Taliban: Afghan girls can attend schools but in gender-separated classes

Abdul Baqi Haqqani, acting minister of higher education of the new Taliban government, said, Afghan female students can attend higher education institutions and universities but in gender-separated classes.

As per the report, Haqqani said, “All government-run universities will reopen soon. Higher education authorities are working on regulations as students will return to their classes,”

The minister noted that “boys and girls would not study together, they will be separated,” as the co-education scheme has been against Islamic principles and national values.

The minister noted that the “Islamic dress was also necessary for the female students while attending classes”.

The report came as an Afghan female student who secured a top position at a national university entrance exam this year.

Being affected by the Covid-19 lockdown earlier this year, the Afghan universities were closed after the Taliban takeover of the country in mid-August.

However, many private universities reopened last week after the Taliban announced a caretaker government in Afghanistan.
