Taliban bans women from universities until they learn not to ‘go against Islam’

The Taliban has banned females from universities and higher education learning in Afghanistan. Minister Nida Mohammad Nadim opuses female education entirely and has pledged to eliminate secular schooling.

Nadim, former provincial governor, police chief and military commander, was appointed minister in October by the supreme Taliban leader. Nadim blamed women: “We told girls to have proper hijab but they didn’t and they wore dresses like they are going to a wedding ceremony” he said.

“Girls were studying agriculture and engineering, but this didn’t match Afghan culture. Girls should learn, but not in areas that go against Islam and Afghan honor” he continued, alleging that schools could possibly reopen for women when the issues are “resolved.”

The Associated Press notes that “the Taliban made similar promises about high school access for girls, saying classes would resume for them once ‘technical issues’ around uniforms and transport were sorted out, but girls remain shut out of classrooms.”

The Associated Press reports:

Despite initially promising a more moderate rule respecting rights for women and minorities, the Taliban have widely implemented their interpretation of Islamic law, or Sharia, since they seized power in August 2021.

They have banned girls from middle school and high school, barred women from most fields of employment and ordered them to wear head-to-toe clothing in public. Women are also banned from parks and gyms. At the same time Afghan society, while largely traditional, has increasingly embraced the education of girls and women over the past two decades.

Global pressure has been placed on the Taliban to reconsider its decision, as well as backlash domestically, such as from the country’s popular cricket players.

One local media outlet reported that males at Nangarhar Medical University walked out in solidarity and refused to sit for exams until women are reinstated.

Former Marine on Afghanistan: ‘Biden lied…Americans still there that want to get out’

Afghanistan Evac Flight

Former Force Recon Marine Chad Robichaux says bluntly of the Afghanistan withdrawal: “Biden lied.” Author of “Saving Aziz” Robichaux told “Just the News, No Noise” TV show that President Joe Biden was completely dishonest with the American public when he said, among other things, that Americans were able to evacuate after the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

“There’s Americans still there that want to get out” he said. “There’s 75,000 Afghan allies who are vulnerable to be being beaten and interrogated for what they know about America and some are executed for serving America.”

“Last week the Taliban announced that women are no longer allowed to see male doctors,” Robichaux said. “But women aren’t allowed to be doctors, nor are women allowed to be educated. So there’s no women’s health care in Afghanistan right now.”

During the withdrawal, Americans were simply thwarted from evacuating. “The State Department controlled only the airport, which meant that the Taliban controlled the outer perimeter of who got in and out of the airport,” Robichaux explained.

“The Taliban is out there checking people’s IDs, beating people, taking their passports away, and killing people in the streets,” he continued. “If you are an American and wanting to go to the airport, you have to go through a Taliban checkpoint.”

In his book, “Saving Aziz,” Robichaux goes into detail about the tragic ordeal and how he and a team of other service members came together to save the lives of some of the people trying to avoid becoming victims of the Taliban.
