Taliban: Bans co-education in Herat
Last week, agency of Khama News reported that Taliban officials in Afghanistan’s Herat diocese have ordered to all the government and private universities not to allow both girls and boys to study in the same classes at all under the Taliban rule. Taliban officials reportedly and gived that statement “there is no justification or alternative to continuing co-education.” This was the first fatwa by the Taliban since the capture of Afghanistan on 15 August.
Lecturers in Herat were concerned that due to the small number of girls attending private universities, they would not be able to create separate classes for all girls. This may deprive many girl students of higher education.
