Following the reopening of several girls' schools above the sixth grade in the province of Paktia, social media users launched a campaign to reopen girls' schools all over the country.
"Please don't wait for the Taliban order to reopen girls' schools above the 6th grade, support Afghan women, and open girls' schools," they pleaded.
Some citizens of the nation welcomed this campaign and demanded that girls' schools above the sixth grade reopen across the country immediately.
"If God has granted boys the right to education, then girls have the same right to education,” said Atiqullah, a resident of Baghlan.
"Opening the doors of schools is opening the gate of light, opening the route to science and knowledge; it is the natural right, the legal right, and the Islamic right of girls," said Suhrab, a resident of Faryab.
"We ask high ranking officials to reopen girls' schools, they need knowledge and education,” said Dawood, another resident of Faryab.
Some students stated that just starting a campaign is unacceptable and asked the Islamic Emirate to reopen girls' schools as soon as possible.
"I must say that this campaign alone is not enough and the families themselves should strive to do something in this regard,” said Taiba, a student.
"Families themselves should strive to help all their girls,” said Hasina, another student.
Although it has been over a year since girls' schools above the sixth grade were shut down, the Islamic Emirate has consistently said that the decision to reopen girls' schools is up to the leadership of the Islamic Emirate.
