Afghani Athlete Calls Taliban’s University Education Ban “Disaster”They are getting more problematic.
If you know anything about Afghanistan, then you should know that the word ‘women’s rights’ does not exist in that country and we can blame the Taliban for it. Since their takeover, they never have missed a chance to ban everything and anything that is related to women and girls without any valid reason. Recently, the Taliban banned university education for women. After the announcement, Nilofar Bayat, the former captain of Afghanistan’s wheelchair basketball team called the education ban a “disaster.”
The former captain of Afghanistan’s wheelchair basketball team, Nilofar Bayat recently criticised the Taliban’s ban on university education for women. The athlete is also a two-time war victim in Afghanistan, she called the ban on women’s education a disaster. In an interview, Bayat said that she feels the Taliban is pushing women with such restrictions. She mentioned that she thinks women are no longer a part of Afghanistan’s society as they are adding new rules and new restrictions every day.
It's 1.5 yrs schools were closed for girls, now it's time for universities. Taliban's snatching rights of women. Everyday new restrictions are put on women, human rights orgs & other counties shouldn't leave us alone:Nilofar Bayat, Former captain Afghan wheelchair basketball team pic.twitter.com/Py5uOGIAf7

As a father to daughters, I cannot imagine a world in which they’re denied an education.
The women of Afghanistan have so much to offer. Denying them access to university is a grave step backwards.
The world is watching. We will judge the Taliban by their actions.

Many countries are criticising the Taliban’s decision as it violates basic human rights.
