Protesting girls against the Taliban: Education of girls is not only permissible, but also our right

A number of protesting women in Kabul reacted to the recent statements of the Acting Minister of Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice of the Taliban, who called the education of non-religious sciences unnecessary.
These women gathered in a closed space on (Wednesday, September 28) and emphasized the right to education for girls by citing verses from the Quran and displaying protest placards.
In the women’s protest placards, it is written:
“Education is our right, learning science is mandatory, not unnecessary” and also “don’t politicize girls’ education”.
These reactions are while Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai, Political Deputy of the Taliban’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Tuesday of this week at the commemoration of World Tourism Day that “there is no Islamic reason for closing girls’ schools, and education for men and women is an absolute must.”

Meanwhile, Mohammad Khaled Hanafi, Acting Minister of Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice of the Taliban, in response to his words, said in this meeting, “Learning worldly sciences is not important and you should not waste your time by school and university.”

This difference of opinion between two political leaders of the Taliban regarding the education of girls has met with widespread reactions.
