UN calls for reopen grils schools

KABUL (Khaama Press): The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) says schools and universities will resume in a month throughout the country, as millions of girls are deprived of attending education at secondary and higher levels.
UNAMA on Tuesday said on Twitter that the Afghan Interim Regime should now take action to improve the living conditions of the ordinary people and the future of Afghanistan.
The UN agency described the ban on female students’ education as a clear violation of human rights and “self-harm” as the country is already wrestling with a dire humanitarian situation.
Since the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, the group has banned female students to attend schools above grade six as well as university.
Following the implementation of the recent gender-based restrictions, human rights organizations have called the Taliban’s move gender partied, where women have been completely erased from public life.
On the contrary, Taliban officials have repeatedly stated that the bans are temporary and will be removed as soon as a pure Islamic environment is created. According to the Islamic Emirate authorities, the ordinary people’s mindset has been corrupted by the presence of Western-style culture over the past two decades.
In response to the human rights organization’s statement, the Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid has said that the United Nations agencies and the international community should not interfere in the internal affairs of Afghanistan. They should respect Afghan culture and values as well as Islamic Sharia laws instead, he added.
