Top Malizia official: Caretaker government cannot deny women’s right to education

Bayan News

Malizia Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim in a statement criticized the denial of education for women and girls in Afghanistan, adding that the caretaker government cannot deny women the right to education.

He made the remarks during a visit to Saudi Arabia and in a meeting with the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Jeddah.

“The problem lies in their attitudes towards women’s education. “It is their choice to make women universities or schools, but they cannot deny women the right to education.”

The ban on women and girls’ education by the caretaker government has brought national and international criticism.

Most Islamic countries have criticized the move by Kabul’s acting government and have not considered it in accordance with the principles and values of the Islamic religion.

Although more than two years have passed since girls’ schools were blocked, government officials have also consistently stated that the ban is temporary, not permanent, but it is not yet known when the school gates will be opened to girls.
