Previously, the Taliban* ordered all local and international non-governmental organizations in Afghanistan to suspend the employment of female workers.
Earlier, Afghan media reported that the Ministry of Higher Education in the Taliban government had ordered a break from the education of female students in private and public universities in Afghanistan. Afghanistan’s Minister of Higher Education said that the education of girls in secular universities violates Islamic laws and violates Islamic traditions.
