The former Afghan president Hamid Karzai in his recent interview said that the Taliban have pledged education of girls, women’s rights, the national flag, and other national values but no implementation of the promises has been seen yet.

Hamid Karzai said that during his interactions with the Taliban, he has focused mainly on three things which are girls’ education, women’s prestige in the Afghan society, and an all-inclusive government.

The former president has added that the people of Afghanistan need a government in which they can live without intimidation, fear, have good relations with the world, work for development, and let people live in joy.

“We need a cabinet that represents the entire Afghanistan, women and people from all ethnicities are seen in that, but what the Taliban has declared does not meet the definition.” Said Karzai.

On the closure of girls’ schools, the former president said that there is no way for the development of the country except for the education of girls.

Hamid Karzai talks about the ongoing situation in Afghanistan as people are still afraid of their future especially when it comes to the future of their daughters and the so-called monopolized cabinet has arisen worries among the people.
