Taliban allowed women, to study in university but kept one condition
The Taliban government started in Afghanistan
It has started showing its colors as soon as the rule of the Taliban government started in Afghanistan. In today's era, where education is the right of every human being, the Taliban is giving it to Afghan girls as a favor. The Taliban have allowed women to pursue higher education, but have also placed many conditions. The higher education minister in the new Taliban government says women can study in universities up to the postgraduate level, but classes will be separate for boys and girls and Islamic clothing will be compulsory.
The minister, Abdul Baqi Haqqani, laid out the new policies at a news conference on Sunday, days after Afghanistan's new rulers formed an all-man Taliban government. Haqqani said university girl students would be required to wear the hijab but did not say whether this would mean only a mandatory headscarf or that they would have to cover their full faces.
"We will not allow boys and girls to study together," he said. "We will not allow co-education," Haqqani said the subjects being taught in universities will also be reviewed. The Taliban had banned music and art during their previous rule.
Significantly, under the Taliban regime, strict restrictions are imposed on women, including not studying and not leaving the house. Although this time the Taliban has said that it will give some rights to women, but people do not trust their words.
