Dozens of students in the western province of Herat and the central province of Bamyan held demonstrations in the wake of Friday's attack on the Kaaj educational center.
The protestors called for students’ rights to be ensured and for girls to have access to education.
In Herat, the protest was disturbed by warning shots fired by the Islamic Emirate.
“Many girls were coming out and were raising their voices. Silence is betrayal and education is our right,” said Fariba Samim, a student.
“We say to the government that women should have access to their basic rights, including rights to education and political inclusion,” said Nagina Ahmadi, a student.
A similar protest was launched by the students in Bamyan province. Many of the protesters were women, and they called for educational rights to be protected.
“We wanted to the show the world that we girls want the right to education,” said Nargis Noori, a student.
The women’s rights defenders argued that demonstrating is considered a civil right of citizens and that they should be allowed to raise their voices.
“These are the women who have protested for their education and freedom rights,” said Roya Sharifi, a women’s rights activist.
Earlier, a group of women held a demonstration in Kabul in reaction to the attack on the Kaaj educational center.
The Ministry of Interior reported 25 dead and 31 wounded in the blast that took place on Friday morning at Kaaj educational center in PD 13 of Kabul city.
