Afghan Girls Return to School as Taliban’s Ban End

Only girls under the age of 12 were allowed to go to school after the Taliban took charge.

Kabul: After the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan, they imposed strict restrictions on the right of women to education.

Today, after seven months in this position, tens of thousands of girls across Afghanistan are returning to high school today.

When the Taliban took over in Afghanistan in August last year, all schools were closed due to the corona epidemic. But after two months only boys and girls under the age of 12 were allowed to go to school.

The Afghan Ministry of Education said today that schools would reopen in several provinces, including the capital Kabul.

“We are not reopening schools to please the international community. We are doing this to provide education and other facilities for our students.

Schools for girls between the ages of 12 and 19 will be segregated and run according to Islamic principles.
