80 schoolgirls poisoned after being poisoned in Northern Afghanistan

  Mohammad Rahmani, director of the provincial department of education said that the incident of poisoning had occurred in Sangcharak district among female pupils from class 1 to 6.

According to Fox News about 80 girls were hospitalized after being poisoned in the school. According to the reports the incident occurred in the Sar-e-Pul in the north. According to Fox News, 60 children at Naswan-e-Kabod Aab School and 17 children at Naswan-e-Faizabad School have been poisoned.

This attack occurred in the primary schools in Afghanistan on Saturday and Sunday. Both primary schools are near to each other and were the focus of the attack and were attacked by poisoning one after the other," he said, adding, "We shifted the students to the hospital and now they are all fine." Rahmani added that both the schools are near to each other and have been attacked one after another. Initial enquiries show that someone who had a grudge was behind the incident.

They paid a third party to attack the schoolgirls in northern Afghanistan. The department’s investigation is underway. This attack hung a question mark on the safety and security of Afghan women after the Taliban came into power. The freedom and rights of women have been curbed after the Taliban came to power. The right to education and freedom as a citizen of Afghanistan has been snatched away from women. Girls in Afghanistan have been banned from secondary and tertiary education. Girls and women have been banned from visiting amusement parks, public baths, gyms and sports clubs. Women have been banned from working in NGO offices.

Women would be flogged if showing an inch or two under the burqa. They are beaten if they are found to study. Women are stoned to death if adultery was found. The decision by the Taliban to ban women from secondary and tertiary education is a violation of law and basic human rights. The right to education and freedom of living are the two basic rights of a human which he or she is entitled to.

Fox News added that no information was given on how the poisoning occurred or the severity of their injuries.No information regarding the medical condition of the students was shared.

Since the Taliban came to power in August 2021 this incident is the first to happen. This incident questions the freedom and the rights of Afghan women. Fox News added that girls are banned from attending schools after class 6. They are forbidden to do jobs and visit many public places. This incident reminds people of the poisoning of schoolgirls dating back to last November in neighboring Iran. Thousands of people are injured by noxious flames but no word has been put forward as to who or what chemical was behind the incident.
