A new report from the Human Rights Council states that Afghan women have experienced severe discrimination


Bayan News – Recently, Richard Bennett, the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Afghanistan, and Dubravka Šimonović, the head of the UN Working Group on Discrimination against Women, presented a report on the human rights situation of women and girls in Afghanistan to the Human Rights Council.

The report, which was released yesterday (July 12) on the Human Rights Council website, states that Afghan women and girls currently experience the worst human rights situation in the world.

The head of the Working Group on Discrimination against Women stated that negative actions against women and girls have been evident in a number of countries, but none have been as severe as those experienced by Afghan women and girls.

According to the report, the restrictions imposed by the interim Kabul government on women and girls have negatively impacted their freedom of behavior, clothing, and access to education.

The report clearly states that the prohibition of education for girls in Afghanistan is unique to this country and is not seen in any other country in the world.

However, the interim Kabul government has always considered the imposition of restrictions on women and girls in Afghanistan to be an internal matter and has emphasized that opposition to it is a problem with Islam.
