Pakistan is disappointed to learn about the university and higher education suspension for female students in Afghanistan. Pakistan’s position on this issue has been clear and consistent. We strongly believe that every man and woman has the inherent right to education per the injunctions of Islam. We strongly urge the Afghan authorities to revisit this decision.
Taliban ban the higher education of girls in Afghanistan. The Foreign Minister of Pakistan laments the decision of the Afghan regime and officially asserts that it is the right of each girl and woman to receive an education according to the injunctions of Islam. The world all over has condemned the arbitrary decision of the Taliban regime. Many have attributed the decision to deny the fundamental right of women in Afghanistan.
