Kabul ∙ The Taliban government has banned female Afghan students from writing university exams. The Ministry of Higher Education has written to the country’s private universities in this regard.
The letter warns that if the women are admitted to the examination to be held next month, they will face strict legal action. Last month, the ministry had ordered a ban on girls’ entry to college. After this, the activities of women’s NGOs were also stopped. Most of the schools attended by girls are closed.
