Kabul – The United Nations Security Council will come together to discuss the Taliban’s decision concerning the closure of education doors to girls. The meeting date is not fixed yet, but it will happen soon in the near future.
Since the return of Taliban rebels in power, they have been imposing restrictions; particularly, women and girls have been paying the price with their basic rights of access to education, civil and health services. The rebels, with no hesitation in the first days of their entrance to Kabul closed all the education doors to girls, but later on, as a result of the international community’s pressure promised to reopen the education doors to girls in the spring of 1401. In contrast, they have stepped back from their promise and have argued that girls’ uniforms are not aligned with Islamic morals. The schools’ doors will remain closed for girls till further notice.
International Community and their very close supporters have called on the Taliban many times to change their outdated ideologies and cope with the realities of Afghanistan. But Taliban on the bases of vague religious arguments have been trying to make a hell out of the country, particularly for women and girls.
Every restriction that they have been imposing so far is argued on the bases of religious values; while, they do not give any exact reference in the holy book.
