KABUL, March 23 (Reuters) - The Taliban on Wednesday backtracked on their announcement that high schools would open for girls, saying they would remain closed until a plan was drawn up in accordance with Islamic law for them to reopen.

The u-turn took many by surprise, leaving students in tears and drawing condemnation from humanitarian agencies, rights groups and diplomats at a time when the Taliban administration is seeking international recognition.


Teachers and students from three high schools around the capital Kabul said girls had returned in excitement to campuses on Wednesday morning, but were ordered to go home. They said many students left in tears.

"We all became totally hopeless when the principal told us, she was also crying," said a student, not being named for security reasons.

The last time the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, from 1996 to 2001, they banned female education and most employment.


The international community has made the education of girls a key demand for any future recognition of the Taliban administration, which took over the country in August as foreign forces withdrew.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the Taliban's decision was "a profound disappointment and deeply damaging for Afghanistan."

"The denial of education not only violates the equal rights of women and girls to education," Guterres said in a statement. "I urge the Taliban de facto authorities to open schools for all students without any further delay."


The Ministry of Education had announced last week that schools for all students, including girls, would open around the country on Wednesday after months of restrictions on education for high school-aged girls.

On Tuesday evening a Ministry of Education spokesman released a video congratulating all students on their returning to class.

I really thought they had evolved some how, but this is complete retardation. They are illiterate assholes, and same goes to the people who defend this decision. Phir boltay hain kay west main musalmanon ko bura kion kaha jata hay.

OIC has on its charter goals on women empowerment and education, so it has a formal obligation to withhold support to Afghanistan until they role this ignorant, idiotic and moronic decision back.

Allah hidayat day in jahilon ko.

Their current statement suggests that they will reopen the secondary schools and colleges etc. once they conclude upon the matters of Purdah etc.

کیا شریعتِ اسلامی کی یہ تشریح درست ہے کہ خواتین صرف جماعت ششم تک تعلیم حاصل کرسکتی ہیں؟
کسی معقول وجہ کے بغیر میرے علم میں ایسی کوئی پابندی نہیں ہے​

مولوی کونسی شریعت اسلامی پر چل رہے ہیں؟
جمہوری شریعت پر چلنے والوں نے کس اصول کے تحت لڑکیوں کے ساتھ ساتھ لڑکوں کے سکول بھی اصطبل بنا رکھے ہیں!؛

لندن سے جمہوری شریعت پڑھ کر آنے والے خاندان کے صوبے میں حالات سب سے زیادہ خراب ہیں
