75% of girl students returned in Afghanistan schools claimed by Taliban

The Taliban government in Afghanistan has said that 75 percent of girl students have resumed their classes in schools.

On Friday, Speaking at the Centre for Afghanistan, Africa (CAMEA) and the Middle East in Pakistan's Islamabad, the Taliban's acting foreign minister Amir Khan Muttaqi commented while replying to questions about girls' education in Afghanistan, as per a report by Dawn news.

After taking control of the war-ruin country in August this year, the Taliban closed schools for girls and boys. From 18th September, the Taliban allowed boys from classes 6-12 and started to attend schools by male teachers.

Some schools reopen for girls up to class 6, and women were also allowed to visit university. But high schools are close for girls, and the Islamic emirate claimed in September that they would be allowed to resume class for all girls as soon as possible.

The Taliban has received a lot of criticism from the global community for restricting education for girls.

The Dawn report said.

On Friday, Amir Khan Muttaqi, foreign minister, also said that it was the global community's duplicity to emphasize women's education rather than focus on teachers' salaries as salary disbursement became difficult due to Afghanistan's resources frozen by the Western countries,

Amir Khan Muttaqi, the foreign minister, added as many as 500,000 civil servants in Afghanistan were paid, and no one was fired because of different political views. No woman has been removed, the acting foreign minister also claimed, according to the report.

But, many media reports have suggested that women are still not allowed to go to work. Several of them have protested to request the rights to employment and education.

On the other hand, most girls in Afghanistan who depend on the public education systems also remain at the highlight.

Abdul Hakeim, the chief of staff for the minister of education, said in November.

"Amendments will be made based on our new laws. Islamic scholars will make the decisions,"
