United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed concern over the continuation of the suspension of teenage girls in Afghanistan and added that it will damage the entire country.

Antonio Guterres said that the ban is an unjustifiable violation of equal rights.

“I deeply regret that girls’ education above 6th grade remains suspended – an unjustifiable violation of equal rights that damages the entire country.” Reads part of the Twitter post.

The UN chief further added that support for Afghan women and girls is the support that lifts children out of hunger and communities out of poverty.

It comes as the announcement of the Taliban has not only been condemned internally but triggered anger in the international community as well.

In a recent condemnation, a number of religious scholars gathered in Kabul and asked the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to reverse its decision and reopen schools for girls.
