Afghan mothers can have their name on children’s birth certificate
The Afghan government has finally decided to put the mothers’ names on the birth certificate of their children.
According to the details, the cabinet’s legal affairs committee, chaired by Vice President Mohammad Sarwar Danish, agreed to a proposal to change the law and allow both the parents’ names to be written on the birth certificate of their children.
In a statement Danish said,
“The decision to include the mother’s name in the ID card is a big step towards gender equality and the realization of women’s rights.”
However, the legal amendment still needs approval from Afghanistan’s parliament and must then be signed off by the president.
The proposal was drafted by Naheed Farid, an independent lawmaker who chairs the parliamentary commission on women’s affairs.
It should be mentioned here that this step came as the Afghan government prepared for talks with the Taliban following a US peace deal with the militants signed in February.
