RASC: As girls’ schools continue to be closed to girls above the sixth grade, the Taliban’s interior minister has stated that reopening schools and universities to girls is a “controversial issue” and time-consuming among the Taliban.
Haqqani said that he wants these differences to be resolved in a reasonable and logical way. This Taliban official had already emphasized that the issue of closing schools should be investigated.
Haqqani told CNN in month of Hamal last year that we will soon see good news about the reopening of girls’ schools.
After two years have passed since the ban on girls’ education, Haqqani said that this process is not permanent and is temporary. He and other officials of the Taliban group did not mention any timetable or work plan for reopening schools.
At the end of last year, in a meeting with the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Organization, this senior official of the Taliban group said that the reason for banning the education of girls was “difference of opinion in the educational curriculum” and said that this issue is not permanent and will be resolved.
It should be mentioned that since the school gates were closed to girls, the Taliban officials have always claimed that the school is temporary and the curriculum is temporary, but they have not yet created any openings for girls.
Since its creation in the early 1970s, the Taliban group has always been against the education and work of women and girls in Afghanistan, and the policy of this group has not changed in the past three decades.
At the same time, a number of officials of this group who played a prominent role in excluding girls above the sixth grade from schools were sanctioned by the European Union.
