Women must wear an abaya robe and niqab to cover their faces when attending classes at private colleges and universities, the Taliban have decreed. Also, men and women are to use separate entrances and classes must be segregated by gender.
Taliban orders women attending university to wear an abaya robe and niqab covering most of the face, and classes must be segregated by sex — or at least divided by a curtain.
The Taliban mandated women at private universities wear the niqab and use segregated classes. They must end class early and go to waiting rooms until men leave.
What people are saying?
concrndcitizen Fundamentalist Muslims will tell you the curtain is for the protection of the women. The men can’t focus on their studies control themselves if they can see the women. So are men really raised to be that weak-minded in Muslim countries?
Tariq Bhatti This is better than I was expecting. I was expecting them to indefinitely suspend women’s higher ed while they “work toward” creating dedicated women’s colleges. If you’re not familiar with religious Muslim environs: the side-by-side arrangement is a statement.
