The Taliban formed the government on Thursday and said public universities in Afghanistan would soon reopen in the country.

Tolo News reported that the information came from Abdul Baki Haqqani, who has been appointed as the acting minister of higher education after the Taliban’s takeover of the group from Afghanistan.

“Preparations and plans are being completed and soon universities belonging to the Islamic Emirate will also be opened and education will continue,” Haqqani said.

Back in August, all universities were closed after the Taliban’s siege of Afghanistan, but private universities have reopened, Tolo News reported.

This comes after the caretaker government of Afghanistan signed an agreement with a consortium of private universities to facilitate educational opportunities for students.

But the Taliban are still being slammed by Afghan students for delaying the process of reopening universities.

Omid Moulvi Zada, a student of political science at Kabul University, said, “We’ve seen it many times: they say they’re working on a plan, but it’s been over a month and the plan hasn’t been finalized.” Is.”

In another recent development, a group of women in Kabul on Friday protested the closure of schools and colleges for female students, saying it violated their fundamental rights in Afghan society.

Teachers and lecturers from Kabul’s schools and universities said the closure of schools and universities is a serious concern that could deeply affect the future of girls’ education in Afghanistan and that the Taliban should pay serious attention to it.

As reported by TOLOnews, the girl students expressed that education is their Islamic and legal right and no one should take this right from them.
