Girls, vetoed on the back to high school in the Afghanistan of the Taliban

The samples of indignation have been repeated in Afghanistan after the Taliban decided that only men would return on Saturday to the secondary classrooms after one month closed, while the students must remain at home, in a new gesture of the Islamist radicals against the Female Rights.

"Last night I did not sleep, all night I was thinking about my daughters, they had been at home more than a month and anxiously waited for the reopening of schools. But the government (Taliban) only allowed boys to resume classes," says Efe Sakina , 38 years old.

Her daughters Hasina, 16, and Adila, 14, cry disconsolate since you learned that you can not return to school yet. For now only girls of primary education have been able to return to their classrooms.

"We are a poor family, we spend a lot of money on the education of our daughters, but now we do not know if they can rejoin their classes or not," he regrets.

Secondary schools had not reopened their doors since August 15, when the previous Afghan government was collapsing with Kabul's take on the part of the Taliban, who are excused by apporating an adequate environment for girls.

For many this decision recalls that taken during the previous Taliban regime between 1996 and 2001, when under the same pretext they maintained the girls locked up in their homes, assuring that they would return to school when the security situation improves.

The Taliban Bilal Karimi spokesman has nevertheless insisted that the opening of female schools will occur "at a time", and has said that it is not necessary to worry. "The authorities are working on a guide, in the separation of classrooms, and in the availability of teachers and transportation for girls. The result will be shared with the nation," the spokesman said to EFE.

Human rights activists expect the Taliban not to repeat their practices from the past, with an Afghan society that has changed a lot during the last two decades, in addition to the need they have to earn global recognition.

"We do not know what the Taliban are doing and what their plan is, but we ask them to continue committed to their promises to respect the rights of women," said Efe Marghalara Khara, Director of Social Affairs of the Dissolved Ministry of Women, Now substituted by the Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and Vice Prevention, already in force at the first quinquennium Taliban.

Khara remarks that the situation now "is completely different from that of the nineties", and thank you very much "to national and international pressures" does not believe that Taliban will "ignore half of Afghan population and isolate it".

It also stresses that high school schools were already separated by sex and most teachers in the female classrooms were women, so there is no reason to delay the return of students to schools.

"There is nothing against Islam or antislamic in female schools and other organs related to women, I do not know what the Taliban want to do, should clearly tell the nation what they want to do with women in this country," he said.

Since the fall of the Taliban regime with the US invasion in 2001, the situation for women changed drastically in a large part of Afghanistan, with a percentage of girls in schools that went from zero to 39% in recent years, between surroundings. 10 million students enrolled, according to official data.

Former Vice Minister of Education Ghulam Jailani Humayoon has further insisted that women's education is a "fundamental right (Y) is not only an international principle, but also forms part of the teachings of Islam."

"The ban on the education of girls will not only affect the educational system, but will also seriously affect the spirit and morality of girls," says Efe Humayoon, so he added, is "responsibility" of the Taliban Government Avoid That this happens.

In the Doha Agreement, signed in February 2020 between the United States and the Taliban, which put date on the departure of US troops from Afghanistan, the Radical Group undertook to respect human rights in the country, especially those of the Women, but their actions say otherwise.

There is no woman in the interim government announced by the Taliban on September 7, many women have not yet been able to return to their jobs, the female protests were dispersed violently, and on Friday they replaced the Ministry for Women's Affairs, For that of the propagation of virtue and the prevention of vice, which will be responsible for the rigid implementation of Islamic standards.
