King Amanullah Khan who is regarded as a modern and positive face in the history of Afghanistan has been recently accused of promoting prostitutions in Afghanistan during his kingdom life.
Neda Mohammad Nadim, the Afghan minister of higher education in an official statement accused King Amanullah Khan for promotion of prostitutions.
“Amanullah Khan brought the prescription of prostitutions in Afghanistan after returning from his tour of visiting western countries”, Afghan minister of higher education said.
Amanullah Khan was elaborating why women must stay home and why shouldn’t they go to school which was highly criticized by the Afghan religious scholars at that time saying it would not work as it was against our honor and against Islam, but Amanullah instead said that religious scholars are the source of corruptions and immorality, Neda Mohammad said.
This speech that has gone viral on social media has sparked anger and criticism of Afghan citizens globally. The majority of comments he has received under his Twitter posts are negative in regards to his remarks.
This comes as a number of limitations have been imposed on the Afghan women and girls since the takeover of Afghanistan by Taliban who are now operating under the name of ‘Islamic Republic of Afghanistan’ eying to be recognized globally.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has not been yet been recognized internationally as the world expects the Taliban to form an inclusive government to include other political, ethnic and religious groups to the new administration.
Opening girls schools in Afghainstan and giving Afghan women the rights to work and education is the other criteria set by the international community.
On the other hand, the world is in continuous interaction with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. The new administration receives at least 40m US dollars every week from the west with the coordination of the United Nations and a number of embassies and diplomatic missions are open and active in Afghanistan.
