Malala fears Taliban will keep girls out of school


LONDON: Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai on Sunday said she was worried that the Taliban’s restriction on young ladies’ schooling in Afghanistan would not be impermanent, as guaranteed.

Ms. Yousafzai told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show that “I’m anxious about the possibility that this boycott that they have declared right since they’re calling impermanent may not really be brief”. A comparative boycott in 1996 “went on for a considerable length of time”, she brought up.

Subsequent to holding onto power in August, the Taliban September prohibited young ladies from getting to optional school while requesting young men once again to class.

The Taliban have guaranteed that they will permit young ladies to return whenever they have guaranteed security and stricter isolation under their translation of Islamic law — yet many are wary.

“We’re approaching the Taliban to promptly permit young ladies to approach their total instruction, we’re approaching G20 pioneers and other world pioneers to guarantee that young ladies’ privileges are secured in Afghanistan,” said Mr. Yousafzai.

The 24-year-old dissident, who uncovered on Twitter this week that she had sealed the deal with Asser Malik, sent an open letter last month encouraging the boycott to be switched.
