After the Talibani rule in Afghanistan, the era of decree started
Higher education minister in the Taliban government said on Sunday that women can study at all levels of university, including the post-graduate level. But classes should be divided on gender lines and wearing Islamic dress would be mandatory. Minister Abdul Baqi Haqqani presented the outline of these new policies in a press conference on Sunday. Just days before this, the new rulers of Afghanistan announced the formation of a full-fledged Taliban government, which does not include a single woman. The Taliban has also been criticized for this.
Minister Abdul Baki Haqqani said that female students of the university will have to wear hijab. But did not elaborate on whether it means wearing a scarf only on the head or it will also be mandatory to cover the face. The world is watching how the Taliban, which ran the government in the late 1990s, is going to be different this time. At that time girls and women were kept away from education. Also, he had no participation in public life. The Taliban has said that it has now changed. There has also been a change in them regarding women. However, recently there has been violence against women protesters.
