Purple Saturdays Movement’s Reaction to the Third Doha Meeting on Afghanistan 05 Jul 2024
Purple Saturdays Movement's Reaction to the Third Doha Meeting on Afghanistan In response to the Third Doha Meeting on Afghanistan, the Purple Saturdays Movement has stated in a public announcement that the United Nations' denial of the Afghan people, especially women, at the third Doha meeting, and the invitation to the Taliban, once again proves that through extortion, whitewashing, and maintaining the Taliban in power, support and facilitation for the legitimization of the Taliban regime under the guise of increased interaction will continue. "We fully understand that the whitewashing and maintenance of the Taliban in power, and the facilitation for the legitimization of their self-claimed government under the guise of engagement, is being orchestrated at the behest of superpower countries by the United Nations, and is not in favour of the Afghan people, especially women." Members of the Purple Saturdays Movement assert that they are once again making it clear to the United Nations and its supporters that the people of Afghanistan are no longer willing to be sacrificed for appeasement and the interests of the United Nations and terrorist-nurturing countries. "The people of Afghanistan, especially women, have no pleasant memories of the Doha meetings, and despite Qatar being an Arab and Muslim country, it supports a group that, under the guise of implementing Islamic law, commits crimes and suppresses the country's citizens without any other record." The members of this movement have demanded that the government of Qatar refrain from interfering in the affairs of Afghanistan supporting the Taliban, and going beyond their country into a venue and platform for political transactions. They consider elections and the Afghan people's votes as fundamental and have asked the United Nations and foreign hands to refrain from determining and producing fake representatives, especially for women and civil society in Afghanistan.

Third Year of Deprivation for Schoolgirls from Taking the University Entrance Exam 23 Jun 2024
Third Year of Deprivation for Schoolgirls from Taking the University Entrance Exam Some schoolgirls in Kabul city say that their relentless efforts to participate in the university entrance exam and continue their education have been nullified by the ruling group. These students have lodged complaints against the Taliban group and claim that for the third year in a row, female students in Afghanistan have been deprived of taking part in the university entrance exam. Basbibi, one of the students in the twelfth grade when the Afghan government fell into the hands of the Taliban, told the Afghan Women's news agency: "It has been 1006 days that thousands of girls across the country have been deprived of their right to education. These students stayed up nights with hopes of better tomorrows, studied to one day serve themselves and their community, but with the Taliban's reasserted control, they have left all of us girls hopeless and confined us to our homes." Furthermore, Sharifa is another student who spent many years preparing for the university entrance exam. She says: "Alongside school, from seventh grade to twelfth grade, I was engrossed in seasonal courses of mathematics, trigonometry, and English language to succeed in the university entrance exam in my desired field, which was medicine. Unfortunately, this year in 2024, the Taliban once again did not allow female students to participate in the university entrance exam, leaving my goals and aspirations stuck in my throat." A number of twelfth-grade schoolgirls this year also hoped that the Taliban would allow them to take the university entrance exam. Yet again this year, they have not been given permission to participate in the exam. For nearly three years, these female school students have been languishing aimlessly in their homes without a future. It should be noted that girls' schools above the sixth grade have been closed since August 15, 2021, with the arrival of the Taliban in Afghanistan, and the gates of universities were closed to girls in 2022, sparking national and international reactions. Previously, Taliban authorities had always promised to reopen schools and universities for girls above the sixth grade, but this promise remains unfulfilled and has now become a trivial matter for them.
