The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa education department has taken a specific measure by prohibiting the practice of taking photographs during events held at girls’ schools.
This decision follows reports of complaints received through the citizen portal, which raised concerns regarding photography during these events.
Additionally, the education department has issued directives to all schools, underscoring the significance of having only female officers as chief guests at these occasions.
The primary objective of this initiative is to create a comfortable and appropriate environment for the girls and women participating in these gatherings. The department has made it unequivocally clear that no one, presumably referring to attendees or participants, will be permitted to capture photos during these school events.
It is noteworthy that in previous years, several colleges and universities in the region have enforced rules pertaining to dress codes. This indicates that authorities are taking measures to ensure a certain level of decorum and ambiance during educational and social events involving girls and women in these institutions.
