Following the closure of girls’ schools, the ministry of higher education of the interim regime in Afghanistan has banned women from going to universities.

Tolo News published a letter from the ministry of higher education Tuesday evening, stating that girls are banned from attending universities until further notice.

In an official letter, the ministry of higher education has ordered all public and private universities to suspend female university students’ education until the next order. Also, girls’ secondary and higher schools remain closed for the past year.

The closure of girls’ schools has received reactions on national and international levels. Many women protested and launched civil campaigns demanding their very natural and basic rights in different cities of Afghanistan. However, none of these efforts have yielded any positive results so far. Besides ignoring these claims, the authorities of the de facto regime of Afghanistan started arresting and torturing these social activists.

Meanwhile, the US Department of States Special Representative Thomas West on Twitter expressed his solidarity with the Afghan women and girls due to the freshly imposed restrictions.  

The authorities of the ruling regime reiterate that they will provide women’s rights according to the Sharia laws, not the ones defined by the Western world. They are working on formulating the curriculum and uniform of girls’ schools. Girls’ schools have remained closed due to the existing economic and security problems and will resume as the situation get better.

Currently, Afghanistan is the only Islamic country where girls beyond the primary level are not allowed to go to school.
