Taliban minister asked when Afghan girls can return to school - BBC News

The Taliban’s health minister has said there are “some concerns” about the separate system of teenage girls’ education in Afghanistan.

It is 290 days since the Taliban banned girls from attending secondary schools.

Taliban Public Health Minister Dr Qalandar Ebad said: “The teaching of Islam states that men and women are equal, that is clear… but we have some concerns about the syllabus, we have some concerns about the hijab and some concerns about the separate system.”

It comes as human rights groups have criticised an all-male gathering of more than 4,500 of Taliban leaders, clerics and leaders for not addressing concerns about the rights of women and girls.
