Earlier this week, the Taliban issued a decree that only female teachers would teach girl students. If this is not possible, then elderly teachers of good character can be appointed in their place.
There is no place for women under Taliban rule. The promises made by the Taliban after the occupation have turned out to be false in this regard. After issuing a decree for college and university-going women to wear traditional clothes and niqab, the Taliban have now banned them from playing.
“Afghan women cannot take part in any sport, including cricket, because sporting activities will expose their bodies,” the Taliban said on Wednesday. This information was released by a Taliban spokesman on Wednesday. Ahmadullah Wasiq, deputy head of the Taliban’s Cultural Commission, told the media on Wednesday, 8 September 2021, “Sports activities are not necessary for women, as it threatens to expose the bodies of Afghan women.” Because of this, she cannot take part in any sport including cricket, as sports activities will expose her body.
Earlier this week, the Taliban issued a decree that only female teachers would teach girl students. If this is not possible, then elderly teachers of good character can be appointed in their place. The Taliban issued a decree that girls and women attending private Afghan universities must wear abaya robes (full-length dress) and niqab (a garment that covers the face).
The Taliban have also ordered separate classes for boys and girls. If classes are not run separately, boys and girls have been asked to sit in separate queues and cover them in the middle. The Taliban decree applies to private colleges and universities that have flourished since the end of the Taliban’s first regime in 2001.
Prior to 2001, during the Tabilani regime, women had to remain deprived of education. Not only this, it was mandatory for them to take a male relative along to go out of the house.
Meanwhile, the Taliban on Tuesday announced the formation of a new Afghan government under the leadership of Mullah Hassan Akhund. Mulla Hassan Akhund is the same person who ordered the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddha statue in 2001. Weeks after taking the reins of power in Afghanistan, a Taliban spokesman said it would be an “executive” government and not permanent.
Earlier, Taliban Education Minister Sheikh Maulvi Nurullah Munir had said that PhD and Master’s degrees are not necessary. Mulla is likewise the greatest. Maulvi Noorullah Munir said, ‘Mullas have no degree, yet they are the greatest. You see that the mullahs and the Taliban leaders who have come to power have no PhD degrees, they have no masters degrees, they don’t even have a high school degree, but still they are the greatest.’
