistan’s ruling body in depriving women and girls of education to be in conflict with the teachings of the merciful religion of Islam and expresses its deep concern over it.
Previously, other Islamic countries had also opposed the policies of the Taliban towards women and girls.
Despite these oppositions, the Taliban have not retreated from their position and at the same time defend their actions.
