Taliban say female students to study in separate classrooms

Kabul, Aug 30 (TIWN) Abdul Baqi Haqqani, who has been appointed by the Taliban as the acting Minister for Afghanistan's Ministry of Higher Education, said classrooms for female students will be separate from those of males.

Speaking with officials of public and private universities and employees of the Ministry on Sunday, Haqqani said Afghan girls have the right to study but they cannot study in the same classrooms with boys, Tolo News reported.  He added that a safe educational environment will be provided for female students.  Meanwhile, the former Ministry of Higher Education, Abbas Basir, at the same event said that the Taliban has promised to preserve the past two decades’ achievements in the education sector and in the higher education ministry, the report said.  “The higher education ministry has made better progress than any other departments in terms of system-making,” Basir said.  Union officials from private universities, however, said most of the laws have been imposed on the private universities and they urged the new acting minister to address this problem in the next government.
