Mohammad Ashraf Ghairat, a new chancellor of Kabul University, took to his official Twitter account to make the announcement and wrote—“As long as real Islamic environment is not provided for all, women will not be allowed to come to universities or work. Islam first.”
Ashraf Ghairat said there is a shortage of female teachers, and thus the university is planning for male teachers to teach female students from behind a curtain. He further added that by doing this, an Islamic teaching environment would be created for female students.
Earlier, the Taliban announced that Afghan women will be allowed to attend university as long as they study separately from men. In his last tweet, Ghairat said that the university was considering its options to teach female students.
