RASC News Agency: The delegation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation has asked the Taliban group to provide the possibility of educating girls at all levels
A delegation from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation met with the ministers of education and higher education of the Taliban group in Kabul on Wednesday, September 6 and asked them to allow girls and boys to participate in all academic and professional levels.
In a statement, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation said that this delegation, in a meeting with Habibullah Agha, the Minister of Education of the Taliban group, and Neda Mohammad Nadim, the Minister of Higher Education of the Taliban group, emphasized, “Teaching with the consensus of the religious scholars of the Ummah is an Islamic duty for men and women.”
The statement said: “The board stressed the need to make all efforts to empower boys and girls to enroll in all levels of education and all the specializations needed by the people of Afghanistan at this critical stage of history.”
According to the announcement, the delegation heard a full report on the Taliban group’s efforts to “revise curricula and create a safe environment for girls’ education across the country.”
At the end of the statement, it is stated that the delegation also announced the readiness of the member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to provide all possible support in this regard.
In the past two years, the Taliban group has banned girls’ secondary and high schools, and since December last year, it has also banned women from universities.
Before this, the Deputy Minister of Information and Culture of the Taliban group had complained to Islamic countries to recognize this group “for the sake of Islam”, but this group has continued to discriminate against gender, ethnicity and religion in the country and violated the fundamental rights of the people. They say that it has provoked the criticism of the countries of the world, including the Islamic countries.
