Amid optimisms that a peace deal will be achieved in the near future with Hezb-e-Islami party led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the representatives of the party have seized there will be no compromise on women’s rights if two sides agreed to strike a deal.
According to the Afghan High Peace Council, the pledge by the representatives of Hezb-e-Islami was made during a meeting with the women’s rights activist in Kabul today.
The activists reportedly shared their concerns and questions with the representatives of Hezb-e-Islami who are in Kabul for peace talks.
This comes as the Afghan women suffered the most during the Taliban regime followed by years of violence as a result of civil war.
The women were particularly targeted by the Taliban regime who were barred from studies and other social activities.
However, Atiqullah Safi, a member of Hezb-e-Islami said the party respects the women’s position in the society and dismissed the reports regarding the party’s stance to prevent women from education as baseless.
Safi further added at least 8,000 children are studying in the schools of Hezb-e-Islami with the girls students forming half of the number.
