Women's education in Afghanistan would be un-Islamic, according to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, who expressed hope that the Taliban leadership will soon enable women to continue their studies. This comes as Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has frequently stated that the world should give the Taliban more time. In an interview, the Pakistan PM said the idea that women should not be educated is just not Islamic. "I think they will allow women to go to schools. It has nothing to do with religion," Imran Khan said.

The Taliban have recently asked male students to enrol in schools, but have said nothing about female students, despite institutions resuming female classes. Despite their vow to safeguard women's rights, the Taliban have disbanded the ministry for women and replaced it with their renowned 'vice and virtue' ministry. The whole Cabinet has also been announced, with no female ministers, demonstrating how the Taliban have broken their vow to give women equal rights.

Imran Khan remarked in an earlier interview, which was his first overseas interview since the Taliban took over Afghanistan, that Afghan women are strong and can demand their rights. He went on to say that it is a mistake to believe that they can be assisted from the outside. 

Imran Khan stated that Pakistan will not make a decision on whether or not to recognise the Taliban administration on its own. Only after discussing with other neighbours will a decision be made. "All of the neighbours will come together to check how things are going. It will be a collective decision whether or not to recognise them "Imran Khan stated the following.

Sooner or later, Afghanistan will have a civil war of the Taliban do not include all factions in the governance, Imran Khan said. "That would mean an unstable, chaotic, Afghanistan and an ideal place for terrorists. That is a worry," he said.
