“The Taliban is a predominantly Pashtun, Islamic fundamentalist group that ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, when a US-led toppled the regime for providing refuge to alQaeda and Osama Bin Laden.” (Laub, 2014 p.1). ES2: SB: ES1: “More than 220,000 Syrians have been killed since the start of the war in their country.”
Afghanistan has a population of 34.66 million, with a birth rate of 4.65 births per woman. Throughout the years the country suffered through a civil war which has resulted in prolonging many developments to occur within the country. As a result of the Taliban and their power, including the devastating effects on the country, there have been many negative and lasting effects such as the literacy rates between men and woman. During the Taliban takeover, woman’s rights were seen as insignificant, therefore, access to education for women was very difficult to obtain since it was forbidden. This was powered by the Taliban’s belief of gender roles and the ideology that the duty of a woman was to stay home and take care of their family.
Along with illiteracy and ignorance, the Taliban ensures the apartheid among gender. The Taliban leaders believed that if they gave women the right to be educated or any other freedom, they would lose the authority of their rank. The Taliban’s rigid principles were not only the revival of the Islamic laws; it was their internal political battle. The madarassa sphere thus became a powerful symbol of manhood and a reassertion of the students’ commitment to jihad. By controlling women’s bodies and denying them rights of freedom, Taliban gained a false legitimacy for themselves.
The Taliban took away women’s voice, vision, and mobility; the United States of America’s removal of the Taliban, brought back rights for women. The ISAF repaired Kabul from the Taliban’s impacts on embassies, schools, and hospitals. Laila went from getting an education, to being beaten for walking unaccompanied outside, to teaching female children. The political influences caused women rights to fluctuate between positive and negative
Daoud Khan took over the government in a bloodless coup and reformed the government. However, the Russians overthrew Khan, and life in Afghanistan became more difficult because of the curfews and tanks. After the Russians left, a war occurred as different factions tried to take over Afghanistan, and eventually the Taliban won. Although it was a joyous time when the fighting stopped, life became even worse as the culture was destroyed by the restrictions the Taliban placed on the people, such as banning music and dancing. The Taliban also started to massacre the Hazaras.
Despite the contrasting environment, private school students are no different than public school students. In an online manifesto, If You Send Your Kid to Private school you are bad, Allison Benedikt, an executive editor states, “But many others go private for religious reasons, or because their kids have behavioral or learning issues, or simply because the public school in their district is not so hot”.This proves that private schools are not filled with angels, but rather kids who have behavioral issues and need that extra help. In senior writer and editor John S Kiernan’s, online article, Private Schools vs. Public Schools - Experts Weigh In, Patrick J. Wolf, Ph.D, proclaims, “Private schools also are becoming more diverse, as their enrollments increasingly include minority and low-income students”. Similar to a public school, private schooling have their low, medium and upper class students. Many have a common assumption that students are privates are academically more advanced than regular school.
Sadly this is the farthest thing from the truth. After the Nazis took Jews into concentration camps, and brutally abused them we do not think that abuse like that is still going on. Sadly though it goes on every single day.We are so ignorant to the fact that everyday women in Afghanistan go through the greatest level of physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse every single day of their lives. To begin if Afghanistan was still the way it was 80 years ago it may actually be a good country to live in. In 1919 Afghan women were actually allowed to have a say in the government and were allowed to vote.
A young girl, an artist, and a computer professional is an unlikely trio, differing in background, culture and purpose, but they are bound through their common outreach in breaking the silence, challenging authority, facing oppression and its concomitant consequences, still ultimately speaking out against power that humans should be treated as humans. Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani girl who has been active against the Taliban as a BBC blogger since she was 11, the youngest laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize at age 17, wanted to be a student. When the Taliban forbade girls to go to school, while most girls submitted in fear of their authority, she stood bold and adamant in her belief that it was her right to receive education. She continued to attend school, until the Taliban sent men to stop her school bus and shot her in the head. The Taliban is a fundamentalist Islamic society active mainly in Afghanistan, recruiting poorly educated youths from refugee camps and religious schools as members.
Women and young girls were discouraged to receive a proper education as men and young boys. “I know you’re still young, but I want you to understand and learn this now, Marriage can wait, education cannot. You’re a very, very bright girl. Truly, you are. You can be anything you want, Laila I know that when this war is over, Afghanistan is going to need you as much as its men, maybe even more, because a society has no chance of success if its women are uneducated, Laila.
