Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry had a telephonic conversation with Pakistani Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai. During the conversation, Malala expressed her concern over the situation of women in Afghanistan as the Taliban took over Kabul on Sunday and said that Pakistan should play its role in women’s education in Afghanistan.

Malala said that she also wrote a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan in this regard.

Fawad Chaudhry assured Malala that Pakistan will play its role in promoting education in Afghanistan. He also said that Pakistan is providing educational facilities to almost 6,000 Afghan refugee children.


Yesterday, Malala tweeted, “We watch in complete shock as Taliban takes control of Afghanistan. I am deeply worried about women, minorities and human rights advocates.”

“Global, regional and local powers must call for an immediate ceasefire, provide urgent humanitarian aid and protect refugees and civilians,” she added.
