Religious schools in Afghanistan allow all girls to study

  • Afghan girls of all ages are now permitted to attend Islamic schools.
  • Girls at government-run madrassas are not restricted by age.
  • The madrassas are among the few places where ladies can go beyond sixth grade to get any form of education.

Afghan girls of all ages are now permitted to attend Islamic schools, which were formerly exclusively for boys, according to a statement released by the Taliban leadership.

This follows the announcement made by UN special envoy Roza Otunbayeva that she was obtaining “more and more anecdotal evidence” that Islamic schools, or madrassas, are open to female students.

Girls at government-run madrassas are not restricted by age; instead, they must be in a class that is appropriate for their age, according to Mansor Ahmad, a spokesman for Afghanistan’s Education Ministry. Females of all ages, including adult women, are welcome to attend privately organized madrassas because they are age-neutral.

The Taliban’s restriction on women and girls attending higher education beyond the sixth grade, including universities, has drawn condemnation from all around the world.

The madrassas are among the few places where ladies can go beyond sixth grade to get any form of education. In December of last year, Nida Mohammed Nadim, the minister of higher education in Afghanistan, declared that the university ban was required to stop gender mixing because he thought certain courses being taught went against Islamic norms.

India has emphasized the need to fight terrorism and uphold the rights of women, children, and minorities in its plea for the establishment of an inclusive government structure in Afghanistan.

India has stated time and time again that terrorist acts against any nation cannot take place on Afghani soil and has refused to recognize the authority of the Taliban. More than 500 projects in vital areas including power, water supply, road connections, healthcare, education, agriculture, and capacity building are part of India’s development cooperation with Afghanistan, which is divided among the 34 war-torn provinces of the nation.
