Norwegian Refugee Council has condemned the decision of the Taliban over suspension of girls’ classes upper than grade 6 and added that this casts a dark shadow on the start of the school year in Afghanistan.

The council in a press release said to be hopeful that the concerning announcement by the Ministry of Education will be reversed.

The statement further reads that the Taliban government is expected to allow all girls and boys across the whole country.

“We expect the Taliban government to allow all girls and boys across the whole country to resume their complete education cycle, in line with earlier public assurances they have given. Limiting girls’ schooling to primary education will devastate their future and the future of Afghanistan.” Reads the statement.

Meanwhile, spokesperson of the Ministry of Education of the IEA Aziz Ahmad Reyan said that they had submitted the office of Prime Minister the scheme regarding reopening of girls’ school that was refused only hours before school resumption.

Reyan added that further details will be given by the chief spokesperson of the IEA Zabiullah Mujahid.

Ministry of Education announced on Tuesday morning that girls’ classes upper than grade 6 will be suspended until the next notice.
