Taliban to remove varsity subjects contradicting Sharia Law

Moscow, Sept 13 (UNI/Sputnik): The Taliban’s Ministry of Higher Education announced that it will remove subjects considered as running counter to the Islam’s Sharia law from the curriculum of Afghanistan’s universities.

“Each subject that is against Islamic laws will be removed,” acting Minister of Higher Education Shaikh Abdul Baqi Haqqani said as quoted by the TOLO news agency on Monday.

Furthermore, students of both genders will no longer be allowed to study alongside one another.

The ministry also promised to launch a special program which will allow students to study abroad in the future.

Last Tuesday, Taliban leader Hibatullah Akhundzada said “in the future, all issues of governance and life in Afghanistan will be governed by the laws of Holy Sharia”.
