Women’s rights should be based on Afghan culture, Islamic values: Taliban

Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the Taliban’s senior commander, has spoken out in support of women’s education rights, saying that it is the government’s job to ensure that they receive a safe education in the nation.

Stanikzai remarked that women should be given their rights based on Afghan culture and Islamic principles while speaking at a gathering to commemorate the death anniversary of Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour, a former Islamic Emirate commander, according to media reports.

“Women are not allowed to request their inheritance. They are denied the opportunity to receive an education. Where will women learn the lessons of Shariah? In Afghanistan, women form up half of the population “he remarked.

Stanikzai criticized the small budget for economic growth and said that individuals were driven to flee the nation owing to economic difficulties.

“We don’t have a seat in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a seat in the United Nations, or a political office in Europe,” he remarked.

Another Taliban commander, Mullah Mohammad Yaqub, spoke at the same event and denounced the economic restrictions imposed on Afghanistan, according to media reports.

He said that “they placed economic sanctions on Afghanistan and plotted against us in Afghanistan.”

The Taliban’s decision to prohibit female pupils in grades six and up from attending school has sparked considerable national and international condemnation.

Women’s rights and liberties have also been constrained by the Taliban administration, which took over Kabul in August last year, with women generally excluded from the employment due to the economic crisis and limitations.
