Women weep, protest: painful scenes after Taliban banned women’s education

Kabul: Many helpless women in Afghanistan wept and consoled each other after Taliban regime issued orders to universities to stop educating them.

At least a few bolder ones protested against the regime by spray painting “#LetHerLearn” on a wall, suggesting women still have guts to stand up to the oppressive regime.

After Taliban's higher education ministry issued the order pushing women into dark, many women were reportedly seen weeping and consoling each other outside a campus in Kabul.

Videos released by The Associated Press from Afghanistan showed women students weeping after they were told to leave the university and go home.

Nida Mohammad Nadim, the minister for higher education of the Taliban government, on Thursday defended the decision to ban women from universities alongside confirming the ban.

Nadim claimed it was to prevent the mixing of genders in universities and said that some subjects being taught violated the principles of Islam.

Taliban’s order against women’s education invited widespread condemnation from international community with UAE and other Arab nations being the latest to join the chorus to condemn it.

The spokesperson for India’s Ministry of External Affairs Arindam Bagchi expressed concern over the Taliban’s order while supporting the cause of female education in the war-torn nation.

“We have been emphasizing the importance of the establishment of an inclusive and representative government that respects the rights of all Afghans and ensures equal rights of women and girls to participate in all aspects of life in Afghan society, including access to higher education,” Bagchi reportedly said.
