According to the notification, it will be mandatory for girl students and teachers to wear hijab in the institutions.

Murtaza Solangi has compared the government’s decision with the Taliban’s decision. Last year, the Taliban also made it mandatory for women in Afghanistan to wear the hijab in public. Solangi said, The toothless dentist (Pakistan President Arif Alvi) who acts like an activist of fascist party should answer how his government is implementing Taliban rule in PoK.
