The people of Afghanistan have been demanding for several months that girls and women should be given access to education and should have the freedom to work in the country.

The people of Afghanistan have been demanding for several months that girls and women should be given access to education and should have the freedom to work in the country. The Taliban-led administration of Afghanistan has barred girls and women from getting access to basic human rights.

The restrictions that the Taliban has imposed suggest that women do not have access to an education and work in the country. The people of Afghanistan raised the topic at an ongoing international meeting of the UN in Doha. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, served as the chairman of the meeting.

The representatives of more than 20 countries and organizations attended the UN meeting hosted in Doha. The meeting took place on Monday, May 1, 2023. During the meeting, the Afghan representatives argued for the restoration of basic rights for women. The people claimed that the women of Afghanistan should get the opportunity to get an education and work in the country.

The Afghan has also argued that the meeting members can not sufficiently represent the women. The women of Afghanistan have urged the international community must make efforts to remove restrictions on women’s education and work. Accordingly, Safiullah Momand, a resident of Nangarhar, has come forward with an argument to support women.

Momand claimed that if women face deprivation of education, the people of Afghanistan will have to depend upon other countries to satisfy their needs.

They have also urged the international community not to stop the country’s humanitarian aid. The experts have claimed that Afghanistan is currently going through a crisis and needs the international community’s support. Taliban claims that they seek to maintain friendly relations with the international community.

On the other hand, they are exercising unreasonable restraints and violating the human rights of the people of Afghanistan. Specifically, the women of Afghanistan are struggling with the restrictions and rules that the Taliban has imposed on them
