Web Desk(TVM)Updated: Tuesday Oct 19, 2021

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafazi, who was shot by the Pakistan Taliban in 2012, urged that Taliban leaders allow girls to attend school.

In her letter to Taliban authorities, Malala says “ You assured the world that would respect the rights of girls and women – but you are denying millions their right to learn. Reverse the de-facto ban on girls’ education and re-open girls’ secondary schools immediately.”

Malala also asked other Arab nations to stand with girls in Afgghanistan, where the Taliban after taking control has prevented girls 12 and older from going to school.

The Taliban told the international community it was setting up “safe learning environment” before all universities and schools are laid open to girls.
