<<Appeal at UN for world leaders to protect Afghan girls' education.
After pleading with world leaders at the United Nations to protect the education and rights of women in Afghanistan a year after the Taliban took over, Somaya Faruqi, the former captain of the Afghan girls' robotics team, broke down in tears backstage. <I was in classroom last year, but this year girls are not in classroom. Class-rooms are empty, and they are at their homes. So it was too hard to control myself, control my feelings,> Faruqi, aged 20, told the Reuters news agency. Faruqi, who now attends the Missouri Univer-sity of Science and Technology, left Afghanistan in August last year when the Taliban seized power and the United States and allies withdrew forces after a 20-year war. Speaking at the UN in New York this week as world leaders gather for the high-level meeting of the UN General Assembly, she urged them to unite and demand the reopening of girls’ schools and the protection of their rights. “This week, you are all here to propose solutions to transform education to all, but you must not forget those who left behind, those who are not lucky enough to be at school at all,” said Faruqi. <Show your solidarity with me and millions of Afghan girls.>
Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by a Taliban gunman in Pakistan as she left school in 2012, chided heads of state for the lack of action. <Most of you know what exactly needs to be done. You must not make small, stingy and short-term pledges, but commit to uphold the right to complete education and close the funding gap once and for all,> Yousafzai said on Monday.
Last year, she pleaded with the world not to compromise on the protection of Afghan women’s rights following the Taliban takeover.

<<Police fire tear gas to disperse demo over woman's death: media.
ehran (AFP) – Security forces on Saturday fired tear gas to disperse protesters in northwest Iran after the death of a woman arrested in Tehran by the Islamic republic's <morality police>, local media reported. Mahsa Amini, 22, was on a visit with her family to the Iranian capital when she was detained on Tuesday by the police unit responsible for enforcing Iran's strict dress code for women, including the wearing of the headscarf in public. She was declared dead on Friday by state television after having spent three days in a coma.
Her body was laid to rest in her hometown of Saghez, 460 kilometres (285 miles) from Tehran in northwestern Kurdistan province, on Saturday morning, according to Fars news agency. <Following the funeral ceremony, some people left the scene while others remained, chanting slogans demanding detailed investigations into the dimen-sions of the story,> the agency said. <The protesters then gathered in front of the governor's office and chanted more slogans but were dispersed when security forces fired tear gas,> it added.
State television broadcast images on Friday purportedly showing her falling to the ground inside a large hall full of women while arguing with one of the female instructors about her dress. In a statement on Friday, Tehran police insisted <there was no physical encounter> between officers and Amini. It said Amini was among a number of women who had been taken to a police station for <instruction> on the dress code on Tuesday. <She suddenly fainted while with other visitors in the hall,> the statement said. Earlier, President Ebrahim Raisi ordered an inquiry into Amini's case while the judiciary said it would form a special task force to investigate. Head of Tehran medical examiner's office on Saturday told state television that investigations into the cause of death would take up to three weeks to complete. Amini's death comes amid growing controversy both inside and outside Iran over the conduct of the morality police, known formally as the Gasht-e Ershad (Guidance Patrol). In July, a video of a woman standing in front of one of the force's vans plea-ding for her daughter's release went viral on social media.
Following the 1979 Islamic revolution, the law requires all women, regardless of nationality or religious belief, to wear a hijab that covers the head and neck while concealing the hair. Many women, however, have pushed the boundaries over the past two decades by allowing the hijab to slide back and reveal more hair, especially in Tehran and other major cities.>>

<<Iranian authorities plan to use facial recognition to enforce new hijab law.
The Iranian government is planning to use facial recognition tech-nology on public transport to identify women who are not complying with a strict new law on wearing the hijab, as the regime continues its increasingly punitive crackdown on women's dress. The secretary of Iran's Headquarters for Promoting Virtue and Preventing Vice, Mohammad Saleh Hashemi Golpayegani, announced in a recent interview that the government was planning to use surveillance technology against women in public places following a new decree signed by the country’s hardline president, Ebrahim Raisi, on restricting women’s clothing. The decree was signed on 15 August, a month after the 12 July national <Hijab and Chastity Day>, which sparked countrywide protests by women who posted videos of them-selves on social media with their heads uncovered on streets and on buses and trains. In recent weeks, the Iranian authorities have responded with a spate of arrests, detentions and forced confessions on television. <The Iranian government has long played with the idea of using facial recognition to identify people who violate the law,> said Azadeh Akbari, a researcher at the University of Twente, in the Netherlands. <The regime combines violent 'old-fashioned' forms of totalitarian control dressed up in new technologies.> The hijab, a head-covering worn by Muslim women, became mandatory after Iran's revolution in 1979. Yet, over the decades since, women have pushed the limits of the stipulated dress code. Some of the women arrested for defying the new decree were identified after vi-deos were posted online of them being harassed on public transport for not wearing the hijab properly. One, 28-year-old Sepideh Rashno, was arrested after a video circulated on social media of her being berated for <improper dress> by a fellow passenger, who was then forced off the vehicle by bystanders intervening on Rashno's behalf. According to the human rights group Hrana, Rashno was beaten after her arrest and subsequently forced to apologise on television to the passenger who harassed her. Rashno is not the first person to suffer violent repression as a result of going viral on the internet.>>

<<Video: Afghan woman cries for help after torture, forced marriage to Taliban official.
A young woman cries and pleads for her life. In a 19-minute video published by Afghan media on August 30, a former medical student named Elaha showed images she says came from being beaten, raped and tortured by Saeed Khosty, a former Taliban official, during the past six months. She says Khosty threatened her family and forced her to marry him. The video, whose authenticity was confirmed to the FRANCE 24 Observers by two people who have been in contact with the young woman, sheds light on the abuses of power and violence towards women in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. <After publishing this video, it's possible that no one will see me again, I might die,> Elaha says in the video, which she recorded during several sessions while in captivity. She passed the recordings, along with accompanying photos and videos showing her with Khosty, to activists and journalists who published them online. Activists say she is now in safety in an undisclosed location.>>

<<'I don't want to be illiterate': Afghan girls defy Taliban school ban.
Despite international pressure, Taliban authorities have banned teenage girls from going to school in most Afghan provinces, denying an entire generation access to education. Some girls have chosen to defy the ban, taking huge risks to pursue their hopes and dreams. FRANCE 24's Catherine Norris Trent and Tarek Kai visited a secret school in Kabul where determined activists brave the Taliban’s rules to give young women the education they aspire to.
Despite the ban, some schools have chosen to remain open to girls, in secret. FRANCE 24 visited one such school, where some 230 young girls receive a few hours of classes each day. <Most of the time we are afraid on the street, on the road. But I don't want to be illiterate,> said one pupil, referring to her fears of being caught on the way to school. <I have a lot of dreams and I have a lot of hopes,> said another. <I don't want to sit at home because sitting at home is wasting time.> >>
