What happened:

 On the 15th of August 2021, the Taliban took over Afghanistan and a day later, they entered the presidential palace in Kabul. On the 26th of December 2021, 100 days of Taliban rule and 100 days of the ban on girls’ education were completed in Afghanistan as girls were not allowed to attend educational institutions.

 Various female teachers at the educational institutions in Afghanistan were forced to opt for other job options as they were not allowed to teach in their educational institutions. The acting Deputy Education Minister of Afghanistan, Abdul Hakim Hemat, confirmed a ban on girls secondary school education. However, some schools in the Balkh province are opened, and a few schools were also open in south-eastern Ghazni province. 


 On the other hand, it is pertinent to mention that it has been 100 days since girls above grade six have not been allowed to return to school and Imran Khan, talking about the band on girls education in Afghanistan, said, “If we are not sensitive to the cultural norms of Afghan people, even with stipends people in Afghanistan won’t send their girls to school.” While Malala Yousafzai, the Nobel laureate, tweeted, “I nearly lost my life fighting against the Taliban’s ban on girls’ education.” At the same time, thousands of activists have raised their voices for the Afghan female students.
