The Taliban has declared that Afghan women will be allowed to study at university, but not in the same room as men.

 

The group’s acting higher education minister also said that male teachers will not be permitted to teach female students under new rules.

The announcement comes amid concerns that Afghanistan’s return to Taliban rule will curb progress made towards women’s rights.

But the group has been reassuring Afghan citizens and the international community that it will not return to severely restricting the rights of women, as it did during its previous rule, but many doubt the militants’ sincerity on this issue.

‘The people of Afghanistan will continue their higher education in the light of Sharia law in safety without being in a mixed male and female environment,’ Abul Baqi Haqqani, the Taliban’s acting minister for higher education, said in a meeting on Sunday, adding: ‘men will not be allowed to teach girls.’
