Piers Morgan was joined by Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen to talk about girls’ education. After the Taliban gained control again of Afghanistan in 2021, some female rights have been removed and Piers grilled his guest on why there were reports of young girls not being allowed to go to school. The controversial guest whipped fans of his show up into a frenzy with many slamming the host for even giving Suhail airtime.
Piers began by asking: “We have talked about this, just for the record, you have two daughters, do they go to school?”
Suhail replied: “Of course, yes. They are observing any hijab, that means we have not denied…”
Before he could finish, Piers chimed in, which resulted in the pair speaking over each other for a prolonged time, making it hard for viewers to understand what was being asked or said.
Eventually, Piers regained control and asked: “Wait a minute. Your daughters get an education because they do what you tell them.”

As the interview unfolded, the guest said there were “four billion girls” who went to primary school, but when it came to the “issue of secondary school” girls were under “consideration”.
He added: “We have never said they are banned.”
“When you say they are under consideration, what do you mean?” Piers questioned.
“They are not currently in school. Let them all go back to school.”
The TalkTV host was visibly getting riled up, and did not accept his statement the Taliban were going to “talk” about girls going back to school.
He demanded to know: “What is there to talk about?
“A girl should be entitled to go to school in Afghanistan the same way a boy does.”
Washing over Piers’ probing statement, Suhail said they were working on a “mechanism” so girls could have the same access to education.

“Wtaf??? The freaking Taliban? Sweet,” @bluemartini1970 chimed in.
User @Onlinekarateman added: “Piers Morgan gives Taliban airtime, great.”
Dave Kilroty was shocked and commented: “Shouldn’t have unspeakable barbarians like that on TV. Shouldn’t have the Taliban on either.”
Christopher Burke was not a fan and shared: “You mean Piers Morgan giving the Taliban fake ‘street cred’ by interviewing them on prime-time TV? That’s disgusting. Piers Morgan’s always been disgusting!”
