US special representative for Afghan women Rina Amiri has said the reopening of teenage girls’ schools in Afghanistan might lead to frictions among the Taliban leadership.

Speaking to Turkish TRT, Rina Amiri said that there are people among the Taliban who are pro-freedom for people in particular the freedom of work and education for women and the reopening of schools for girls.

Amiri added that this group of the Taliban believes in the importance of reopening schools for their political survival and interests in Afghanistan.

“While there is another group of the Taliban that sees Afghanistan as it is in their mind not as it really is. They see Afghanistan in line with their strict understanding of Islam that is in opposition with other Islamic countries.” Said Amiri.

The special representative warned that Afghanistan might lead to disintegration if the Taliban remain resistant to their strict position regarding girls’ schools and if they do not embrace the will of the Afghan people.

This is the first time that a US official talks about the consequences of the closure of schools in Afghanistan.

The ban has not only triggered the anger of the World Community but also the Afghan people and a number of Taliban officials and pro-Taliban figures.
