America’s special representative for Afghan women, in response to the recent words of the Taliban’s Acting Minister of Education, said that this is not Afghan culture, but an advice imposed on Afghans.
Rina Amiri, the US special representative for Afghan women, wrote on Monday, 21 Sanballah, by publishing a tweet: “The Taliban claim that schools are closed to girls because of family preference and culture; But parents, religious figures and people throughout Afghanistan have loudly and repeatedly demanded that girls return to school.”
He said that this is not Afghan culture, but it is an advice imposed on Afghans.
Yesterday, Mrs. Amiri said that the continuation of the Taliban’s “cruel and destructive” policy of closing the gates of schools above the sixth grade to girls “has no justification.”
Meanwhile, Maulvi Noorullah Munir, the Acting Minister of Education of the Taliban, said during his visit to Uruzgan that in the current situation, people do not want the reopening of girls’ schools above the sixth grade.
