Women, both students and teachers are banned from entering the Kabul University, DW reports.

According to the new head of the university, Mohammad Ashraf Ghairat, the ban will be maintained “until the real Islamic environment is provided for all.” A number of employees opposed the innovation.

A few days earlier, the radical Islamist movement Taliban had ordered the gradual opening of secondary schools only for boys and their male teachers. Thus, the Islamic Republic is now the only country in the world where girls are not allowed to attend these schools. In the 1990s, when Afghanistan was under Taliban control, the country already imposed a ban on women's education.

The publication notes that the current head of Kabul University replaced the dismissed former rector, Dr. Mohammad Osman Babury, a few days earlier. Earlier, Ghairat, a supporter of the Taliban, called for the killing of journalists, calling them “spies”.

The United Nations Educational and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has responded to a ban on women's education. The organization called on the Islamist Taliban movement to ensure that the right to education for girls is respected in Afghanistan and to allow female teachers to return to school.
