Women's education vital for progress of nations: Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri

Dr Hussain Mohi ud Din Qadri statement about Afghanistan women

President of Minhaj-ul-Quran International Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri has said that robbing women of their right to education is not a discretionary power of any individual or a party. It is a globally recognised right of each human being. He said that Islam rather puts an emphasis on getting education by declaring it as a duty of each man and woman. He said that authorities of brotherly Islamic country Afghanistan must realise the importance and inevitability of education because the future of coming generations is at stake. The progress, stability and prosperity of Afghanistan, he said, depends upon education.

Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that Afghans have already suffered a lot and now all attention and energies must be focused on ameliorating their hardships. He said that whatever promises Afghan authorities have made to the world regarding the protection and education of women must be honored.

President MQI said that Islam emphasizes upon imparting education to all humans irrespective of gender discrimination. The closure and ban of female students in Afghanistan is a very serious matter. The states involved in the reconstruction of Afghanistan should urge the government to give priority to the women education.
