According to recent reports, a private school located in an unknown location has imposed a ban on students speaking Pashto. The school authorities have allegedly issued a notice to parents, notifying them of the new rule.
The notice, which has since caused outrage among the Pashtun community, reportedly states that students caught speaking Pashto will be punished, with repeat offenders facing possible expulsion from the school. The school has yet to provide any justification for the ban.
Many Pashtuns have taken to social media to express their anger at the school’s decision, describing it as discriminatory and an attack on their language and culture. Some have even called for a boycott of the school.
The move has also been condemned by human rights activists, who argue that it violates the students’ right to freedom of expression and their cultural identity. They have called on the authorities to take action against the school and ensure that such discriminatory practices are not allowed to continue. It is unclear at this time whether any legal action will be taken against the school or whether they will reverse the ban on speaking Pashto. However, the incident has once again highlighted the need for greater respect and recognition for the linguistic and cultural diversity of communities across the world.
