According to the government, “This judgment also goes against the fundamental Sharia rights of Afghan women.” The most important of these rights is the right to education which enables women to contribute to the prosperity, growth, peace and stability of their nation and people, the statement said.

The Afghan government has also been criticized by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for barring Afghan women from attending college. In a statement, OIC Secretary-General Hossein Ibrahim voiced worries over the choice to permanently bar Afghan women from attending institutions.

“The Afghan government’s choice worries the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. The Secretary-General has frequently warned Afghan officials of the repercussions of such actions as has his envoy to Afghanistan.”
