Some female graduates have reported that the Taliban are not allowing them to enter universities to complete their documents. On Saturday, May 6, the girls told Hasht-e Subh that the Taliban had instructed them to send male family members to the university to carry out administrative affairs related to their educational documents.
One of these girls, who studied at a state university in Kabul and did not want to be named, said: “Female graduates do not have permission to enter the university and proceed with their certificate and transcript matters.”
She added: “It has been more than two weeks since the process of certificate and transcript matters began, but some students like me have not been able to send their brother or father to the university due to various problems, and as a result, their affairs have not been processed.”
On the other hand, another girl said: “Female students at Afghanistan universities are not even allowed to go to university for a day to proceed with their certificate and transcript matters.”
She added: “It has been three weeks since I was last able to deal with my affairs, and due to my father’s recent passing, my brothers are occupied with finding work to support the family and do not have the time to help with these matters.”
The girls are urging the Taliban to allow female students to go to university to complete their educational documents.
It should be noted that the Taliban Ministry of Higher Education suspended the education of girls in public and private universities until further notice in late 2021.
These Taliban decisions have sparked widespread national and international reactions, with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and many countries around the world calling for the opening of educational opportunities for girls.
