Afghanistan: Parents once again urge Taliban to reopen schools for girls

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 21 Mar 2023, 12:56 am

Kabul: Several Afghanistani parents and students have urged the Taliban authorities, the group which has been forcefully ruling the country since August 2021, to reopen secondary schools for girls, media reports said.

The schools have remained shut for the past 544 days since the Taliban imposed a ban on them.

Parents of the students expressed concern for their children’s future and urged the authorities to allow their daughters to return to school, reports Khaama Press.

Families said that the closure of schools had led to increased psychiatric disorders in their daughters and asked for the reopening of the school beyond the sixth grade on March 21 to begin the new academic year.

Interestingly, the Taliban government has said the ban imposed on  girls’ education was temporary and that they would permit it once the environment was appropriate.

However, no such move has been seen so far.
