Richard Bennett, the UN special rapporteur on Afghanistan, condemned the thousandth day of the blockade of education for girls above the sixth grade in Afghanistan.

In a statement posted on his X social media page on Friday, Richard Bennett expressed that despite enduring a thousand days of unacceptable and unimaginable bans on education for girls, millions of Afghan girls continue to pursue their dreams.

“We must all defend the right to education for girls in Afghanistan. We must stand as firmly and steadfastly beside them in our resolve,” Bennett said.

Bennett has called on the global community to work towards the right to education for girls in Afghanistan.

Furthermore, Rina Amiri, the special representative of the United States for women and human rights in Afghanistan, has also stated that the Taliban’s policy of banning girls from education has led the country’s future to ruin.

It is worth mentioning that after taking control of Afghanistan, the Taliban closed the doors of schools for girls above the sixth grade, and it has been nearly three years [1000 days] since they were deprived of their right to attend schools.
