Kabul, ANI. After the Taliban regime came to Afghanistan, the lives of women there have become difficult. Meanwhile, senior Taliban leader Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai has come out in support of women’s rights to education and said it is the responsibility of the government to provide a safe education in the country.

Addressing a gathering to mark the death anniversary of Mullah Akhtar Mohamed Mansour, the former leader of the Islamic Emirate, Stanikzai said that women should be granted their rights based on Afghan culture and Islamic values, reports Tolo News.

Women are denied education in Afghanistan

“In the current situation, women cannot even ask for their inheritance. They are deprived of the right to education. Where can women learn Sharia lessons? Women constitute half of the population of Afghanistan.

Stanikzai is critical of small budgets for development in economic sectors. He also said that people have been forced to leave the country due to economic challenges.

Taliban government has no place in the United Nations

“We have no chair (place) in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), we have no chair in the United Nations and we have no political office in Europe,” he said.

Let us tell you that the Taliban’s decision to ban girls above 6th grade from going to school has been widely criticized nationally and internationally.

Instructions given to women TV anchors

Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers on Sunday issued an order for all female TV news anchors in the country. Women anchors have been asked to cover their faces during news broadcasts. The move by the radical Taliban has been criticized by human rights activists.

After the order was announced on Thursday, only a few news channels followed it, but on Sunday most of the women anchors came with their faces covered. The Taliban’s Ministry of Religious Affairs is busy implementing the order. The Ministry of Information and Culture said that there will be no compromise on this order.

In addition, the Taliban regime has curtailed women’s rights and freedoms. Women have been largely excluded from the workforce due to the economic crisis and restrictions.
