The decision to postpone a return of girls to school in higher levels appeared to be a concession to the rural and deeply tribal backbone of the hardline Taliban movement. In many parts of the countryside, they are reluctant to send their daughters to school. 

"In some rural areas, a brother will disown a brother in the city if he finds out that he is letting his daughters go to school," said Hashimi, who said the Taliban leadership is trying to decide how to open education for girls beyond Grade 6 countrywide.
